An Exorcism For Georgetown?

Arguably that wouldn't be a bad idea.  However, another sort of remedy is in the works.  William Peter Blatty, author of "The Exorcist" and 1950 alum of Georgetown, is filing canonical suit under the auspices of The Father King Society.  They are joining forces with the Cardinal Newman Society in this venture.

In Blatty's words, the basis of the suit is Georgetown's "failure for more than two decades to comply with the requirements of Ex corde Ecclesiae".  Apparently in 1991, canonical law proceedings were enough to make then Dean of Student Affairs Fr DeGoia rescind support and funding for a pro-abortion advocacy group on campus.

Blatty also urges all alumni to suspend any donations to Georgetown.  I echo that call.
