Gay-rights group barred from recruiting on Catholic campus in Texas

Catholic World News - September 09, 2010

A Catholic college in Texas has ruled that a gay-rights group cannot participate in a campus event at which non-profit groups recruit student interns.

St. Edward’s University declined a bid by Equality Texas to participate in the campus job fair, noting that the group’s aims are “in direct conflict with the mission of St. Edward’s University.” Equality Texas has lobbied for recognition of same-sex unions in the state.

The Cardinal Newman Society, a Virginia-based group dedicated to upholding Catholic identity in education, welcomed the school’s “common-sense decision.”

    This sure does make me want to send my grandchildren to St. Edwards ... they are not only taking a stand for Catholic teaching, but also for the absolute truth of Holy Scriptures. There's a loving, caring reason for all the rules ... not to restrict, but to free, and most important, to protect GOD's beautiful familial design for the sacred gift of life.

    Way to go, St Edwards! Funny thing is, St Ed's is run by the same religious order (Holy Cross Fathers) who run Notre Dame. Same order, two different universities, vastly different results as far as upholding orthodoxy goes. Hmmm.....
