Eugene Delgaudio condemns Washington College Students for Attack on Catholic Priest for Being A Catholic Priest
Eugene Delgaudio, president of Public Advocate says "It can't be said any plainer. Pro-gay students want to simply operate outside the U.S. Constitution and want a priest removed from university. It is amazing what simply rewording a headline does to things. How did we lose control of the language and when did Catholic priest become targets ?"
Todd Starnes of Fox News reports "Students Want "Anti-Gay" Priest Removed from University" the following:
Religious liberty groups are mobilizing to defend the chaplain of George Washington University's Newman Center after gay students launched an effort to have the priest fired because he preaches against homosexuality and abortion.
"It's discrimination against Catholics," said Patrick Reilly, president of the Cardinal Newman Society. "Secular colleges are fast becoming a very unsafe place for Catholics who hold true to their faith. This is a very, very sad situation."
Two gay students at George Washington told the GW Hatchet student newspaper that they want Father Greg Shaffer removed from campus over his anti-gay and anti-abortion views.
Damian Legacy and Blake Bergen said they want the university's Office for Diversity and Inclusion to investigate the priest and they are calling for the student government association to defund the Newman Center.
