Here’s a little something Christians ought to watch out for: Far Left wackos piggy-backing onto a “Christian issue” or two in hopes of tricking Christians into supporting them.
Franciscan University, Steubenville, has fired an English professor who specialized in this kind of scam (https://www.lifesitenews.com/opinion/the-seamless-garment-at-steubenville)–pretending to be “pro-life” while devoting every ounce of energy to actively opposing and undermining Catholic teachings. The university forthrightly says that’s why she was fired.
How does the scam work? Well, you set up something called “The New Pro-Life Movement” in which a tepid objection to abortion is linked to every liberal cliche you can think of. That way, anybody who donates to your “pro-life” efforts will also be donating to your much more energetic efforts on behalf of sexual anarchy, pornography, revolutionary politics, and so on. As the professor once remarked on her blog, “To be human is to be disgusting.” Toldja humanists don’t like humanity.
It’s refreshing to see a Catholic college stand up for Catholic principles. It’s gotten to be kind of unusual, in recent years. Good for you, Franciscan University! May you serve as a role model for others.

They have exchanged the truth for a lie. (Speaking of people that would identify themselves with a cause they don’t actually support in order to gain donations, etc.)
Franciscan University is one of the few “Catholic” colleges left that are still Catholic. A few other examples of those holding fast to the Faith are Christendom College, Magdalen College, and Wyoming Catholic College. Unfortunately, the more well-known ones are about as Catholic as your local NOW chapter or Planned Parenthood outlet.
Georgetown, for instance…
I should have added that the colleges I named are not only the few left that are still Catholic, but also the few left that are still genuine colleges, not just day care centers and leftist indoctrination mills.
I find it amazing how Nancy Pelosi claims to be a devout Roman Catholic while she is all for legalized abortion and sexual perversions, and the Roman Catholic church doesn’t say boo about it. I assume she is given the Eucharist.
Not to mention Kerry and Biden…
BTW, they certainly wouldn’t have received communion in any church presided over by Archbishop Raymond Burke–but he was conveniently kicked upstairs to Rome.
And then Rome kicked him out to be a nominal chaplain to the Knights of Malta — from where he was just plain kicked aside to a titular see. For the New Yorkers among us, that’s like (as we used to say) a top-ranking police officer being sent to pound a beat on Staten Island.
I didn’t know that, and am distressed to hear it.
Oops–he was Cardinal Burke, not archbishop.
