“If we are staying true to the teachings of the Catholic faith, it would be hypocritical to allow a club that would celebrate a LGBT lifestyle,” said Jerry Joyce, vice president for student affairs at DeSales University.

    This is good, wonderful! Such groups are only formed for people to engage in sex anyway.
