Expecting college students to remain abstinent? lulz...
Distribution of condoms is not an underground activity, but a public health concern. The unofficial student organization doing it is performing a great service to their community.
The faculty should mind its own business.
This is what you said in the OP:
#2 It's a liberal studies college. Not a seminary. Not a Nunnery. Do you know the difference?
No, you are flipping it on its head...It is the progressive group handing out the condoms against stated policy, and ignoring the warnings from the school that has caused this situation. If this group doesn't want that kind of heat, they shouldn't be attending a Catholic University. Oh, and a note on what members of the Catholic church practice or don't, believe, or don't. The Church is not an institution that bends to the whims of the congregation. So, if the members think that the Church is wrong on the subject of contraception, it matters not. The Vatican is who sets the doctrine, NOT popular consensus...If you want that join the Universalist church.That statement, your statement, is contrary to anything in the news article. No "progressive group" is forcing a private University to do anything. It's quite the opposite. The Catholic Church via the Association of Jesuit Colleges and the campus police is forcing students (of various religions and beliefs) to adhere to their rules. Rules that most practicing Catholics ignore. That is why I questioned if you actually read the article you posted. In the OP, you seemed to not have any real idea of what the story was about and were just making up some nonexistent "progressive" bad guy.
No one said it is a seminary....It is however a private college. The course of study has NO bearing on whether or not it is a private institution.#2 It's a liberal studies college. Not a seminary. Not a Nunnery.
Do you?Do you know the difference?
In my mind this goes to the same issue as the religious deferments for certain health insurance benefits and the single woman (in CA?) who got fired from her teaching position for having pre-marital sex. If you don't want to live up to the stated values of a group or organization.... don't do business with them. Don't get a job with a Catholic Hospital or a parochial school if you want them to pay for your contraceptives or accept your out-of-wedlock pregnancy. Don't go to a Catholic University and then expect that their stated values cannot be enforced upon you while you are on their campus. This is basic common sense, folks. Except that common sense no longer exists. It has been replaced with what I consider to be an Anti-Principle meme designed to destroy ANY and ALL belief systems and replace them with the moral relativism that is so rampant in this world these days.
