The Warrior Reports on Gay Domestic Partner Benefits at Marquette
“In our promotion of diversity and inclusion, we can confuse where a Catholic school teaches and stands for,” he said.After quoting a couple of liberal faculty members, the article cites the MUSG senator who sponsored the resolution passed by student government (as summarized by the writer) “saying that it was intended as a ‘step forward’ after the controversy surrounding the retracted O’Brien deanship offer and a part of student government’s larger mission of helping students feel a part of Marquette . . . ‘Inclusivity is a really high priority for MUSG,’” she said.
Kurz said that the Church, while it treats gays and lesbians with respect, does not support homosexuality—but that the new policy does.
“Respect first, tolerance yes, but not promotion,” Kurz said.
Kurz, however, said the potential hires most likely to reject Marquette over a lack of partner benefits would “be ideologically opposed to Catholic teaching” and could undermine the university’s religious mission.
“What does it mean to be a Catholic school, if we can’t be Catholic?” he asked.
Apparently, “inclusivity” actually translates as “screw this Catholic stuff, we want to be up to date and trendy.”
How serious MUSG is about real “inclusivity” was shown when MUSG officers participated in a series of secret meetings with lesbian academic/activist Ronnie Sanlo, who came to campus to “advise” Marquette on LGBT issues.
Only student organizations and faculty members sympathetic to the gay agenda were allowed to meet with Sanlo.
Marquette student Joseph Dobbs asked rhetorically in The Warrior, “What makes the LGBT community better than me?”
The answer, of course, was very simple. People who didn’t have the proper politically correct attitudes needed to be excluded. Had they been allowed to speak, they might have complicated things with diverse viewpoints. And that kind of diversity is never welcome on a college campus.
