Group blasts Catholic university over 'queer studies'

Another article: http://www.tfp.org/what_we_do/index/depaul_queer_studies.htm


And DePaul will continue to be Catholic how?


The Catechism of the Catholic Church couldn't be more clear on this subject:


"2357 Homosexuality refers to relations between men or between women who experience an exclusive or predominant sexual attraction toward persons of the same sex. It has taken a great variety of forms through the centuries and in different cultures. Its psychological genesis remains largely unexplained. Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity, tradition has always declared that “homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered.” They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstance can they be approved."

One has to wonder which part of this paragraph is too challenging for the Vincentians who run DePaul University.

That is simply sick. Obviously DePaul has forsaken its Catholic identity and exchanged it for a lie (Romans 1).

Lee, well said. If one rejects propositions which are to be held definitively by all, then one is no longer in communion with the Church.

Since the vast majority of sexual abuse committed by priests has been homosexual in nature, one has to wonder if the Vincentians see this as relevant.

The homosexual orientation is "intrinsically disordered" (CCC, 2357). Why then are the Vincentians promoting "queer studies"? Do they accept the Magisterial teaching on the homosexual inclination?
