knowing your place
By Diogenes ( articles ) | Oct 20, 2010
Enterprising undergraduates at Boston College, having learned from their elders that compassion is measured in latex, are distributing condoms to their fellow students. One of the leaders in this initiative, writing in the campus newspaper, The Heights, expresses dismay that some people see the condom giveaway as an affront to the character of the Catholic school.
We do not do these things in spite of our place at a Jesuit institution, but in keeping with it.
Alas, too true. Yes, one Jesuit—one-- did berate the students for their casual distribution of contraceptives. But they’re still on campus, they’re still giving away condoms, and with each day of inaction the leadership of the Jesuit institution is confirming the accuracy of the young woman’s claim.
