-- Fran Lebowitz to Haaretz.com
In addition to her atheist position, Lebowitz's pro-abortion stance makes her message patently incompatible with the mission of the Church, which Fairfield University should uphold. Furthermore, her support for the legalization of same-sex “marriage,” as well as her own identification with the homosexual movement, deserves rejection, not a speaking platform at a Catholic university. The website for the event promises “insights on timely issues such as gender, race, gay rights, and the media.”
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops states that "...Catholic institutions should not honor those who act in defiance of our fundamental moral principles. They should not be given awards, honors or platforms which would suggest support for their actions."
Would Saint Ignatius give her a prestigious platform to spread her errors?
