Well, this is really not a good way to start a Monday, but the news is what it is, so I have to share it with you.
It seems that the Jesuit run College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Massachusetts has taken it upon themselves to host a Teen Pregnancy Institute with none other than Planned Parenthood.
Shocking is the only word that seems to fit this scenario, but there is more to this than meets the eye. The first is that during this full day even the college will lso condone the recognition of pro-abortion Governor Deval L. Patrick as a leader who deserves an award.
Some have said that since Holy Cross has a history of doing such things, we should not be surprised; but I do not accept that. As long as Holy Cross is describing itself as Catholic, then we who know what that means are obligated to point out the hypocrisy and take any action we can to persuade those in leadership positions to either repent of such actions or stop calling themselves Catholic.
On the college's we site we are reminded of its Catholic identity, but we do not see it in the actions of those who plan events such as the 2007 Teen Pregnancy Institute.
If you feel, as I do, that enough is enough, then I invite you to share your concerns with:
Bishop Robert J. McManus
Diocese of Worcester
49 Elm Street
Worcester, MA 01609.
