Catholic Student Removed from Florida State University’s Student Government for Criticizing Black Lives Matter Appeals Ouster

Florida State University

A Catholic student who was removed from Florida State University’s student government for scrutinized the views of the Black Lives Matter organization is now appealing the student senate’s decision to oust him.

Last month, Jack Denton, who was president of the FSU senate and a member of the FSU class of 2021, was in a private group text message chat with the FSU Catholic Student Union when he criticized, from a Catholic perspective, the beliefs of BLM and other groups like Reclaim the Block and the ACLU, arguing that their positions were not in keeping with the Church’s teachings. His comments were later made public when a fellow student posted screenshots of his comments on social media.
