    The College Fix ^ | December 11, 2017 | Coy Westbrook, Texas A&M
    Love Saxa stands it ground It is rare to find students at modern American colleges that are fiercely committed to the traditional view of marriage as a lifelong institution involving one man and one woman.One such group of students exists at Georgetown University–a Catholic institution. Yet it was recently subjected to a barrage of criticism and activist efforts that very nearly cost it its official status as a university organization, and it continues to be targeted by opponents.This fall, Love Saxa, a student group committed to the Catholic Church’s teaching on marriage, was accused of being a “hate group” because it did...

    Georgetown, amid years of reports that its Middle East Studies were compromised by apologists for violent extremists, if not outright terrorists, has, if anything, doubled down on its approach. "Breaking news on the discipline of Middle East studies is seldom kind to Georgetown University," a report from Campus Watch notes. "In July 2017 came word that the Bridge Initiative of the Saudi-funded Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding (ACMCU) had hired former Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) national legal director Arsalan Iftikhar as a senior research fellow." "With the appointment, Bridge/ACMCU has effectively become a branch of...

    Just one day after Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the F.B.I. in the Russia investigation, reports have surfaced accusing a veteran investigator in the special probe of sending disparaging text messages regarding President Donald Trump. The investigator was removed from the probe a few months ago because of the potential of a political bias. The New York Times and The Washington Post both reported December 2 that Peter Strzok, a senior counterintelligence investigator at the F.B.I., was removed from the probe because several disparaging text messages indicated he wasn’t a fan of Trump and was possibly a Hillary...

    The Federalist ^ | 10/27/2017 | James Gottry
    Georgetown’s website proclaims it is “the oldest Catholic and Jesuit institute of higher learning in the United States” and is “deeply rooted in the Catholic faith.” One campus group is learning, however, Georgetown’s roots might not be deep enough. Love Saxa is a recognized student group on the Georgetown campus, and it exists “to promote healthy relationships on campus through cultivating a proper understanding of sex, gender, marriage, and family among Georgetown students.” Given the emphasis the Catholic Church puts on these issues (for example, see here and here), and Love Saxa’s alignment with church doctrine, one might believe it...

    After speaking at Georgetown, Muslim Brotherhood leader seeks to lobby U.S. Congress Amr Darrag, a senior member of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood, will be speaking at Georgetown University on Thursday, and he is trying to extend his speaking gig into a lobbying tour, as other Brotherhood-aligned delegations have done in the past. U.S. officials and members of Congress would be wise to decline Darrag’s requests for meetings: The Muslim Brotherhood is an international hate group that seeks to overthrow the region’s existing governments, and Washington should have no interest in allowing the Brotherhood to score a propaganda victory by giving Darrag...

    An apology from Georgetown and the Society of Jesus’ Maryland Province for their roles in the 1838 sale of 272 enslaved individuals for the university’s benefit took place today in the company of more than 100 descendants. “Today the Society of Jesus, who helped to establish Georgetown University and whose leaders enslaved and mercilessly sold your ancestors, stands before you to say that we have greatly sinned,” said Rev. Timothy Kesicki, S.J., president of the Jesuit Conference of Canada and the United States, during a morning Liturgy of Remembrance, Contrition, and Hope. “We pray with you today because we have...

    Georgetown University’s Qatar campus is set to host Sami Al-Arian for a lecture tonight in Doha. According to a news release from the school’s Middle Eastern Studies Student Association, Al-Arian is a “civil rights activist” who hopes to challenge students to “make it a better, and more equitable and peaceful world.” Those are charitable descriptions for Al-Arian, a documented member of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad’s Majlis Shura, or board of directors. According to the Islamic Jihad’s bylaws, which law enforcement agents found during searches of Al-Arian’s home and offices, there can be “No Peace without Islam.” The group’s objective is...

    Self-avowed liberal and Islamic reform activist Asra Nomani defended her support for President Donald Trump and her position on Islamic extremism in Copley Formal Lounge on Wednesday. The event, co-sponsored by the Georgetown Bipartisan Coalition and the Georgetown Review, came under scrutiny after students on social media called Nomani an Islamophobe. The Georgetown Bipartisan Coalition and The Georgetown Review both defended their decision to invite Nomani ahead of the event. The Georgetown Review said in an editorial posted Tuesday evening that Nomani has the right to voice her opinions. “While the arguments associating Ms. Nomani with the ‘soft Islamophobia of...

