Notre Dame, again....

Activities Office Funds DC trip to Gay March. The students were thrilled! Simply thrilled to have the recognition from admin people. Oh, you can just see the gushing....
A surprise move from the Student Activities Office allowed five students to attend a national gay rights demonstration in Washington D.C. Sunday, sophomore Jackie Emmanuel, president of the Progressive Student Alliance (PSA), said.

The students were granted permission from the Office to use PSA funding to travel to the nation's capital to participate in the National Equality March over the weekend, Emmanuel said.

"The fact that we were University-approved was surprising but it was a wonderful surprise," she said. "The University hasn't always been entirely receptive in the past."...

..."There was such an exciting energy there," she said. "I think a lot of people there had a real sense of frustration with how long the government is taking with these issues, but there was also a sense of celebration."

She said her group hung out in the gay neighborhood of the city and stayed with friends to minimize costs.

"Everybody was so friendly," she said. "This weekend gave me a real sense of empowerment."
Squeeeeeee! What does this move by a Catholic university say to our young people about homosexuality? Nice job, UND, for making our job even harder yet. Ever read what the Church actually teaches about homosexuality?

No doubt objectors will be invited to "dialogue" about this now that the damage has already been done.
