Open Letter To Cardinal Wuerl Regarding Georgetown University's Latest Betrayal Of The Faith

Your Eminence, on Wednesday April 20th at 2:00 pm, Georgetown University will be hosting a presentation led by Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood Federation of America.  Indeed, the Archdiocese of Washington (under your leadership) issued a statement on March 7 that rightly criticized this horrible action of Georgetown's.

Regrettably this is merely the latest of many insults to the Faith that have been proffered by Georgetown over the years.  Nearly four years ago they invited pro-abortion Kathleen Sebelius to deliver one of the commencement addresses.  In 2013 their Law School sent students to intern with National Women's Law Center, an abortion advocacy organization.  Theology professors there spout new age heresies non-stop.

We could go on and on with that list but I'm sure you don't have the time to read the entire litany of Georgetown-originated travesties.  Suffice it to say that if immediate action isn't taken, that litany will increase in length.

While it's true that Georgetown is controlled by the Society of Jesus (Jesuits), you, as the bishop of the area in which they are located, do have power and authority to take some corrective action.   Specifically, you have the ability to strip them of their affiliation with the Church.  Such actions have been taken by your fellow bishops in the past.  As recently as 2010, Bishop Thomas Olmsted stripped St. Joseph Hospital's Catholic affiliation when the hospital performed an abortion.  In 2003 and 2005, the Archbishop of New York stripped Catholic affiliation from two universities for hosting pro-abortion politicians..

In the face of very public criticism of their invitation to Richards, Georgetown University is adamantly refusing to reconsider.  Because of their disgraceful past and their ongoing disregard for the Catholic faith, we ask you, Your Eminence, to strip Georgetown University of its official affiliation with the Catholic Church.  Such a move appears necessary for the eternal salvation of all concerned; that includes the Georgetown leadership and Cecile Richards herself.

Thank you for your consideration.


  1. I am sure Cardinal Wuerl be all over this just as soon as he finishes his fusillade against "Amoris Laetitia"...

  2. Great. Let's strip Georgetown of the "Catholic" designation. Where does that leave us? That simply means that we are approving of the hijacking and theft of a Catholic university from the Church. That means that those who oppose the Church win.

    1. We're not approving of the hijacking; we're simply acknowledging the fact. Their Catholic designation lends them a veneer that they don't deserve and is an inducement for the unsuspecting to donate their dollars and worse, send their children, to that institution. They have in fact separated themselves from the Church some time ago. One thing that such stripping would do is to prevent Georgetown from "having its cake and eating it too", as it were.

  3. I will stand with anyone who wishes to protest this. At the very least we should show our resistance by praying the rosary outside while this betrayal is taking place inside - in the name of the Church. If you know of any such action, please post. Thank you for your tireless work.
