Coming Out Week at [Jesuit] G’Town Is a Busy One
Georgetown University is celebrating “Coming Out Week” with an array of activities including a “kiss-in,” an “LGBTQ BBQ,” and a Buddhist meditation for LGBTQ students and allies to relieve the stress.
A large banner on campus with the Georgetown seal can be seen in this video taken by Catholic author Dawn Eden:
She writes at Patheos [http://www.patheos.com/blogs/feastofeden/2012/10/georgetown-university-hides-catholic-truth-in-the-closet-during-coming-out-week/]:
The above video shows two large signs hanging above Georgetown’s Red Square: one advertising “The Spirit of Georgetown” and the other advertising the Georgetown University Office of Student Affairs’ LGBTQ Resource Center‘s “Coming Out Week.”You can get a better look at the “Spirit of Georgetown” sign on the university’s “Mission and Ministry” page, while a larger version of the “Coming Out Week” poster is on the Facebook page of one of the Georgetown LGBTQ Resource Center’s faculty advisers.
What strikes me about the juxtaposition of the two posters is that each one includes “The Great Seal of Georgetown University.”
Just last week, The Cardinal Newman Society reported that Georgetown University donated sports and theater tickets to be raffled off as a donation to the pro-gay “marriage” organization, Human Rights Campaign, which is currently battling defense-of-marriage ballot initiatives in Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, and Washington state.
On top of that, The LGBTQ Resource Center on campus promoted an on-campus kiss-in. “Show your pride this year by Coming Out through our closet door as a proud LGBTQ or Ally, and participating in the midday ‘Kiss-In’. Be sure to wear your ‘I Am’ t-shirt throughout the day to promote visibility and awareness about LGBTQ life on campus!” reads the website.
They also publicized a lecture by the Senior Legislative Council for the aforementioned Human Rights Campaign.
The site states that the lecturer “Ty Cobb works closely with Congress and the Obama administration on a range of LGBT issues including marriage, Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, and international issues.”
Even the Buddhist Meditation Sangha organization is getting in on the act tonight by co-sponsoring a “tailored meditation instruction and practice to target stress and other issues, along with peer-facilitated discussion of the power of mindfulness in our lives as LGBTQ and Ally humans.” They remind all that “No meditation experience is necessary.”
Not mentioned anywhere on the LGBTQ Resource Center website is a lecture promoting the Church’s teachings on sexuality.
