Georgetown U. employees lead drive for same-sex marriage

Employees at Georgetown, America’s oldest Catholic university, have been instrumental in founding a new organization that will seek to rally support for same-sex marriage on the campuses of Catholic institutions.

“’Catholics for Equality’ represents outright rebellion—‘mutiny’ in the words of one of the group’s founders—in opposition to the U.S. bishops and Catholic doctrine,” charged Patrick Reilly, the president of the Cardinal Newman Society, in a letter to Georgetown’s President John DiGioia. Reilly called for action to ensure that faculty and employees at the Jesuit school would not be involved in the dissidents' effort.
