The opposite view here:
I am a 100% supporter of pro-LGBT “allies” programs, Catholic or not.
Looking at the “allies” material for another college I see it’s about acceptance and respect, not about sin.
A lot of colleges officially recognize “allies” programs in which faculty and staff voluntarily lend their names to show support. Maybe the Catholic group is trying to get support for that.
The Facebook page has a quote about “respect, sensitivity, and compassion,” all three of which I agree with.
Where I’m coming from on this, as I’ve said before, is that I was labeled as LGBT and harassed (because I didn’t play sports) at a small Catholic college that did almost nothing about it. When this subject comes up, instead of criticizing LGBT, I’d rather stand up for right and wrong.
If somebody’s paying to attend a college, LGBT or not, that person deserves to be treated like a human being. If they’re paying room and board, they should be allowed to sleep in their own room, come and go in their own room, and have some level of peace and quiet, just like someone who’s renting an apartment.
I sure could have used somebody in a position of authority to say, “Steve, that’s not a nice thing to do, writing insults on signit’s door, please don’t do it.” “John, you really shouldn’t put firecrackers under signit’s door, he might be trying to sleep.” “Sean, you shouldn’t have kicked in signit’s door; he should have the right to have a door to his room that he can open and close.”
I might disagree with some of the implications of that, depending on how they mean that.
I still strongly agree, though, with the idea of “allies.” I’d rather side with the “allies” than the haters.
