USF a Paragon of Moral Relativism

A couple of days I wrote about USF's new "it's okay for students in dorms to have members of the opposite sex sleep over" policy (aka the Apparently None of the Jesuits at USF can Explain (or are willing to speak out about) Why Fornication is Wrong Policy). Here is a stellar quote from USF's Foghorn newspaper:
“I think USF is catching up with the times. It is a Jesuit University, but there are a lot of people who don’t practice those beliefs, so this is fair to the whole community. So the new change helps.”
And after following USF for the past two years I have to say that the statement above really does seem to match up with the direction the University has chosen to take (thanks Fr. Privett... I guess the first sign that things weren't going to go well for actual Catholic teachings at USF was when Fr. Privett warmly presenting former Speaker Pelosi with a gavel at graduation... honoring outspoken pro-death politicians is a huge warning sign that the teachings of the magesterium are about to be abandoned completely.).

USF wouldn't want to make anyone uncomfortable by espousing actual Catholic teachings as true. And that's why I would recommend parents think twice before sending their Catholic offspring there.

  1. Yeah, this is pretty disconcerting. I went to a secular college where this was the norm (it wasn't unusual that I would wake up to a guy sleeping in bed with my roommate). But Catholic colleges have an obligation to hold themselves up to a higher standard - a "light in the darkness".
