On September 9th, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a “stay” stopping a New York trial court from ordering Yeshiva University to approve a LGBT student group on campus; Yeshiva is an Orthodox Jewish university that seeks to adhere to the Torah.
This raises the question: How are Catholic colleges and universities dealing with the LGBT agenda?
There are approximately 230 Catholic institutions of higher education in America, and according to New Ways Ministry, a dissident Catholic group that rejects the Church’s teachings on sexuality, more than 130 have yielded, in one way or another, to LGBT demands. Here are ten examples.

Boston College

“Student Outreach and Support Services supports gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning students and their allies….”
“Horizon is a group where gay, bisexual, questioning, trans*, queer, genderqueer, and/or other male-identified students can discuss and seek support in a safe space.”
“Prism is a group where gay, lesbian, bisexual, questioning, trans*, queer, genderqueer, and/or other female-identified students can discuss and seek support in a safe space.”

“While on campus, students may elect to use a chosen name other than their legal name.”
“Georgetown University provides housing to undergraduate students without regard to, and does not discriminate against, on the basis of…gender identity or expression, genetic information….”

Holy Cross

“We strive to provide a safe and affirming community for all LGBTQIA+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, intersex, asexual/aromantic) individuals. The + is used as a wide signifier of inclusion….”
“The Chaplains’ Office and Counseling Center are excited to invite… students who identify as trans, gender non-conforming, non-binary, genderqueer, genderfluid, agender, questioning, and other members of the community to attend a weekly LGBTQIA+ support group.”

Santa Clara University

Rainbow Resource Center Mission Statement: “We advocate for those who self-identify within the wide spectrum of sexual orientations and gender identities/expressions and educate the whole program within the context of Jesuit values.”
“Students who wish to update their preferred name should click on the Student Profile tile in their eCampus record….”

Pope Francis has addressed the fiction that we can change our sex, calling it gender ideology. He has specifically said that it is “demonic.”
It would be instructive to know what the presidents of these queer-friendly Catholic colleges and universities would do if they learned that these LGBTQIA+ organizations held a forum to denounce the pope for his remarks.
None of what these Catholic schools are doing is required by law—Title IX provides for religious exemptions. It is all voluntary. This is the state of Catholic higher education in America today.
