Used to be Catholic: Georgetown University

I wish that I could say that the following article surprises me. It doesn’t.  Too many so called Catholic Universities have betrayed their Catholic mission.

“According to The Hoya, Jesuit Georgetown University’s student newspaper, officials at the University have said they are willing to broach the topic of “gender-blind housing,” which would “not take into account gender when assigning housing to students.”

This past Sunday, Georgetown student senators voted to “take a closer look” at this suggestion for on-campus housing, the article reported, which “could lead to a more accepting atmosphere for LGBTQ students.”

Regarding the proposal, Todd Olsen, Vice President for Student Affairs, reportedly told The Hoya, “I am open to discussing ideas and interests with students as they pursue this dialogue.” Read more here.

Gender blind dorms. Gee what could go wrong?  Assigning men and women to tiny little rooms, what so wrong?

Yup. It is official. Common sense is not very common.

So much for a Catholic Institution promoting and teaching the virtue of chastity. Hooking up is much more modern and enlightened.
