The nice thing about catholic universities is that they can use their influence over developing minds to reinforce the moral principles that hold society together. The bad thing is that, being run by liberal educrats, they chose instead to repress conservative thought while promoting moonbattery:
After effectively barring conservative columnist Ann Coulter from speaking on campus … the Jesuit college Fordham University welcomed infanticide and bestiality advocate Peter Singer for a panel discussion on Friday.
According to Fordham’s media relations website, Singer, a tenured Princeton bioethics professor, spoke from 4 to 6 p.m. in a panel the university promised “will provoke Christians to think about other animals in new ways.”
Singer has long lamented the societal stigma against having sex with animals.…
In addition to supporting bestiality and immediately granting equal legal rights to animals, Singer has also advocated euthanizing the mentally ill and aborting disabled infants on utilitarian grounds.
With Singer, the slippery slope of abortion is the side of a cliff. He holds that children should not be regarded as human until a month after their birth — a time period that would likely continue to expand so as to cover the terrible twos. Pretending that babies aren’t human would justify not only postpartum abortions but also even the most horrific forms of abuse.
Singer is so depraved and insane that he has even mused upon the moral benefits of ending the human race.
His appearance was excused with the usual sanctimonious bromides regarding the free exchange of ideas. However,
On Nov. 10, Fordham University’s College Republicans canceled a scheduled speech by columnist Ann Coulter, after the Jesuit university’s president, Joseph M. McShane, publicly rebuked the organization for even considering inviting Coulter.
McShame accused the popular author and columnist of having a message that is “aimed squarely at the darker side of our nature” — unlike the message that you can have sex with dogs and murder children.
The College Republicans earned a pat on the head for cringingly knuckling under to repression:
“Allow me to give credit where it is due: the leadership of the College Republicans acted quickly [to cancel the speech], took responsibility for their decisions, and expressed their regrets sincerely and eloquently,” McShane said.
They will go far in the spineless GOP.
