Part 22 of my ongoing survey of the follies of many modern day Jesuits. If anyone doubts that religion of Georgetown University is Leftism rather than Catholicism:
Georgetown University, America’s oldest Roman Catholic institution of higher learning and located in the U.S. capital of Washington, D.C., actively encouraged visitors to its website to contribute to a vast array of left-wing activist groups in the name of supporting “civil rights.” A page on the website for Georgetown’s law library asked visitors to give to Planned Parenthood, NARAL Pro-Choice America, the leftist attack dog Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), LGBT law group Lambda Legal, and others.
“One way to resist oppression is to strengthen the organizations that fight against oppressors. You can make a change, even if it’s just an hour a week or a dollar a week. If we all give just a little, it adds up and it keeps our civil rights, our environment — our nation — from being destroyed,” the page, entitled “A Brief History of Civil Rights in the United States,” urged visitors.
The page listed all sorts of left-wing advocacy groups, including the SPLC, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), NARAL, Planned Parenthood, EMILY’s List, and Lambda Legal. It also solicited requests for organizations users “would like to see added to this list.”
Go here to read the rest. This is not a one off situation. Georgetown brought Cecile Richards, the former head of Planned Parenthood, to campus as a speaker back in 2016. This year pro-abort “Catholic” Democrat Senator Dick Durbin of Illinois received the Timothy S. Healy, SJ award from Georgetown President John DeGioia who lauded Durbin for devoting “his life to the core Jesuit value of service to others.” Faithful Catholic parents who send their offspring to places like Georgetown are either innocent dupes or willfully blind.