    Nonie Darwish grew up as a Muslim girl in Egypt and wants to tell American university students what Sharia law is really like. A lot of them don’t care to hear about it and don’t even think Darwish should have the freedom of speech to tell her side of the story — including some of the Georgetown University College Republicans (GUCR) who invited her to speak at their academy Tuesday night. According to Campus Reform, her presentation at Georgetown University this week prompted a torrent of angry student voices who called Darwish’s condemnation of Sharia law “hate speech.” The lecture...

    It seems many in progressive media are too PC to call out a Musim professor even when he's advocating rape and slavery? Two things: This comes from the account of Umar Lee, a Muslim student who was offended by how far Jonathan Brown went in defending slavery and rape. In the era of the campus trigger warning, rape culture and renaming buildings named after slave owners, Brown offered a spirited defense of slavery and rape.

    Slavery and rape aren’t wrong when Muslims do it. "I don’t think it’s morally evil to own somebody." "A male owner of a female slave has the right to sexual access to her.” These views don’t come from an ISIS underground bunker, but out of the brilliantly lit halls of Georgetown University where rape and slavery are defended by an Islamic studies professor. ... defending actual slavery and rape is still okay at Georgetown. So long as it’s committed by Muslims under the license of the Koran. "I don’t think it’s morally evil to own somebody,” Jonathan Brown explained ......

    We know that most Professors seem to be Liberals, so we are used to hearing what they teach. However, the following crosses the line in so many ways. We need to know what our college students are being taught. I made the statement today to my husband: “We are in so much trouble in our society right now, but think about what it will be like when the next generation takes over.” In saying that, I want to explain myself. The effect we will be seeing when the next generation takes over is what this generation has taught them. The...

    A professor at Georgetown University is teaching his students that men do not need consent to have sex with women, and that slavery is justifiable under Islamic teachings. Islamic Studies professor Jonathan Brown recently lectured at the International Institute of Islamic Thought, where he shared his alarming beliefs with students in attendance in his lecture, “Islam and the Problem of Slavery.” Freelance writer Umar Lee expressed his shock over the 90-minute lecture, which included explicit endorsements of rape and slavery.

    An attorney with the Internal Revenue Service’s professional standards office in Washington has been charged with conspiring to distribute 500 grams or more of methamphetamine, U.S. prosecutors said. Jack Vitayanon, 41, an IRS attorney since 2012 allegedly participated in a meth ring with others in Arizona and on Long Island between about September 2014 and January, according to a criminal complaint unsealed in Brooklyn federal court Wednesday. Public records show Vitayanon living in the U Street corridor. In the criminal complaint, prosecutors noted that during one alleged transaction, Vitayanon directed a buyer to make a cash deposit of $1,650 to...

    William Peter Blatty, best-selling author and Academy Award-winning screenwriter of The Exorcist, died Thursday at the age of 89 after battling a form of blood cancer. But his final work is still underway: a petition to the Vatican, seeking the enforcement of canon law to reform Georgetown University’s Catholic identity, is still in front of the Church’s highest court. Although Bill Blatty is appreciated widely for his writing talent, great humor and one of the scariest movies ever made, we should also remember him as a faithful Catholic and a passionate advocate for Catholic education. In many of his works, Blatty...

    Submitted by Joseph Jankowski via PlanetFreeWill.com Georgetown Professor Michael Eric Dyson is proposing the idea that white people should have an ‘Individual Reparations Account’ to make donations to black institutions and individuals. The idea is part of his forthcoming book, “Tears We Cannot Stop: A Sermon to White America.” Dyson made the argument during an interview with Ana Marie Cox in the January 8 edition of the New York Times Magazine. From the interview: At the end of your sermon, you do a “benediction” section, in which you talk about making reparations on the local and individual level: donating to...

    A Georgetown University associate professor had a month-long meltdown after a Muslim woman explained why she voted for President-elect Donald Trump. Asra Q. Nomani, a former Georgetown journalism professor and Wall Street Journal reporter, wrote an op-ed in The Washington Post Nov. 10 explaining why she, as a Muslim woman and “long-time liberal,” voted for Trump. “I support the Democratic Party’s position on abortion, same-sex marriage and climate change,” Nomani wrote. “But I am a single mother who can’t afford health insurance under Obamacare.” C. Christine Fair, a previously “friendly colleague,” went on a 31-day screed against Nomani spanning across...

    The District of Columbia’s most prestigious neighborhood used tax money to commission a work of art honoring Hillary Clinton. The artwork, titled “Red, White, and Hillary Blue Diamonds,” consists of five aluminum frames illuminated by LED lights. The diamond-shaped structures are installed in three locations, where they serve “as gateways into Georgetown.” The installations are “dedicated to former Senator Hillary Clinton, who is the beacon of dignity and guiding light, as a thank you for her strength as we move forward,” according to a placard next to the art.
