This weekend, Georgetown University’s Lecture Fund “proudly” sponsored a talk by controversial filmmaker Michael Moore.
Moore is uninteresting to me. I don’t believe what he puts in his movies and I certainly don’t believe much that he has to say. He bores me but sometimes what’s interesting to me is others reactions to him.
As we all know, Georgetown’s relationship with Catholicism is a bit strained to say the least. You might recall that in recent years, Georgetown even covered up the “IHS” when Obama spoke at Gaston Hall.
Moore, a Catholic, gave a speech condemning capitalism (of course) also at Gaston Hall. Moore’s speech was replete with f-bombs (surprise surprise) but then Moore made a joke that I think was just over the line by intimating that Jesus was gay.

You know if everyone would just openly and clearly acknowledge the fact that Georgetown has not been a Catholic University for many years, events like this would cease to be scandalous.

Moore, a Catholic
Now THAT is embarassing.
