On January 29, 2018, TFP Student Action went to Swarthmore College, in Swarthmore, Penn., to oppose yet another attack against God and the Church: A new college “course” for students called “Queering the Bible,” slated to begin this upcoming fall semester, and the existing course titled “Queering God: Feminist and Queer Theology.”
As fervent Catholics, TFP Student Action members could not sit idly by as this blasphemy develops under the guise of higher learning. Therefore, they went to Swarthmore, Penn. to stage a peaceful, prayerful protest against the irreverent courses.
“If your mother or father suffered an attack, you would naturally defend them,” said TFP Student Action Director John Ritchie. “And that's what we did. We defended the holy honor of our Father in heaven. The protest was above all an act of reparation. From that standpoint, we accomplished our first goal: Reparation to God.”
About 20 supporters came out for the prayerful protest, including a Catholic priest -- who led the recitation of the holy Rosary -- two war veterans, and local Catholics.
Groups of Swarthmore students came by, but they mainly stayed off to the side, watching as the protest unfolded. There were a few liberal students, however, who attempted to justify the pro-homosexual courses.
A good number of drivers honked approvingly as they drove past the peaceful protest. The support received from the local community demonstrated how America still is One Nation Under God and most Americans aren't about to give up on that meaningful and uplifting concept, despite the secular takeover within much of post-modern academia.
After the protest ended, a delegation of TFP Student Action volunteers went to Parrish Hall, the college’s administration building, to present the president, Dr. Valerie Smith, with the protests of 14,119 online signatories, who urge the college to cancel the blasphemous courses called “Queering the Bible” and “Queering God.”
