  What happened: -      

Certainly one of the more controversial topics is the Church's teaching on the issue of homosexuality, and Church teaching has been quite careful to respect the dignity of the individual while still cementing that the act of sodomy, especially in a homosexual relationship, is morally wrong. Despite this controversy within the Church, the College this month spent an entire week advocating for homosexuality and promoting it to the students.

Events like these confuse the students as to the true teachings of the Church, and further split the college from the Magisterium.

Certainly many students engaged in homosexual relationships at the Cross are confused and desperately in need of counseling and support, not the simple validation of their desires.

Other colleges have similar "Rainbow Alliance Week" programming events, such as this one at Wright State, and this one at St. Louis University. And at almost every other college it coincides with a popular "Coming Out Day" which encourages students to declare their homosexuality openly. For confused young students, who are often subjected to many sexual pressures and disordered nature of our culture's approach to our bodies, it is no surprise that many can confuse that frustration and confusion with "being gay" which attempts to explain every other relationship problem.

Holy Cross students need sexual sanity not rationalizations, perversion and the promotion of unhealthy lifestyles.

There are 51 student members of the Facebook group "HC Allies" who have likely never heard of homosexual counseling and the many avenues of support such as the Courage program, offered through the Church.


1. Trustees - Please call one Board of Trustee member, Fr. Philip Boroughs at Georgetown University <email, (202)687-1395> to ask them to have the college return its fidelity to Church teaching.

2. President - Please call President Fr. McFarland <mmcfarland@holycross.edu, (508)793-2525>and respectfully ask him to provide homosexual-tendency counseling to students who are engaged in unhealthy lifestyles.

3. Department - Call the Chair of the Religious Studies Department Prof. Alan J. Avery-Peck <aavery@holycross.edu or (508)793-3411> and ask if Pope John Paul II's wonderful "Theology of the Body" is assigned in any class, and if not, what alumni and supporters of the college could do to support it.

And please let us know what you hear from these individuals. You can reach us at <info@hccns.org or (508)439-5350>.

You can see that the Hogan Center was advertising and promoting "Rainbow Alliance Week" as well as prominently displaying the Human Rights Campaign's logo in the right window. The Human Rights campaign, however well named, promotes radical homosexualism and anal-centric policies that lead many young people into sexual confusion and lifestyles that put them at odds with the teachings of the Catholic Church. Its donations are almost exclusively partisan, and funding candidates whose policies are, again, at odds with important Church teachings. Lately even homosexuality is too blase for HRC, and they are now promoting "transsexualism"
This is the logo of the "Human Rights" Campaign that spends its time organizing for radical homosexual agenda items, such as homosexual "marriage" and legitimizing and promoting homosexuality.
Homosexuals often use the rainbow ostensibly to represent the "diversity" within their members. But the origins of the rainbow are a way to thumb their noses at Christians who recall that the rainbow was God's promise to man that he would never again flood the Earth, killing everyone, for its wickedness.

Excerpt from Genesis 9:8-17

God said to Noah and to his sons with him:
"See, I am now establishing my covenant with you and your descendants after you
and with every living creature that was with you: all the birds, and the various tame and wild animals that were with you and came out of the ark.
I will establish my covenant with you, that never again shall all bodily creatures be destroyed by the waters of a flood; there shall not be another flood to devastate the earth."
God added: "This is the sign that I am giving for all ages to come, of the covenant between me and you and every living creature with you:
I set my bow in the clouds to serve as a sign of the covenant between me and the earth.
When I bring clouds over the earth, and the bow appears in the clouds,
I will recall the covenant I have made between me and you and all living beings, so that the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all mortal beings.
As the bow appears in the clouds, I will see it and recall the everlasting covenant that I have established between God and all living beings--all mortal creatures that are on earth."
God told Noah: "This is the sign of the covenant I have established between me and all mortal creatures that are on earth."

God made his promise to man through the rainbow that he would never again destroy his creation. This is the real meaning of the rainbow, a meaning hijacked by radical homosexuals.
