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.

Child-sacrifice, euthanasia, worship of strange gods, moral relativism, and indiscriminate sex — sounds much like the later Roman empire.

Wasn't the later Roman Empire officially Christian?
April 5, 2013 at 5:34 pm
and Jesuits were once known as Defenders of the Faith. how sad

"Gender neutral housing on campus." What could possibly go wrong?!?!

Satan must be licking his chops.

Gee, is it time to disband the Jesuits yet? Is there any reason the Church should actually be supporting these wolves among the flock?

It's a shame the popes supressed the jesuits when they shouldn't have, and refuse to when they should.

@william Meyer…one reason comes to mind. The Pope.
Trying to blur the lines between accepting the sinner, which we all do and all are, versus accepting the sin, which we don't do and we all hate, is at the heart of this problem. That and thinking Gods truth works like a poorly organized representative democracy, where activism can lobby change.

I have just finished watching 'I'ts Supernatural' presented by Sid Roth in which they claim that a spokesman from the Vatican is promoting the view on TV (and that this is in an official document too) talking about baptising of aliens and another Vatican spokesman – a Jesuit – is talking about information which will change how the Gospel is presented and that Jesus is an alien….I'm afraid nothing surprises me about the Society of Jesus…many seem to have forgotten their 4th vow of obedience to the Pope or any vestige of the Catechism. I just hope that the Holy Father rebuilds the Church as Jesus commanded his namesake St Francis of Assisi to do.

If Nate Tisa read any of these comments, do you think he would be inclined to change his ways?
April 6, 2013 at 5:02 am
Wow! My dad was a G'town grad, School of Foreign Service in '51, Law in '54. A different world. He passed away last December and had long since repudiate his alma mater's betrayal of the Faith. At least he didn't live to see this horror. Under the guise of diversity and tolerance Satan has gradually supplanted Our Lord as the deity worshipped at Georgetown.
April 6, 2013 at 6:32 am
"…promote, rather than conflict with, our values of diversity, inclusion and the dignity of all members of our community,”
Relativist speak at its best. I doubt Mr. Tisa has heard "Pick up your cross and follow me" or "I have not come to bring peace but the sword." Is that asking too much of a catholic university?
April 6, 2013 at 4:05 pm
You know you're in for a wild ride when people start talking about "redefining Catholicism."
April 6, 2013 at 4:25 pm
Anonymous: no, I don't think that reading these comments, or any comments at all, would induce this Nate Tisa to change his ways. This is because, having embraced the sodomite perversion, he's ruled not by reason but by appetite, indeed by a thoroughly perverted appetite. Thus the most reasonable words in the world wouldn't induce him to abandon his slavery to these basest appetites. For he loves this slavery very much.

The Vatican is fully aware of this and other evils. It's interesting that they do nothing about it. Pope B. when visiting the United States stated, in the churches,schools and in our seminaries the truth will be taught and if the numbers decrease then so be it, but the truth that has been handed down to us from him will never be altered.

Why is Georgetown still called "Catholic"? This is the fault of the Catholic leaders–no other.
April 7, 2013 at 6:05 am
The destruction of America and Canada is fast approaching and so is the rest of the world. God's wrath is surely upon us now.
Given themselves to their lust and shameful habits and abandoning the faith, worshipping the creation instead of the creator, how will not the chastisement of God not upon us.

God help us-!!!

I am sure that the Jesuit fathers of yester years, who were my mentors in high school and in college, would have been scandalized by this and what their younger brothers in the society are mouthing. They were very much obedient to the teachings of the Church to the letter. The new breed of Jesuits are relativists and would compromise Church doctrines and tradition with style and social approval, at the drop of a hat, so to speak.

A journalist once asked P Pio some 40 (sic) years ago: "What do you think about the world of today, Pater Pio?" The somewhat irritated response was: "Can't you see that the world is in a blaze?" So what about the situation now?

Which reminds me that I read where the idea of religious freedom was hatched by the enlightenment thinkers like Thomas Hobbes as an anti-Catholic measure. And this is just another data point. Religious Freedom, while it has a superficial allure as with it Catholics are not fined and jailed for attending Catholic Services, never-the-less it allows many evils to infiltrate via the back door to religious freedom in a secular state. Georgetown is merely following the logic that religious freedom is founded on, and that is we need to show tolerance to all views.
