Jesuits Celebrate Diversity? Don't bet the Council of Trent on that One, Bucko!
That's what a young Gay Loyola Law Student tells Mary Schmich in this morning's Chicago Tribune, while detailing his work for Gay Marriage, while shepherded by Il.Representative Greg Harris who is crafting a law to make Same Sex Marriage the Real Deal.
Pretzel rhetoric is a Progressive thing. The Jesuits might be moral and ethical cowards these days, but celebrate diversity they do not. At least they are not expected to do so. Here is what Loyola - the saint - says:
“We should always be disposed to believe that that which appears white is really black, if the hierarchy of the Church so decides” St. Ignatius Loyola - The Capo Di Tutti Capi of the Jesuits said that and the Catholic Church holds that Homosexuality - Gay Lifestyle - Sex With Same & etc. is a Sin.
But then there is the Secular Media and Mary Schmich.
Greg Harris 'shepherded' Gay Loyola Law student John Litchfield to Mary Schmich.
Mary Schmich heard a real diversity feel good story about . . .get this . . .A Gay Initiative at Loyola University of Chicago! Loyola University is not only Catholic, but Jesuit and now Mary Schmich, the Jeannette McDonald to Eric Zorn's Nelson Eddy at the Celebration of Diversity Chicago Tribune. Who can forget their cooingly delightful 'Dear Mary'-'Dear Eric' Blogger Smooches?
When I I',m Calling You -OOOooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!
Sorry. This was such a feel good story that I'm All Fiber One with The Milk of Human Kindness! Hey, I think I'll rent Milk get under a snugger blanket with popcorn and Green Tea and feel good all weekend.
Nah, I'll probably be wallowing in my heterosexual life-style born of my two parent ( one each -a female woman and an arrested development butch male)family, nurtured in Catholic Grade School, High School, and at Loyola University twice ( Bachelors and Masters), fulfilled and graced in the sacrament of Marriage with three children.
Yep, Mary Schmich thinks that this story needs to raise the warm and fuzzies on all us Catholics out here in Helot-land.
The fact of the matter is . . . Gay lifestyle*, all the man/man girl/girl sex stuff - which part goes where and etc. - avoids the whole issue of procreation and propagation of the Faithful. Catholic Boy and Catholic Girl join together to beget little Catholic Boys and Girls. Gay lifestyle is the domain of the Secular Universities and Secular Media. Not at Loyola. Hell, the Jesuits even frowned roundly on the Heterosexual Lifestyle when I went there and there were plenty of Gay Ramblers as far back as 1970. Great Business Students as I recall. Shoot, I went to AIDS-related funerals of at least five pals from my old College days. They were all buried with the Sacraments.
No Mary Schmich. While this is a dandy feel good, uplifting, heart-tugging, inspirational . . .hey, did Tyler Perry script this too? . . .tale, it is disingenuous - new speak for not honest.
This is an Illinois Representative Greg Harris propaganda piece to help push his Gay Marriage Agenda. This is Greg Harris at work with the compliant Chicago Media. Gay Life-Style is not a Sacrament. It makes Gay Happy an should be tolerated by us Divesity Sexual Lifestayle Types - heterosexuals - guys and girls who get married and such.
Read Mary's story. Do . . . .I'm all buttery yet! Sigh.
* Covered as a sin in the Catechism of the Catholic Church Articles 2357-2359).
So is fornication, masturbation, and pornography. I needed ( need) to wear out a path to the Old Confessional on a couple of those myself, but never seemed to need to form a support group. I wonder if Advocacy Politics covers lads who 'Beat The Bishop?' That would be one HUGE Progressive Demographic - You May Already Be a Member!
