The hilarious thing about the headline of this article, “Notre Dame criticized for funding student travel to D.C. homosexual march,” is that it suggests an outpouring of criticism is going on at the University’s campus over funding five students to go to the National Equality March. Even better, I had to scan this piece twice to locate the criticism. Overall, the matter is portrayed as positive. I’ve bolded the references to the critics.
The University of Notre Dame’s Student Activities Office is facing criticism for allowing a group of five students to use student activities funds to travel to a national homosexual political demonstration that advocated for same-sex “marriage” and related issues.
…”The fact that we were university-approved was surprising but it was a wonderful surprise,” [PSA President, sophomore Jackie ] Emmanuel remarked. “The university hasn’t always been entirely receptive in the past.” She said she has felt “a slight tone of homophobia” from some areas on campus, but she expressed her belief that the student body is “generally supportive.”
…Patrick J. Reilly, President of The Cardinal Newman Society, was among the critics of the Student Activities Office’s decision to fund the students’ travel.
“Faithful Catholics will ask whether Notre Dame has learned its lesson from the scandalous commencement ceremony last spring,” he commented in a press release. “What university seeking to reassure families of its Catholic identity would pay for students to attack the family and oppose Catholic teachings on marriage?”
That’s it — apparently the CNA was unable to locate a massive amount of critics to counter the postive quotes in the rest of the piece. I smell a scandal much about nothing.
