My Catholic Alma-Mater Has Stadium Named After Pro-Gay Marriage and Pro-Abortion Politician



“Catholic” Bill Dodd is running for a seat in the California Assembly representing the 4th District which includes Napa County where I live. Dodd switched parties in 2012, becoming a Democrat, and citing that the reason was the Republican’s stance on gay marriage: “He says the tipping point in his decision to switch parties was the debate over gay marriage and marriage equality;” (Read more here: http://www.sacbee.com/2014/04/14/6321248/endorsements-2014-krovoza-dodd.html) Just this year, he also spoke about his support for abortion: “I’ve supported women’s rights, particularly the right to choose.  I have consistently supported marriage equality and equality for everybody…It’s these kind of values that absolutely make me a Democrat and why I switched;” (Read more here: http://www.davisvanguard.org/assembly-candidate-bill-dodd-talks-to-the-vanguard) Yet, a stadium, Dodd Stadium, at my Catholic alma-mater is named after Mr. Dodd. While this took place in 2008, before many of Mr. Dodd’s anti-Catholic beliefs were fully known; it is now time for Justin- Siena High School to remove Mr. Dodd’s name from the stadium.

Taken from The Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith: “Considerations regarding Proposals to Give Legal Recognition to Unions Between Homosexual Persons.”
“If it is true that all Catholics are obliged to oppose the legal recognition of homosexual unions, Catholic politicians are obliged to do so in a particular way, in keeping with their responsibility as politicians.”
“When legislation in favor of the recognition of homosexual unions is already in force, the Catholic politician must oppose it in the ways that are possible for him and make his opposition known; it is his duty to witness to the truth.”

  1. I know of a supposedly catholic university where the president raised a rainbow flag and held a speech during gay diversity weeks! Said university now also offers courses on queer and gender studies. A fundamental problem is that very few academics dare to take a stance against this, for fear of being labelled "homophobe" or being fired. As a result, the pseudo-science of Judith Butler and her fanatic devotees pretty much dominates academic life. And I dare say that high schools are increasingly are going in that same direction, albeit in slow steps (e.g. like renaming this stadium, setting up a LGTB group etc): Young confused people are encouraged to embrace a gay or even transgender identity and to out themselves as such. Paul McHugh in an article on the danger of transgender surgeries(http://online.wsj.com/articles/paul-mchugh-transgender-surgery-isnt-the-solution-1402615120) describes this phenomenon: "Diversity" counselors in their schools, rather like cult leaders, may encourage these young people to distance themselves from their families".
    What we lack is moral leadership, people with a deep sense of integrity and who dare to take a stance in favor of morality. Spineless opportunists like the politician you mention cannot be the answer; a person of faith or common sense should never support them.

    1. I totally agree. With an increasing sense of inadequacy, because I don't know how to argue the issue, I am assisting, in my country what I despairingly think of as "homosexualization of the world".
      Being Christian, but more so, trying to be a coherent Catholic, I have no judgment to make on anyone's choice of life.....but I feel it is my duty to point out the mistakes that are made in the name of progress.
      But what scares me most, is not the refusal to see this as a moral horror, but that people can't seem to realize that it is also a very severe social horror. If the values that have held mankind together for hundreds of centuries are being shot down continuously, man will cease to exist.
      Does this not scare even those who scoff at God???? If and when they take over the world with their perversion, what "fun" can there be if there is no one to submit to their perversion?
      I repeat.......I am afraid......and I am afraid of "lukewarm" Catholics above all.
