This article as it appeared in The Observer will illustrate what this post is about. When you advocate the killing of an unborn child by Abortion, you lose your 'right' to speak at a Catholic Institution.

A Week for the VoicelessNov 2, 2010
Elections are drawing near, and the BC Pro-Life Club’s Respect Life Week comes just in time to remind us to consider the voteless and voiceless. The Pro-Life Club made its presence on campus felt as it hosted events and demonstrations throughout the week. The annual event sparked dialogue, debate, and some controversy as Thursday’s Celebrate Life Day even drew some protestors.The week started off with events held in the quad on Monday and Wednesday. The first of these was called “Consider This: The Child in the Womb.” Students passing through the quad were met with a very moving display of images depicting the development of the child in the womb. The second exhibit consisted of an emotional display of baby shoes intended to represent the unborn lost to abortion, but was unable to be displayed due to the weather. Respect Life Week went on though, and hosted its next event later that day. BC professor Tim Muldoon gave a lecture entitled “A Cloud in the Desert: a Spirituality of Adoption” to an audience of mostly students in the O’Connell house’s main room. The professor spoke in general about the nature of adoption and its impact on the abortion debate, but he also provided specific insights stemming from his own experience with adopting his two daughters from China. His presentation began with an overview, and then lead into a statistical look at the situation of adoption in America and the world. He pointed out, “there are more parents looking to adopt than there are adoptable children”, a point that certainly lends credence to his notion of adoption as an alternative to abortion, and is certainly a statistic that any pro-lifer should arm themselves with.
As you can see, the paper The Observer doesn't really get it. They seem to think that it's alright to advocate for the free exchange of the idea of killing an unborn child. There is a lot of propaganda going on here. There is never a "friendly debate" over killing an unborn child. That's Murder, any way you cut it. I guess the attitude of the Administration is what's at play here. It would seem that when you aren't Catholic anymore, it really doesn't matter, does it?
Jesus Is Lord!
Just a quick note here...if it seems as though BC or Cof HC are getting the lions share of attention, just realize that this is just the tip of the Iceburg: 80% is under water as the Titanic found out. MUCH more to come!!
