Georgetown U. employees lead drive for same-sex marriage

Catholic World News - August 24, 2010

Employees at Georgetown, America’s oldest Catholic university, have been instrumental in founding a new organization that will seek to rally support for same-sex marriage on the campuses of Catholic institutions.

“’Catholics for Equality’ represents outright rebellion—‘mutiny’ in the words of one of the group’s founders—in opposition to the U.S. bishops and Catholic doctrine,” charged Patrick Reilly, the president of the Cardinal Newman Society, in a letter to Georgetown’s President John DiGioia. Reilly called for action to ensure that faculty and employees at the Jesuit school would not be involved in the dissidents' effort.

    Having priests and others openly defy Church teachings on a Catholic school campus is beyond belief. Why must primary and secondary teachers (who must have at least a bachelors degree) sign At-Will contracts in which they can be easily fired for not teaching doctrine, while those who teach something at the college-level do not and can openly defy the Church?

    "Catholics for Equality" And not "Catholics for Depravity"? Strange...I wonder why? Seems more fitting.
