Gay Disc. Fight At Notre Dame

nd_logo-2.jpg
Catholic university Notre Dame has found itself at a cross road.

The student senate’s currently debating whether or not to include sexual orientation in their anti-discrimination regulations, as fellow Catholics Georgetown and King College have done. While some of the Senators want to embrace equality, others are pondering liability. Said one student:

I don’t think that the University is actually is going to be sued for actively discriminating against people, but I think people can use loopholes and use things given to them to make cases out of things that were not the issue. It’s unfortunate, it’s the way the American legal system works, but it’s true, and it can happen.

Ah, so it isn’t the gay people, but our litigious society. Quite an argument.

Another student, however, thinks Notre Dame has an obligation to send a positive, inclusive message: “[We must] we get the attention of the administration, get the attention of the Church, so people in higher positions than we are can realize that this is an issue we care about.” Now that’s the fighting spirit we know and love!

      “Ah, so it isn’t the gay people, but our litigious society”

      yeah, that’s BS. But it probably doesn’t help when we have a former DNC staffer crying “gay discrimination” because he was expected to perform the tasks and duties he was assigned rather than the things he wanted to do. (not understanding the difference between a JOB and a FELLOWSHIP GRANT)
