Georgetown Donates to Pro-Gay “Marriage” Charity
Georgetown University has reportedly donated sports and theater tickets to be raffled off as a donation to a pro-gay “marriage” organization.
The Human Rights Campaign is currently battling defense-of-marriage ballot initiatives in Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, and Washington state. The bishops have come out strongly against gay “marriage” and in some cases have put considerable resources into upholding traditional marriage.
In an effort to raise funds to purchase air time for commercials, the HRC held a fundraiser where attendees could mix and mingle with stars such as Sally Field and purchase items for inflated prices for the cause of gay “marriage.”
Tim Graham originally reported at Newsbusters that Georgetown University donated items to the cause. Along with items such as “two VIP seats” to a taping of the Ellen DeGeneres show or an autographed picture of Barbra Streisand, Graham reports:
Sports fans could bid on two tickets to the World Series donated by Major League Baseball and two tickets to a Georgetown University men’s basketball game and two to a women’s basketball game donated by the “Catholic” college.
A quick perusal of the website listing the event’s details further shows that Georgetown’s University Theater and Performance Studies Department donated tickets to shows such as “Trojan Barbie: A Car Crash Encounter with Euripides’ Trojan Women.”
This support should hardly come as a surprise as Georgetown actively promotes internships with the Human Rights Campaign on its website.
Georgetown, each year, also holds a “Lavender Graduation” ceremony. The Jesuit university’s website describes the event as “a special ceremony for LGBTQ and Ally undergraduate and graduate students to acknowledge their achievements, contributions, and unique experiences at Georgetown University.”
And each year, Georgetown University Pride hosts an on campus event called “Gender Funk Drag Ball” which urges students to take part in a drag show. They advertise, “Put on your alter ego and come out for Genderfunk, the best party this semester! Uncap the lipstick, break out the fishnets, draw on the ‘stache, unleash the chest hair, and have a blast.”
