Jesuit faculty member rallies support for Georgetown gay-rights group

Catholic World News - September 29, 2010

A Jesuit professor has joined in rallying support for same-sex marriage on the campus of Georgetown University.

Father Joseph Palacios, a sociology teacher, is a member of the board of Catholics for Equality, a group that is pushing for legal recognition of same-sex unions. He argues that Catholics are ready to embrace the cause because “Catholicism, as a religious group, is one of the most progressive Christian groups” in the country.

    The Legionnaires were founded by a man who gave his life over to the evil one, but the Jesuits seem to be leaving their holy founder to do the evil one's work.

    Let's see: BC last week, LMU and Georgetown this week and all three stories about Jesuits promoting things decidedly against the Magisterium. Wonder if there is a trend or a generalization one can make about these "coincidences?"
