Catholic Notre Dame University Rejects Pro-Traditional Marriage Student Group

Catholic Notre Dame University Rejects Pro-Traditional Marriage Student Group

A relatively new student group at the University of Notre Dame formed to defend traditional marriage has been denied official recognition as a campus club at the Catholic institution.

The decision to reject Students for Child-Oriented Policy was made first by the Club Coordination Council, a branch of Notre Dame’s student government, then ratified recently by Margaret Hnatusko, director of the student activities office.

“In evaluating a proposal, approval is based is on several things,” Hnatusko explained in her April 30 denial letter. “We consider the general purpose of a club, uniqueness to campus, proposed activities, a clear constitution, a strong understanding of budget planning, projected membership, opportunity for membership among other things.”

“The … mission of your club closely mirrored that of other undergraduate-student clubs on campus which served the intended interests of this club,” she continued. “As such, the Club Coordination Council felt there was not a need for another similar type club. … I regret to inform you that Students for Child-Oriented Policy will not be recognized by the Student Activities Office as a university student club.”

But the decision comes after Students for Child-Oriented Policy has been embroiled in an ongoing battle at Notre Dame over the university’s apparent apathy over the battle to support traditional marriage, as well as the Catholic college’s recent and strong support for the homosexual community.

During the 2013-14 school year at Notre Dame, a gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and questioning student group called PrismND was established, hosting events on “National Coming Out Day” that encouraged students to “come out.”

It is sad to see our country turning away from God. This school is an example of how bad it is getting. It is not over yet for our Nation but each day because of Obama etc. it brings it closer.

Catholics as a group and Catholic Bishops in particular have been big supporters of the Democrat Party and liberal agendas. Now a lot of that is coming back to bite thm in the ass. Notre Dame and Georgetown agreed to cover religious icons when obama came to make speeches in his first term. I do not sympathize for them.
