Ask Notre Dame to Cancel "Day of Silence" and Other Pro-Homosexual Events

The dictatorship of relativism is alive at the University of Notre Dame. While the 88 pro-lifers who peacefully prayed on campus during the 2009 commencement fiasco still face charges and possible jail time, the homosexual movement is welcomed.
From April 12-16, Notre Dame plans to host a pro-homosexual "Stand Against Hate Week." According to the promotional flier, the events are being sponsored by various groups, including the Office of the President (Fr. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C.), the Office of Student Affairs, the Core Council for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual & Questioning Students, the Feminist Voice and Campus Ministry.
Why should any Catholic university cater to the homosexual movement's agenda and sow moral confusion among students?
Ask ND's Board of Trustees to cancel the events
Important to remember is the fact that the "Day of Silence" is a pro-homosexual propaganda tool designed by GLSEN (Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network) to persuade young school children and college students to show sympathy and acceptance for homosexuality.
To counteract this moral threat against the innocence of children, nineteen pro-family organizations formed a coalition encouraging parents to walk out of school with their children on the "Day of Silence." Exodus International is also sponsoring a nationwide "Day of Truth" in schools.
For the record, GLSEN:
- Promotes explicit homosexual books for 7th-12th graders
- Encourages same-sex prom dates & promiscuity
- Organizes 4,000 "Gay-Straight Alliance" clubs in schools
|Fr. Jenkins has not dropped the charges against 88 pro-lifers who entered campus in 2009.
And now, GLSEN's "Day of Silence" agenda is being welcomed right into the hallowed halls of Notre Dame. In fact, the moral teaching of the Catholic Church condemning homosexual acts as "intrinsically disordered" is what is being silenced.
In fact, beginning in 2004, the University of Notre Dame started hosting a yearly "Queer Film Festival." One such event featured Terrence McNally, author of the blasphemous production Corpus Christi that portrays Our Lord Jesus Christ and the Apostles as homosexuals.
Reacting to the scandal back then, TFP Student Action lead multiple petitions of peaceful protest addressed to Fr. John I. Jenkins, politely requesting that he cancel events that promote homosexual vice. Thank God, we believe these efforts made a difference. According to an article published in The Observer on February 16, 2009, "not only will there be no gay film festival this year [at the University of Notre Dame], it's probably kaput for good."
Protest this new scandal at ND
TFP Student Action invites its members to contact Notre Dame's Board of Trustees today. Ask them not to allow the university to become a vehicle for the homosexual movement. It's a matter of Catholic morality. Honor. Fidelity. And truth.
What will the protest achieve? Maybe the scandal will be canceled.
More importantly, God will be honored by our peaceful action. Our faithful protest against the sexual revolution is like a prayer that rises up before the throne of God. Together we affirm: "Even when others abandon Thee and scorn Thy Law, my Lord, I pledge to remain faithful to Thy Commandments."
|Taking a Principled not a Personal Stand|
In writing this statement, TFP Student Action has no intention to defame or disparage anyone. We are not moved by personal hatred against any individual. In intellectually opposing individuals or organizations promoting the homosexual agenda, our only intent is the defense of traditional marriage, the family, and the precious remnants of Christian civilization.
As practicing Catholics, we are filled with compassion and pray for those who struggle against unrelenting and violent temptation to homosexual sin. We pray for those who fall into homosexual sin out of human weakness, that God may assist them with His grace.
We are conscious of the enormous difference between these individuals who struggle with their weakness and strive to overcome it and others who transform their sin into a reason for pride and try to impose their lifestyle on society as a whole, in flagrant opposition to traditional Christian morality and natural law. However, we pray for these too.
We pray also for the judges, legislators and government officials who in one way or another take steps that favor homosexuality and same-sex “marriage.” We do not judge their intentions, interior dispositions, or personal motivations.
We reject and condemn any violence. We simply exercise our liberty as children of God (Rom. 8:21) and our constitutional rights to free speech and the candid, unapologetic and unashamed public display of our Catholic faith. We oppose arguments with arguments. To the arguments in favor of homosexuality and same-sex “marriage” we respond with arguments based on right reason, natural law and Divine Revelation.
In a polemical statement like this, it is possible that one or another formulation may be perceived as excessive or ironic. Such is not our intention.
