  1. University of Notre Dame? Does that mean the university's admin which probably includes quite a few "brothers" and "sisters"? It doesn't seem likely it could have been made with the support of the hierarchy.

  4. Nasty anti-gay University which advocates brutal assaults on gay people. Noone will buy their lies!

  5. and these self-loathers and their allies still embrace a church that lies about lgbts as being intrinsically disordered and contributes to the culture of virulent homophobia that leads gay teens to kill themselves!

    totally disgusting!

  6. You can play for the glory of old Notre Dame, but you're still going to hell.

  7. Hey, it was a classy thing to do. Lets congratulate them on a job well done. I think the President of the school was in the video.

  8. Tom:
    Can you specify which one is the president? The president is called Rev. John Jenkins. I can't see any priest there.

    Here is a youtube video of Father Jenkins, the president of Notre Dame. Any one can identify him in the above video?

  10. My apologies. It featured the Athletic Director.

    Still, this is a good development. And should be cheered.

    We can cheer this and still disagree with Notre Dame on other issues.

  11. This is great, and it shows the evolution ND is making, along with young Catholics in America.

  12. Damn, I would "do" every single one of those nice Catholic boys on the tennis team.
