Part 19 of my ongoing survey of the follies of many modern day Jesuits.  Jesuit university Fordham disabuses Catholics deluded enough to believe that liberal Catholics have not, by and large, fully embraced the zeitgeist of the secular left:

The New York Times, which wrote up a glowing report of the couple’s marriage, described Hornbeck, as “the chairman of the theology department and an associate professor of medieval and reformation history at Fordham University.”

The article somehow failed to mention that the only course he actually taught last semester was titled “Christianity & Sexual Diversity.”

One wonders how Fordham expects its Catholic theology to be “taught in a manner faithful to Scripture, Tradition, and the Church’s Magisterium,” as required by Catholic discipline, when the head of the department stands in open opposition to the Church’s teaching on marriage.

The wedding ceremony took place just days before the Episcopal Church in America voted to allow same-sex marriage rites in its churches, effectively sacramentalizing sodomy.

Fordham in turn has defended Hornbeck’s “constitutional right to marriage,” saying that his lifestyle choice is irrelevant to his role as a teacher of Catholic Theology.

“While Catholic teachings do not support same-sex marriage, we wish Professor Hornbeck and his spouse a rich life filled with many blessings on the occasion of their wedding in the Episcopal Church,” said Bob Howe, Fordham’s senior director of communications.

“Professor Hornbeck is a member of the Fordham community, and like all University employees, students and alumni, is entitled to human dignity without regard to race, creed, gender, and sexual orientation,” he said.

Howe stressed that same-sex unions are “now the law of the land, and Professor Hornbeck has the same constitutional right to marriage as all Americans.”

Go here to Breitbart to read the rest.  As I have often noted, a de facto schism has existed within the Church for decades, as incidents like the above clearly demonstrate, and the overwhelming majority of Jesuits are on the side of those who have nothing but complete contempt for Catholic teaching that does not mouth the latest leftist platitudes.

  1. Breaking News:

    President Evo Morales has given Pope Francis some politically loaded presents during the traditional exchange of gifts between heads of state.
    Chief among them: “A crucifix carved into a wooden hammer and sickle”, the Communist symbol uniting labor and peasants. The image also appears on a medallion Morales gave to Francis that he wore around his neck.

    I wonder what changes Papa Frank has for his vision of a New World Economic Order……………

  2. I didn’t know that belonging to a Catholic religious order was a suicide pact. Where are the few remaining devout Jesuits?

  3. Wake up, people. S.J. stands for “Society of Judas.” They share Judas’ primacy of the secular, the here-and-now, and the organized brigandage (totalitarian state and socialism) for which they betray and subvert Christ’s religion.
