Catholic Censorship

Two Catholic universities have censored students this week for defending the church’s teachings on homosexuality. Cybercast News reports that Duquesne University ([search](“javascript:siteSearch(‘Duquesne University’);”)) in Pittsburgh ordered one student to remove his website opposing a “gay-straight alliance” on campus and to write an essay on Catholic teaching about human dignity. The student took down the site, but refused to write an essay, claiming his post was a paraphrase of Catholic teachings.

And at Gonzaga University ([search](“javascript:siteSearch(‘Gonzaga University’);”)) in Spokane, Washington, officials ordered students not to advertise a lecture on the medical implications of homosexual sex fearing it might stir up anti-gay sentiment. Despite, or perhaps because of the ban, Gonzaga students packed the auditorium for the event.

Hardly surprising.

Many of these schools are Catholic in name only.

Some of them allow gay-pride events as well.
