Are Catholic Universities Moving Away from Traditional Church Teachings?

Colleges and universities are intended to be incubators of ideas, innovation and debate, but some Catholic universities have taken that notion to questionable levels by celebrating speakers who support policies that go against biblical teachings.

On the campuses of prestigious Catholic universities across America school officials regularly push ideas in direct conflict with the church.

For example, in an effort to promote the free exchange of ideas Georgetown University invited Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards to speak to students.

Instead of an “exchange of ideas” students heard an hour long lecture from Richards’ perspective.

“Inviting her was seen as an endorsement of her organization’s mission,” Georgetown student Justine Warden said.

In response, pro-life students at Georgetown invited Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood clinic director turned pro-life advocate, to give the other side of the story.

“I think even religious universities have really succumbed to the liberal mindset out there that abortion is helping women and that we don’t need to judge that choice, we need to be supportive of women whenever they are considering an abortion,” Johnson told CBN News.
