A Catholic university in Washington with close ties to the Vatican, aptly named Catholic University, has pressured students to postpone a screening of the Oscar-winning 2008 film Milk over concerns that the event promoted gay lifestyles.
The event flyer, seen right, advertises the screening as “kicking off LGBT awareness month with the CUA College Democrats,” with special guest Dr. John White, author of such scintillating books as Eros Defiled: The Christian and Sexual Sin. It features a rainbow flag, and also implies there will be cookies, which is more than enough reason to show up anywhere in our opinion.
University spokesperson Victor Nakas said:
“For university administrators, it called into question whether the event had changed in nature from one of education to one of advocacy. Given the confusion caused by the advertising, the Office of the Dean of Students contacted the College Democrats to postpone the event.”
Jasckson Tovar, a 19-year-old sophomore who is active in the College Democrats, is quoted saying:
“I’m still confused and still disappointed in my university that an event like this cannot go on for the reason that it says ‘LGBT awareness month.”
We’re guessing it has everything to do with the rainbow flag. Gay tolerance/awareness? Permissible. But gay pride?! What would The Pope think?
“Who am I to judge?” is what he’d think. Maybe it’s CUA takes a few pointers from their main man in the robes.
Or maybe it was the cookies all along. Students shouldn’t be consuming all that sugar.

Catholic U. can, after all, cancel anything they want at any time, for any reason, without explaining anything to anybody. It’s not like the college Democrats are on the
board or anything, I mean, let them do what free speech and their conscience dictates. I have a feeling that the gays on campus have a few other thing they could be doing that night to occupy their time.
This whole story is a blowover. Yawn.
Expecting a Catholic University to be reasonable is just insane.
Yep. The Catholic hierarchy and Catholic University definitely wants to keep all the gay sex going on there under ropes, for sure.
To a Church which has lost all credibility after numerous scandals and sexual depravity directed towards innocent children, their unwillingness to show, “Milk” has as much of an impact as Dolan begging votes for politicians that uphold hatred.
PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS
You do not want to piss off those men in such fashionable dresses in the Vatican…………
PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS
@1EqualityUSA: Assuming you are refering to Little Timmy Dolan the Archasshat of NY. Rumors continue to swirll of his being deep into a sexual abuse coverup in his previous post in Milwaukee.
This pig recently stated that the “battle over Gay marriage” in NY is not yet over, despite having overwhelming support and zero negative affect nor effect on anyone in the year plus since equality became legal in NY. For those comments alone I can not wait for the day when his alleged involvment in the raping of countless little boys comes to light and he is banished in disgrace………
Ohh…oh. PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS, That would be justice, if true. If the rumors turn out to be true, imagine how many boys will be terrified by bloated, red-faced, pinched-lipped, vein bulging, men in clericals and vestments… If there is a Hell, someone in his position of power, committing sexual abuse towards the children in his flock (or covering for others) would certainly have to answer for it. They must only live for this world. Archasshat is right.
I don’t know why every body acts like the current pope is some hero to the gay community. He is just a bit more media savvy than the rest.
@o.codone. You must have had a couple when you wrote this. “Yawn”. Really? That’s what you think of young gay college men? That they’re more interested in sex than they possibly could be in their ideals or politics? Wow, how old/bitter/jaded R U anyway? What better place to stir up some shit than in the Belly of The Beast? The Church is THE most hypocritical organization re gay/woman’s issues in existence. I’m from a Catholic family. I have one sibling. I think my parents has sex more than 2x from 1946 until my Mom went through menopause. So are they in Hell now? Am I going there too? I hope those young men make a BIG noise over this.
Heaven for bid the Roman Catholic Church do anything that might appear that it cares about LGBT Catholics. Far better that it marginalize gays and empower parents of LGBT youth to toss them out of their homes. This is totally shameful.
