Book burning of Jewish books harbingered the coming of the Holocaust in Germany. It started with German students through a grassroots movement among university students.
Jews were the most powerful in universities in Germany. One can see this from the fact that Albert Einstein was a university professor in Germany before coming to America.
It is in the most liberal setting in Germany, where the most aggressive anti-Semitic grassroots movement had clear manifestation by university students.
Many Jewish intellectuals believed that education is the way to end anti-Semitism and racism.
Ironically, it is intellectualism that led Nazism, and universities were the centers where Anti-Semitic attacks experienced grassroots power among students and professors. Germans resented Jewish power in the universities….
Jews in Germany felt that they were safe in the liberal setting of the university and sought to enforce their Progressive ideas in the university setting, which served as a catalyst toward grassroots movement in support of annihilation of Jews in Germany.
Yes, it is necessary and important for Catholic universities to publicly and officially oppose gay marriage and abortion.
Catholic universities in all 50 states must remember why they exist. Franciscans and Dominicans did not create universities and run then in order to encourage gay marriage, which God hates, and abortion, which is murder of innocent babies.
It is the duty of Catholic universities to God and to the people (general duty) to publicly and officially oppose gay marriage and abortion.
When Catholic universities do not officially oppose gay marriage and abortion, publicly and officially, they are breaching their duty that they owe to God and to people as a Catholic university.
Catholic universities, like Georgetown University and Notre Dame University, are being negligent of their duty as a Catholic university to defend innocent babies’ lives, which abortion kills, and to defend the Bible institution of marriage (sacrament!) against direct violation, such as gay marriage.
When Catholic universities, like Georgetown University and Notre Dame University, are silent on the issue of gay marriage and abortion, from an official university policy standpoint, they are breaching their duty to God (which God Himself will punish) and breaching their general duty owed to people (which will degenerate the society, especially in Catholic communities).
“But For” Catholic universities, like Georgetown University and Notre Dame University, being silent officially on the issue of abortion and gay marriage, Catholic students in these universities will not become gay or engage in gay marriage and commit abortion.
Thus, silence and breach of duty is the actual cause of proliferation of abortion and gay marriage among Catholics who go to Catholic universities.
When the Holy Bible states that Jesus Christ is the Judge, and He will judge the world and everyone in it on the Last Day, it is important that Jesus Christ will use the “But For” test of causation to convict and send to eternal damnation Christian leaders who were the actual and proximate cause for proliferation of gay marriage and abortion.
Currently, Catholic universities, such as Villanova University and St. Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, are the actual cause of proliferation of gay marriage and abortion in Philadelphia among Catholics in Philadelphia.
Catholic universities in every city and every town in United States of America are breaching their duty of care of Catholic students who study at their university to teach them what the Bible is teaching them – that gay marriage and abortion are opposed to God’s Law.
Catholic universities breaching their duty of care of Catholic children who enter Catholic universities is the direct and actual cause for many Catholic students engaging in or supporting homosexuality and abortion.
God Himself will bring a legal suit against every Catholic university in America and Canada and around the world (and their leaders!) who breached their duty of special care to Catholic children who opt to go to Catholic unversities.
It is necessary for Catholic universities to appoint to leadership positions those who will support Bible position on marriage and abortion, officially in the university, and set public policy against abortion and gay marriage for Catholic universities that act in loco parentis for Catholic students.
God holds every Catholic university and its leaders liable for breach of duty, if there is no public policy and official stance against abortion and gay marriage in Catholic universities.
Jesus Christ the Judge will certainly judge in the Court of Law in Heaven.
