[Jesuit] Boston College’s newspaper documents history of ‘LGBT community’ on campus

The Cardinal Newman Society’s “Report Card”

In a piece that clearly has the Catholic Church playing the villain role for her teachings against same-sex activity, Boston College’s student newspaper published a history of the “LGBT community” on campus, documenting the stories of current and former students. Some actions that the administration should be applauded for are portrayed in the negative as discriminatory, and any actions of the college that catered to the demands of students are seen as positive.

A BC spokesman quoted in the article seems to lament that because Boston College is Catholic, it’s still expected to uphold “unpopular” and “out of touch” Catholic teachings:

Dunn said that while BC is fully committed to meeting its students’ need, it, like all Catholic institutions, is still obligated to uphold tenets of its faith.

“Sometimes those commitments can be unpopular and seem greatly out of touch with the times,” Dunn said. “As with any Catholic university in the United States, we grapple with how best to meet those dual obligations.”
