Evil Protestants – Georgetown U. Ejects Private Ministry Groups
Guess what, Georgetown University is a Jesuit Catholic School
Protestant groups that have been ministering to Georgetown University students on campus for years say they are stunned that the Catholic university has decided to eject outside ministries from campus, a decision that affects only Protestant organizations.
Georgetown’s Protestant chaplaincy, part of the office of Campus Ministry, told the six outside Protestant groups Aug. 17 that they would no longer be allowed to reserve rooms for weekly meetings, use Georgetown’s name or organize on campus without an invitation from a student. Between 100 and 300 students are active in the groups, which include Chi Alpha Christian Fellowship and InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, national organizations.
Um, what part of a Catholic school do you not understand? I hope for equal opportunity they have likewise banned Moslem religious groups. And Anamist, and Zorastian. And guess what, most of the students are Catholic
Protestant students make up about a fifth of the student body at Georgetown
[OK, they could be Zorastarian, Jewish, etc, but the reality check says over half are Catholic]
Seriously there are not enough details here, but I expect that won’t stop some from denouncing the Jesuit Institution of Georgetown University for being Catholic. Really, if this wan’t in DC, it would not be a story.
Disclaimer: I was brought up in the Presbyterian (USA) tradition. I’m a Calvinist, sort of/certainly not a Catholic, nor a Baptist. A college roommate is now a Jesuit, and I respect that decision.
