Coming soon to a school near you: Students try to banish Catholic priest from campus for telling the truth about homosexuality.

Two gay seniors at George Washington University say they feel alienated because the chaplain at George Washington’s Newman Center rejects homosexuality, and they aren’t going to take it anymore.

The seniors, Damian Legacy and Blake Bergen, have announced a coordinated campaign to rid the campus of the Roman Catholic priest, reports The GW Hatchet, the school’s independent student newspaper.

They also assert that 12 or more students have quit the Newman Center in recent years because they can’t tolerate Father Greg Shaffer’s ardent anti-gay and, for the record, anti-abortion — beliefs.

Editor’s note: All that money spent on college tuition and these two allegedly Catholic students are unable/unwilling to read and/or understand the Catechism. Maybe Cardinal Dolan can find a way to accommodate them?

Michael Voris responds to a Catholic college student’s email.

First ..the email ..

“Hello!  I am writing on behalf of a few of my friends who go to [a university].

I first want to thank you for the work you guys do.  The information that you provide in your videos has helped my few friends and I begin the conversion process of some protestants.  I really want to express my gratitude for this.

However, we have a huge problem.  The Newman Center on campus is such a problem for all Catholics here.  For example, one of our priests here preaches about being a “flexible” Catholic.

Another priest tells students that their sexual activity on campus is okay.  My friends and I went to this workshop on developing a relationship with God.  These old women there spent time discussing about how the Church “is not black and white” and “has many in-consistencies.”

This was all being taught by the Director of Religious Education at the parish!  My friends and I knew it was bad, but we had no idea.  The reason why I am writing this is because I don’t know what to do.

The spiritual damage to all of the students who go the the Newman Center is sickening and saddening.  What should we, as faithful Catholics, do besides just pray?  We pray for things to change all the time, but on a more active role what can we do to help change the situation?

Thank you so much.  The work you do is amazing.  I pray for this ministry every day!

God bless you!”
