  • I love the architecture that is at usd
  • the dorms are haunted like no joke the ghosts are preeety lit
  • While Clermont may not like the school embracing gays and lesbians, I certainly do. Bravo, USD, for not allowing religion to cloud your judgement. And shame on you, Clermont, for saying that "anti-gay values" are the teachings of Christ. I suggest you actually read the darn book before you begin to paraphrase it.
  • On Thursday, the first full day in office for San Diego’s new Catholic bishop, the Catholic University of San Diego (USD) hosted a “drag show” that the Vatican last year described as “scandalous.” Attorney Charles LiMandri, who founded Alumni for a Catholic USD and helped file a petition to the Vatican against the University’s annual cross-dressing event, spoke with The Cardinal Newman Society to discuss why USD is continuing to ignore the Vatican and even the recent words of Pope Francis.Last year, the Vatican’s Congregation for Catholic Education responded to the petition submitted by LiMandri and Thomas McKenna, founder and president of Catholic Action for Faith and Family. The Congregation’s letter deemed the drag show a “scandal” and declared its intentions “to act through administrative channels to the competent ecclesiastical authority in San Diego.” Whether under the guise of diversity or not, there is no excuse for a Catholic college to ignore the Vatican, LiMandri explained: People that supposedly share our beliefs are grossly misrepresenting them and are getting a free pass. Even after they’ve been told by the highest authority [in the Catholic Church] that what they’re doing is scandalous—which in Church parlance has specific meaning—that you are leading people away from the faith, it is causing a potential loss of faith. The people who are in a position to represent the faith are giving a bad example. In this case it is not just a bad example, but it is a fraudulent message. They’re misrepresenting what the Church teaches, and you can’t get away with that under the guise of diversity. Pope Francis addressed gender theory in his Wednesday audience this week, the day before the USD drag show: As we all know, sexual difference is present in so many forms of life, in the long scale of the living. However, only in man and in woman does it bear in itself the image and likeness of God… Man and woman are [the] image and likeness of God! … Modern and contemporary culture has opened new areas, new freedoms and new depths for the enrichment of the understanding of this difference. However, it has also introduced many doubts and much skepticism. For instance, I wonder, for example, if the so-called gender theory is not also an expression of a frustration and of a resignation, which aims to cancel the sexual difference because it no longer knows how to address it. Yes, we risk taking a step backward. The removal of the difference, in fact, is the problem, not the solution. To resolve their problems of relation, man and woman must instead talk more to one another, listen more to one another, know one another more, love one another more. LiMandri hopes that USD might be a better example to these colleges. “My goal and desire in a very personal way is to see USD come back into the fold like the prodigal son,” he said. “I love USD. I want to see USD be the best that she can be, that’s what is motivating me. I want to see USD get back on track, in line with the vision of its founders and what they profess in their mission statement.” “These are good students who are being deprived of a good Catholic education,” he added. “When we get the word out and Catholics rally, good things can and do result.” Until the University once again embraces the teachings of Christ, this gets one star.
