Settlement between Philadelphia Catholic college, homosexual ‘priest’

Catholic World News - March 22, 2011

Chestnut Hill College and Jim St. George have reached a settlement less than a month after the college announced that the openly homosexual “priest” would no longer be teaching classes there. St. George, the pastor of a self-described “independent Catholic” parish that is not in communion with the Holy See, had taught courses in Scripture and religion as a part-time professor over the previous year.

Terms of the settlement were not disclosed.

    I graduated from Chestnut Hill College in '65, after having had a terrific education; at that time it was only for women and was very traditional. Over the years that changed and it became very liberal in its newsltters, and I no longer supported it. They seemed to be focused on running cruises (for the alumnae) and at one point when I saw no crucifix in their Christmas picture of their self-designated great steps I send an email asking why; no response. Who checks out their applicants?
