Re: “Catholics Schooled

I'm sorry, I'm a bit confused. Did this whole thing blow up because of that half a sentence you quoted from the president:"then we would have trouble"? Do you have the actual transcript about what was actual said, like maybe the whole sentence or the question asked or statement before it? Because frankly, it seems just out of context by itself like that and could EASILY be distorted into really anything, like saying he was against LGBTQ protections. I'm not crying foul here just yet, but the lack of a full statement is worrisome. Please provide at least a link to it.

And has anybody taken the time to even consider the position Beauchamp is in? Sure, he is in charge of the school, but he IS NOT in charge of the Catholic Church. If he attempts to add such a policy, not only could he be defrocked, but other priests at UP might be too. And defrocking has happened MANY times in recent years across the country, even as high as archbishops, for supporting same-sex marriage and/or same-sex policies in the public. Instead of demonizing this man, which while reading this article many students, including the leaders of this "movement," seem to already have, you people need to understand the position this man is in and the efforts he has taken, which have actually been important steps. And guess what will happen after he gets defrocked? A new priest comes in AKA BACK TO SQUARE ONE. If I were those students, I would thankful that, while seemingly minor and small efforts to them, Beauchamp is at least ATTEMPTING to support the LGBTQ community in as many unofficial efforts as he can, because, as I said, taking this official could ruin his career as well as many others in the process and it would also put UP right back to square one.
