Skip to comments.Catholic university prohibits ‘Unborn Lives Matter’ posters on campus
Posted on 10/24/2016 1:10:37 PM PDT by CedarDave
The nations largest Catholic university told a group of pro-life students that it could not display posters reading Unborn Lives Matter, lest they provoke the Black Lives Matter movement.
In a letter to the College Republicans, DePaul University president Father Dennis Holtschneider said the posters contained bigotry veiled under the cover of free speech, the Daily Wire reported.
By our nature, we are committed to developing arguments and exploring important issues that can be steeped in controversy and, oftentimes, emotion, Mr. Holtschneider said in the letter. Yet there will be times when some forms of speech challenge our grounding in Catholic and Vincentian values. When that happens, you will see us refuse to allow members of our community be subjected to bigotry that occurs under the cover of free speech.
Citing the universitys Guiding Principles on Speech and Expression, he said the poster provokes the Black Lives Matter movement and therefore needs to be redesigned.

Screw them. I was raised Catholic, the church has been NWO for many decades.
My God! “bigotry that occurs under the cover of free speech”
What craven cowards!
“You keep using the word ‘bigotry’ . . . .”
They call it bigotry———bigotry against what?
That accusation is as meaningless as racist is,both overused.
What a bunch of moral cowards.
Killing unborn babies = good.
Dissing BLM leftist thugs = bad.
Is this the message the Catholic church is promoting?
Because it sure as hell sounds like it.
"Hey, look at me! I'm all dressed up like a Catholic! Too bad I don't act like one!"
Since when is advocacy for protection of unborn life “bigotry”?
Answer: Since progressives, liberals and others with no moral compass have taken over the press, media, and executive and judicial branches of our government.
Should have included mainstream protestant and liberal Catholic congregations.
Or are the words "Lives Matter" now a registered trademark which, no matter the context, can only be used with the approval of the the BLM trademark owners?
Students and faculty should honest-to-God rise up over this. No more hand-wringing. I want to see some chess-playing, some canny gaming of the system, some Alinski-fying, some strategic push-back here.
Idiots. Cowering idiots.
Put the posters up.
Father Holtschneider is a useless clergyman. He always caves to leftists.
Years before this pro-life controversy, he canned an adjunct faculty member due to complaints from Muslim students. The faculty instructor’s crime was that he told the students that he did not want to accept an anti-Semitic leaflet that they were distributing on campus.
Holtschneider’s underlings also sabotaged an appearance by Milo on the campus earlier this year. BLM clowns invaded the gathering and De Paul security refused to remove them. After some delay De Paul canceled the event.
probably get knocked down for too many words...
The worst irony - given that blacks have a higher abortion rate than whites, many of those unborn lives ARE black, so saying unborn lives matter and changing minds means saving many black children.
instead of trying to ban them, you’d think the priest would be putting those posters UP all over his campus!!!!
truly....he’s gone off the rail (or in more modernese, he’s jumped the shark)
The Cstholic Church should demand they stop promoting themselves as a Catholic institution and alumni should stop donating. Or are they all in agreement with him??? I am not a Catholic, but this is not the Catholic Church that I remember. As a young person, I saw the movie The Cardinal. I guess he might have made a different decision these days.

Diversity = Stupid = Consent.
welcoming different viewpoints to be discussed ... is one thing,
but...forcibly-suppressing Biblical teachings on a core matter of moral teachings...is quite another thing
I sometimes think we should suppress all those ideologies that advocate the mass-murdering of innocent people...starting with abortionists and Islamics....
(but of course that thinking would violate both ‘free speech’ and ‘celebrate diversity’)
I guess the dear father hasn’t read the Psalms, has he?
