Please sign petition to Catholic university against pro-abort speaker

The Catholic Church has been and remains staunchly pro-life.

The Church’s position on abortion is that it is an “intrinsic evil,” which means no extenuating circumstance or rationale can mitigate against the intentional killing of an unborn human being a mortal sin. In the words of the Church’s Catechism:

If anything in the object of the act is morally evil, then the act is ordered toward evil; it is then an intrinsically evil act. It is never moral to intentionally choose any intrinsically evil act, regardless of the intended end (the purpose or reason for choosing the act) and regardless of the circumstances (the reasonably anticipated consequences).

But a Catholic university in Maryland, Mount St. Mary’s University, actually has invited pro-abort Mark Shriver from the Kennedy clan with deceptive Kennedyish good-looks to be its commencement speaker.

Below is a message from TFP Student Action:

Pro-life students are bewildered.

Because Mount St. Mary’s University — a Catholic institution in Emmitsburg, Maryland — has picked notorious pro-abortion promoter Mark Shriver as its commencement speaker on May 11, 2019.

But this is why Mr. Shriver is NOT a role model for students:

  • NARAL Pro-Choice Maryland gave Mark Shriver a 100% approval rating for his pro-abortion record when he served as a member of the Maryland House of Delegates.
  • In an interview with The Washington Post, Mr. Shiver said: “… I will continue to fight for a women’s right to choose [abortion] …”
  • Mr. Shriver is the CEO of Save the Children, a pro-contraception organization with ties to Planned Parenthood.

However, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) has stated that the “Catholic community and Catholic institutions should not honor those who act in defiance of our fundamental moral principles. They should not be given awards, honors or platforms which would suggest support for their actions.”

So, please:

Urge Mount St. Mary’s to drop Mark Shriver like a hot potato and replace him with a commencement speaker who loves God and fights for the right to life.

Every pro-lifer is invited to join this peaceful protest.
Sign your petition.  And share this page.
God bless you!

The petition has 10,233 signatures as of the writing of this post. The goal is 20,000 signatures.

According to Communist party insider Bella Dodd in her book “School Of Darkness” over 1200 Communist pedophiles/operatives were purposely sent into the Catholic Church to destroy it as well as thousands of innocent children.

“In the late 1920’s and 1930’s, directives were sent from Moscow to all Communist Party organizations. In order to destroy the [Roman] Catholic Church from within, party members were to be planted in seminaries and within diocesan organizations… I, myself, put some 1,200 men in [Roman] Catholic seminaries”.

“Mr. Shriver is the CEO of Save the Children”

Wrong is right, right is wrong. Unbelievable

Let the person speak. No one has to attend, but do not begin the process of censoring who can say what.

Catholicism for almost 2,000 years has followed Christ’s teachings. Why on earth would a supposedly Christian institution of higher learning permit an advocate of child murder (and that’s what it is) to address the students and try to convince them of the benefits of killing babies? Christ entered the world as a baby. Mount St. Mary’s University has obviously been taken over by the dark side.

The parents should demand a faculty change or withdraw their children.

My comment was taken down from this site because the people who run it wanted everyone to sign a petition to suppress free speech.That is just what the left tries to do when they do not agree with the speaker.Now they will take this comment down also.just shows you what these people that are in charge of this site are up to..BUT keep this in mind,You can hide these comments but you can not stop the truth from winning. have a nice day

In a certain respect this is old news. I mean Catholic universities involved in actions that could be described as anything but Catholic. According to E Michael Jones himself he was fired from Notre Dame because of his anti- abortion/ pro life views, and that was a long time ago. Then we have Georgetown university willing to cover up the name of Christ when Obama spoke there.

Long and short of it…the “Mount” has always had a reputation as a windsock. I was on the faculty years ago and saw the school stifle any support for a candidate for governor, even though his son was a student at the school, because his “politics” were not acceptable to the prevailing media. The “University” has as its first mission to expand and get more grants and $$$. It has NO moral compass

Let the idiot talk. Just not at comencement. That should be reserved for a dynamic speaker with the message of what it means to have gained the education that will serve you in the world, support your family and community and plan for the future. They don’t need to see or hear partisan idiology from any direction. The message must not be to one demographic or another or to any demographic over another. The left is the party of identity politics, set asides, favoring one group over another while demonizing the former to the latter. And theyv’e already ruined our… Read more »

Done! Frankie is making a mockery of our Church. I don’t believe in giving any of these scam artists a pass.

Now when and where have I heard this tune played before… oh YES, silly me. I hear it all the time, coming from the left, in their attempt to shut down free speech because it doesn’t comport with the things they believe. So shall I surmise that the right has decided to jump on that same tyrannical band wagon? The one that’s headed straight to hell on earth? I know not of which individual or group ran with this spectacularly stupid idea, but I will take comfort in the very high probability that in the end you will get EXACTLY… Read more »
