Catholic university won't recognize K of C because it admits only Catholics

The forces of aggressive secularism and political correctness have scored another victory over Christianity. This in the Excited States of America, where freedom of religion and freedom of association are guaranteed by the Bill of Rights. This in... wait for it... a so-called "Catholic" university.

The institution in question is Gonzaga University, in Spokane, which is run by the Jesuits. (Hello, Pope Bergoglio!) According to Catholic Education Daily, the university has denied an application by some students to have their Knights of Columbus group recognized as an official student organization. The reason? Because they admit only Catholics!

The Knights were told that they could not be formally affiliated with the university because their rules for membership are "inconsistent with the policy and practice of student organization recognition at Gonzaga University, as well as the University’s commitment to non-discrimination based on certain characteristics, one of which is religion."

To make matters worse, the Knights is for men only. The applicants thought they had that covered by proposing the formation of a Catholic Daughters group, but that didn't get them around the "Catholic" university's commitment to diversity, inclusivity and all the other politically correct bullshit that even the Jesuits feel bound to put ahead of any commitment they might have to their religion.

Walt is waiting for Gonzaga University to be renamed. Something like "The Mohammed Luther Hebrew Institute of Secular Humanism" would fit nicely.
