That Should Be Easy!

The Cardinal Newman Society and Students for Life, among others, are encouraging the Jesuit Seattle University to sever its ties with Planned Parenthood. On a Catholic campus, this should be a no-brainer, to say the least.

Of course, when I went to the school’s website, the first thing I saw was a picture of legal abortion supporter, Washington senator Patty Murray.

As we urge Congress to defund Planned Parenthood, we ought to be looking closer to home, too.

    Every one of their dorms is named after a great Jesuit saint, ie. Campion Hall. I lived in a CO-ED dorm(unfortunately, the only one that had room)named Bellarmine Hall. You couldn’t tell that you were on a Catholic campus based on its atmosphere. Thankfully, I was able to move to an off-campus apartment after two semesters!
    How sad these saints would be if they knew that their names were attached to nominally Catholic universities such as this.

    Like fake Catholic hospitals, it is well-past time to strip fake Catholic universities of their Catholic title. Seattle U is not Catholic unless it actually begins BEING Catholic. Right now, its not.

      I’m VERY conflicted by the Jesuit Order. As a historical buff, but by no-means an expert; I know that the Jesuits started as a very strict and devout order who swore allegiances to God, Catholicism, and the Pope. I am also aware, as I’m sure many Catholics, especially on here, that they were instrumental in stemming the tide against the Reformation, which was sweeping Europe during the mid-1500’s onwards. And yet, as of the moment, they seem nothing like they used to. Whether it’s this scandalous association with a pro-abortion Senator or defying an arch-bishop by handing out communion to homosexuals outside of church grounds after said arch/bishop said not to; not to mention other improprieties that cannot be overlooked, especially by the faithful.
      This entire issue is further complicated, at least for me personally, by the fact that my mother visits a Polish Jesuit church, since they offer services in her native tongue (Polish), and comes home beaming afterwards. So the discussion, naturally, turns to something else, entirely, which is: is this an issue of theological liberalism that’s “captivated” “Western” religious orders/organizations for many years now; political tug-o-war; or something else entirely? Whatever history may uncover about this period in regards to the Catholic Church and its “orders”; the one thing I can remain certain of is that they will call it a very disorganized and chaotic time in the annals of history. I pray, mightily and fervently, that this isn’t the beginning of the end. Peace and God bless one-and-all! ~Michael W.
