Only sodomite "marriage" may be advanced at Notre Dame?

Writing for TFP, Peter Miller reports:
Officials at the University of Notre Dame revoke permission for pro-marriage table, tell young Catholics to “cease and desist” promoting natural marriage on campus.

Sound Bend, Indiana: April 29, 2014 -- Young volunteers with Tradition Family Property Student Action were ordered to “cease and desist” promoting traditional marriage at the University of Notre Dame on Friday, April 25.
“Permission to have a table had been granted through an officially recognized on-campus student group,” said TFP Student Action director John Ritchie.  “But that permission was revoked for some odd reason.  Police officers arrived soon after we started giving out pro-family literature and cut the event short, informing us that we were no longer welcome to talk to students about the importance of preserving the sanctity of marriage between 1 man and 1 woman, which fully agrees with 2,000 years of Catholic teaching,” Ritchie explained.

The TFP handout, 10 Reasons Why Same-Sex “Marriage” is Harmful and Must Be Opposed, was being warmly received by students and faculty members alike. However, several pro-homosexual students ripped up the flier, shouted obscenities, and expressed their desire to deprive the pro-true marriage volunteers of their right to free speech.

“I’m still trying to fully understand why the event was shut down,” said Ritchie.  “I was hoping to find a more supportive environment for the Catholic position on marriage. But instead, Notre Dame police officers told us that we only had proper permission to have a table – but that nobody was allowed to actually man the table, which was the whole point of having a table in the first place. How can a table man itself?  So we were forced to leave.”

"It seems like the more you hear about inclusion and diversity in higher education, the less you hear about the truth, the more the truth is shut out of the conversation" added Ritchie.  "We need to pray for all the Catholic students at Notre Dame who are fighting the good fight for moral values and the defense of natural marriage.  Because the future of our nation depends on the very institution of the family, united by mother and father, and open to the children that God gives them."

This student wanted people to throw TFP fliers in his trash bin without reading them.  But none were seen doing so. 

Those who abandon Divine Revelation and the Natural Law will no longer seek God and His precepts and Commandments but will instead pursue their own lusts and fantasies. Such people will create and adore their own gods which are almost always a mythical projection of their own vices. They attribute a religious dimension to these vices to "baptize" them, to justify them in their own darkened minds.

It was Saint Cyprian of Carthage, writing against the Greco-Roman pagan world and its vices, who said:

"That Jupiter of theirs is not more supreme in dominion than in vice, inflamed with earthly love in the midst of his own breaking forth by the help of birds to violate the purity of boys. And now put the question: Can he who looks upon such things be healthy-minded or modest? Men imitate the gods whom they adore, and to such miserable beings their crimes become their religion." (Letters 1:8).

In a series of letters written from 1969-1970, Sister Lucia [of the Fatima apparition] wrote: "It is indeed sad that so many people let themselves be dominated by the diabolical wave that is sweeping the world, and that they are blinded to the point of being incapable of seeing error! Their principal fault is they have abandoned prayer; in this way they have become estranged from God, and without God everything fails. The devil is very cunning and looks for our weak points in order to attack us. If we are not diligent and careful to obtain strength from God, we shall fall, for our age is very wicked and we are weak. Only the strength of God can keep us on our feet."
Only the strength of God can keep us on our feet!  But increasingly, prayer is being abandoned throughout the Church.  Not only is prayer not generally encouraged, it is often actively discouraged by the promotion or toleration of a circus-like atmosphere in most parishes. 

By now we've all heard the asinine claims that the Fatima message is no longer relevant, that Russia has converted and that we've entered a period of peace.  Really?  Is that why Russia has been behaving so belligerently?  On April 22, 1984, the Most Reverend John Shojiro Ito, the Bishop of Niigata in Japan, issued a pastoral letter in which he declared the events at Akita to be supernatural. And it was at Akita that Our Lady said to Sister Agnes Sasagawa:

"As I told you, if men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never have seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead. The only arms that will remain for you will be the rosary and Sign left by My Son. Each day recite the prayers of the rosary. With the rosary, pray for the Pope, the Bishops, and the priests.

The work of the devil will infiltrate even the Church in such a way that one will see Cardinals opposing Cardinals, Bishops against other Bishops. The priests who venerate Me will be scorned and opposed by their confreres...churches and altars sacked, the Church will be full of those who accept compromises and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord. The demon will be especially implacable against souls consecrated to God. The thought of the loss of so many souls is the cause of my sadness. If sins increase in number and gravity, there will be no longer pardon for them."

One by one, these prophecies have been fulfilled. We have witnessed the work of the devil infiltrating the Church and Cardinals and Bishops opposing one another. We have witnessed priests who venerate Our Lady being scorned and opposed.  In the UK, my friend Deacon Nick Donnelly has been silenced (see here). We have witnessed churches and altars sacked as parish after parish has been closed. And we have witnessed the sexual abuse of children by priests and consecrated souls who have been pressed by the demon to leave the service of the Lord and a spirit of compromise which has swept over the Church.

On November 5, 1977, Our Lady spoke to Fr. Gobbi in a locution saying:

"Do not stop to consider the ever thickening darkness, the sin which has been set up as the norm of human action, the suffering which is mounting to its peak and the chastisement which this humanity is preparing with its own hands."

Our Lady did not want us to become discouraged by the sin and darkness which is all about us.

But she wants us to acknowledge the reality of sin and to recognize its consequences. Pope John Paul II often spoke of "a loss of the sense of sin." The people of former times were more honest than the people of our present day and didn't blame society, genetics, or a multitude of other factors for their sins. Today, there is a widespread denial of the existence of sin and moral laws (even the Natural Law) and this angers God. This because it makes God appear as the Creator of evil, and this blasphemy (not to mention pride and hypocrisy) on the part of His creature man will have its consequences.

It is necessary now, while it is still "today," to preach about the reality of sin and the need for repentance. Time is running short. Will we embrace the Mercy of God? Or will we continue to embrace a culture of death and immorality, a culture which denies the reality of sin while murdering innocent children in the womb and advancing homosexual "marriage."

Notre Dame has been disintegrating for quite some time now:

One by one our supposedly "Catholic" universities are crumbling.

Just when you think that things cannot get any worse you are proven wrong. What in Heaven's name would possess Notre Dame, a school named after Our Lady, to do something like this? More importantly, how much longer will God tolerate all of this before He sends a Great Chastisement?
