This says it all. Georgetown University’s first openly gay student president was sworn in with his hand not on the Bible but on a copy of a book written by an openly gay radical former Jesuit’s book which, according to the author’s website, “opens the door to a new ethical understanding and acceptance of homosexual relationships as morally good, and gay love as a deeper sharing in divine love.”
The Hoya reports GUSA President Nate Tisa (SFS ’14) was sworn into office as the university’s first openly gay student body president with his hand on the book “Taking a Chance on God” by former Jesuit John McNeill. Tisa told The Hoya he chose the book because it redefines Catholicism in a way that affirms LGBTQ Catholics and other groups.
“I thought it had special significance at Georgetown, where our Catholic and Jesuit identity is a strong and crucial part of our heritage that can promote, rather than conflict with, our values of diversity, inclusion and the dignity of all members of our community,” Tisa reportedly said.
Tisa said one of his main goals is gender-neutral housing on the Jesuit campus.
