Common sense no longer seems to exist in places where it should be thriving… Institutions of higher learning seem to be lacking this virtue more than any other location on planet earth. You know, not that very long ago, 18 and 19 year old college kids stormed the beaches of Normandy to help keep the world free from evil. Now, just last month, 18 and 19 year old college kids called the authorities at Emory University because someone wrote in chalk “Vote Trump” on the steps. This horrible act of hate they say, made them feel unsafe. People, this stuff cannot be made up! The so called intelligentsia will someday be in charge of this country. I can’t fathom a more scary thought than that…Now I need my safe space!
As crazy as this all looks on paper or on the screen, this ranks low compared to what happened earlier this month at Loyola Marymount University, a Catholic institution of higher learning. An employee of this Catholic University expressed her views to some students that only two genders exist, male and female. She also asked if the students had permission to post the sexually explicit flyers they were posting. She mentioned that they were inappropriate for a Catholic university. LMU authorities were called in, along with members of the LAPD to investigate a hate crime. What could this hate crime possibly be? Denying transgenderism of course! Also, disrespecting a person’s existence. Well, suffice to say, the authorities suspended this 15 year employee without even a hearing! Okay, I could see something this ridiculous happening in the quad at UC Berkeley or at Humboldt State. ( I did not say I agree with it happening, I said I could see it happening) Obviously, political correctness has gone way too far into fantasy land. Common sense has left the building…I don’t mean with the students in question. The administration clearly lost their minds when they suspended an employee for defending Catholic faith, on a private Catholic university campus!
I can say this with authority because I went to doctor school… There exist in our world only two genders, male and female. They are both very different, yet they compliment each other. Now, I am not bragging here, but I knew that to be a fact long before I became a physician! This should not be new information for anyone in the civilized world. Remember what God told Noah in Genesis 6:19, “And of every living thing of all flesh, you shall bring two of every sort into the ark, to keep them alive with you; they shall be male and female.” I guess I need to really go out on a medical limb here and state this, “Life cannot exist without one of each gender.”
Fortunately, not all Catholic colleges bow to political correctness and the current trends of a society gone mad. Nevertheless, LMU plans to have former President Bill Clinton deliver the commencement address this year! Seems to me, an epidemic of apostasy has plagued some of our most prestigious Catholic universities these last few months… Georgetown, Notre Dame, San Francisco, just to name three.
Why have these places turned away from the teaching of the Church? I just can’t figure that one out. Well, we need to believe the Word. What Our Lord said to St. Peter in Mathew 16:18, ” I will build my Church and the powers of death shall not prevail against it.” We have voices, and we need use them. We also can vote, and this year may be one of the most important election years in history. The prevalent culture of death in our country can be defeated, but that won’t be easy. Pray hard, pray often, and pray for those opposed to our beliefs. We won’t be walked on any longer, but we need to fight with compassion and love for our enemies. Pray for the intercession of St. Michael to defend us in battle. Let your voice be heard and when you go to the ballot box make sure your vote supports life.
St. Michael the Archangel, Defend us in Battle
