Notre Dame is at it again - Alumni funds used to send students to the gay rights parade in DC

Notre Dame University, one of the nation's top catholic universities, gave money from the students activities fund to pay for five students' trip to the gay rights march on Washington, DC over the weekend.  The money from this fund comes from the school itself as well as from money raised from the Alumni Association. 

Alumni of the school are non to pleased to find this is how thier money is being spent.  Many people in the association are still upset at the University's decision to have President Obama as the speaker at the graduation ceremony. 

The catholic church has the strictest policies when it comes to homosexuality.  This has only increased since Pope Benedict has taken over from Pope John Paul.  The pope has made it very clear that you are persona non gratis to serve as a priest if you have any homosexual feelings or approve of the "lifestyle". 

The controversy has just added to the bad press that the University has received since the graduation.  The alumni association has been trying to get an explanation from the school, but has yet to recieve a satisfactory answer.  Apparently the funds are made available to students as long as one faculty member approves the trip. 

The university needs to decide if it is a catholic university or not.  If the university wants to be more open to social issues such as gay rights and abortion than that is it's choice.  But it cannot continue to call itself a catholic university while it is supporting things that the church has very clear guidelines against. 

The catholics that are part of the alumni association needs to ask themselves is giving money to the school that is clearly turning it's back on it's roots is a worthwhile use of thier money.

I think it's time to strip the name from them.

The Church has split. It may not be official but it is a reality that must be faced. If you read many of the statements issued by the USCCB and compare them to the Catechism you will find that the American Bishops have begun teaching things that are diametrically opposed to Scripture, Tradition and all that has been held true for 2000 years.

Their views on "social justice" come immediately to mind. Lately they have said that we have a right to work, turning the whole notion of responsibility on its head. The Bible clearly states in 2 Thessalonians 3:10: For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule: "If a man will not work, he shall not eat."

Paragraph 2427 of the Catechism states: Human work proceeds directly from persons created in the image of God and called to prolong the work of creation by subduing the earth, both with and for one another. Hence work is a duty: "If any one will not work, let him not eat."

Yet, in "The Seven Themes of Catholic Social Teaching" the USCCB state: If the dignity of work is to be protected, then the basic rights of workers, owners, and others must be respected—the right to productive work..."

If, contrary to Church teaching, we now have a "right" to work someone must have a responsibility to supply a job for us. That's the logical extension of the Bishops teaching. I guess that this would be the government. All very Communist and in line with the thinking of the current administration, wouldn't you say?

Pope Paul IV wrote that "The smoke of Satan has entered the Church". My priest, Father Mark, says that this is direct reference to the influence of Masonic teachings entering through all levels of the Church because so many of the members of the hierarchy are involved in Freemasonry, the enemy of the Church and the Truth. I believe that he is right about this.

Catholics, and all Christians, need to know and understand the Truth. We are facing an incredibly effective propaganda machine, designed and run by Satan himself. "For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect." Matthew 24:24.

Sorry to get all Bibley on you but you touched a nerve with your article. I believe what we are seeing is the by product of a great war that is going on in the spiritual realm. It is becoming more and more intense with every passing moment and we are deeply involved. This war is about us. Our eternal salvation and future rests on the outcome.

I agree with Chuck - time for the Catholic Church to excommunicate them. Can they do that to a University?
