The American Society for Tradition, Family and Property is out with a new report on “pro-homosexual clubs” at Catholic colleges and universities. By report, we mean a lengthy chart naming the student clubs or resource centers for LGBT students and allies and citing other objectionable material, including supposedly objectionable material, including the “pro-homosexual film” Brokeback Mountain in the campus library at the College of Saint Benedict/Saint John’s University.
The anti–gay group is aiming to have 100,000 people sign a petition demanding the leaders of Catholic colleges to “disband” the organizations that “favor the homosexual agenda” and “push for the mainstreaming of unnatural vice”:
Why are pro-homosexual clubs allowed to promote anti-Catholic behavior on Catholic campuses?
After examining the official web sites of 244 Catholic universities and colleges in America, TFP Student Action found that 107 – or 43% – recognize student clubs that favor the homosexual agenda. Many of these clubs promote same-sex “marriage,” open homosexuality in the military, and push for the mainstreaming of unnatural vice.
“Students are getting immoral messages from these clubs,” observed TFP Student Action Director John Ritchie. “A sort of dictatorship of tolerance is slowly squeezing out the truth, silencing Catholic teaching right on Catholic campuses. More and more Catholic college students are confronted with visible, active and well-funded pro-homosexual clubs that openly contradict natural law and undermine moral values. To see this happening at Catholic institutions of higher learning is particularly disturbing.”
“TFP Student Action is rushing to collect 100,000 petitions, urging the presidents of Catholic universities to uphold authentic Catholic doctrine,” Ritchie said. “It’s time to correct the scandal and disband these 107 pro-homosexual clubs.”
