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
Other colleges have
similar "Rainbow Alliance Week" programming events, such as
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

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

time organizing for radical homosexual agenda items, such as homosexual
"marriage" and legitimizing and promoting homosexuality.
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.
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
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
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."
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.
