Comments on: Cardinal Newman Society calls for Georgetown to rescind AFL-CIO President John Sweeney’s honorary degree http://blog.georgetownvoice.com/2009/08/26/cardinal-newman-society-calls-for-georgetown-to-rescind-afl-cio-president-john-sweeneys-honorary-degree/ Mon, 09 Nov 2015 02:04:23 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.10 By: Butch Servoss http://blog.georgetownvoice.com/2009/08/26/cardinal-newman-society-calls-for-georgetown-to-rescind-afl-cio-president-john-sweeneys-honorary-degree/comment-page-1/#comment-430066 Tue, 29 Dec 2009 08:19:20 +0000 http://blog.georgetownvoice.com/?p=8947#comment-430066 There are 164 professed Catholics in the legislative branch of our government. They are the largest religious group by far in the congress and senate. It seems to me that the Church should be putting pressure on them to rescind these immoral laws and either live up to their Catholic heritage or renounce their membership to the Church. The hypocrisy of proclaiming your religious beliefs and then voting in favor of abortion and the acceptance of homosexuality as an acceptable “alternative life style” is a slap in the face of every Bible believing Christian, and a dark mark on the membership of the Catholic Church. If they are going to vote like immoral pagans, then they have no right to call themselves Christians.

I think that CNS does this just so that people still realize that it exists. If it runs out of manufactured controversies to promulgate, it loses its legitimacy.

I don’t agree with them, but I can understand them criticizing the head of, say, Planned Parenthood or GLAAD. However the AFL-CIO is not an organization really concerned with abortion, gay marriage or other topics the Cardinal Newman Society opposes. I agree with Ryan there, this is getting fairly predictable.

I thought Catholicism was just about who and under what conditions it is wrong to bone down. You mean there’s more?

The Society’s press releases must be starting to look like Vox’s Monday Mad-Libs: “We strongly urge Georgetown to uphold its Catholic mission and rescind the [honor/invitation] to [Name of Liberal Figure].” Don’t they have something better to do with their time?
