Expect more of this sort of Tolerance Persecution in the very near future:
Two gay seniors who said they felt alienated by the [GWU] Newman Center's controversial priest will launch a campaign this week to force him off campus.
At least a dozen students, including seniors Damian Legacy and Blake Bergen, say they have left the Newman Center in the last several years because Father Greg Shaffer’s strong anti-gay and anti-abortion views are too polarizing. Shaffer, a Roman Catholic priest, has spent five years preaching to GW students.
The line of attack will be something like this: RC dogma is divisive, polarizing, and alienating to those who must suffer under the Church's disapproving gaze. Since we are a tolerant community that welcomes diversity, the Church must be silenced so that we can all feel comfortable with who we choose to be. No one should be allowed to think, speak, or act in any way that makes anyone uncomfortable. . .except, of course, it's OK for us to make RC's uncomfortable b/c they disagree with us. . .b/c they're all bigots, or something.
And pay special attention to this bit of the story:
And while Legacy said he is now more comfortable with both his sexuality and his religion, and has since become an ordained priest in the Old Catholic Church in October, he said he doesn’t want anyone else seeking Shaffer’s counseling to feel that same torment._____________
