Add these schools to the growing “Catholic-institutions-who-forfeit-their-souls-in-order-to-gain-the-whole-world” list:

  • Georgetown University
    CNS News reveals Legal Momentum, together with the Georgetown Journal of Gender and Law, honored VP Joe Biden with the Legal Momentum Hero Award April 23 in honor of the 15th anniversary of the Violence Against Women Act.
    Biden remarked, “You know there is no excuse for violence against a woman or child. There is no excuse.”
    Legal Momentum’s Altagracia Levat offered, “We don’t consider abortion violence, but we have always been pro-choice.”

  • St. Joseph’s University of Philadelphia

    This college announced in March that avowed Roman Catholic political commentator Chris Matthews, a vocal proponent of abortion, will offer the 2009 Commencement address and receive an honorary doctorate in communications on May 16.

  • Xavier University
    The Times-Picayune reports:

    Archbishop Alfred Hughes has told Xavier University he will not attend its graduation ceremonies next month because he objects to the university’s decision to award an honorary degree to Donna Brazile, the veteran Democratic political strategist who supports abortion rights…
    Brazile, a Catholic… is a familiar advocate on behalf of Democratic issues, working… [to] support…Democratic values that include defense of abortion rights and pursuit of ESCR.

    Scandalous enough. However:

    Three years ago, Xavier awarded an honorary degree to President Barack Obama, then an IL senator and rising Democratic star with a record for supporting abortion rights, without objection from Hughes.
    But archdiocesan spokeswoman Sarah Comiskey said Hughes had not been aware of the honor to Obama…

    What part of “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” do they not understand?
