Notre Dame Denies Official Recognition to Pro-Traditional Marriage Student Group

A relatively new student group at the University of Notre Dame formed to defend traditional marriage has been denied official recognition as a campus club at the Catholic institution.

The decision to reject Students for Child-Oriented Policy was made first by the Club Coordination Council, a branch of Notre Dame’s student government, then ratified recently by Margaret Hnatusko, director of the student activities office.

“In evaluating a proposal, approval is based is on several things,” Hnatusko explained in her April 30 denial letter. “We consider the general purpose of a club, uniqueness to campus, proposed activities, a clear constitution, a strong understanding of budget planning, projected membership, opportunity for membership among other things.”

“The … mission of your club closely mirrored that of other undergraduate-student clubs on campus which served the intended interests of this club,” she continued. “As such, the Club Coordination Council felt there was not a need for another similar type club. … I regret to inform you that Students for Child-Oriented Policy will not be recognized by the Student Activities Office as a university student club.”

But the decision comes after Students for Child-Oriented Policy has been embroiled in an ongoing battle at Notre Dame over the university’s apparent apathy over the battle to support traditional marriage, as well as the Catholic college’s recent and strong support for the homosexual community.

During the 2013-14 school year at Notre Dame, a gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and questioning student group called PrismND was established, hosting events on “National Coming Out Day” that encouraged students to “come out.”

The university also established a pastoral plan “for the support and holistic development of GLBTQ and heterosexual students.” A video the university put out last month touts its homosexual athletes.

Students for Child-Oriented Policy had emerged during the start of the spring semester to stand against the university’s trend toward accepting and embracing homosexuality and gay marriage.

In March, the fledgling group launched a petition that called on administrators to “make a clear stand in support of the true definition of marriage and to take serious and sustained action to improve the public understanding of this natural institution.”

The effort met with backlash from some Notre Dame students, who launched a counter-petition.

This counter-petition not only opposed official recognition of SCOP, but also asked university officials to renounce it “unless (its members) reformulate club policy, in which childhood outcomes should not be included as a defense against marriage.”

As for the recent decision to reject Students for Child-Oriented Policy as an official campus group, university officials downplayed the issue.

Notre Dame spokesman Dennis Brown told the National Catholic Register, which first reported the news, that the club’s denial is “not unusual.”

“Over the past five years, 31 percent of club applications at the University of Notre Dame have been denied, most of those for the same reason — that they duplicated another club’s purpose, explained Brown. SCOP was one of six proposed clubs whose applications were denied this spring.”

Students for Child-Oriented Policy plan to appeal the decision, according to a comment on the group’s Facebook page.

“For now, we have been denied recognition from SAO based on a recommendation from the Club Coordination Council,” stated Timothy Bradley. “There is an appeal process and we are exploring some other avenues to reverse the decision.”

        Catholic Schools are not very Catholic. I graduated from Marquette. Nothing terribly Catholic about it. The priests and sisters were radical leftists (and this was back in the mid-90s). I don’t think much has changed. I would never send a son or daughter there, ever. I can send them to state school and they hear the same left wing dribble. The difference being, the left wingers at the Catholic school are actually more radical and aggressive. Why is that I wonder?

  • bubbler_boy

    This is a violation of free speech and religious discrimination…if I was a lawyer, I would be up there now slapping them around the court room. If you will not allow one political group, you cannot allow another…so by nature of gay rights groups being on campus, this group should be allowed too. No matter what your opinion is. My personal opinion is call the marriage by another name and give them the same rights…theology is clear on the gay issue but that is theology and not law.

  • Majolica

    And where’s the bishop in all this? You know, he has the power to forbid them to use the word “Catholic” in their description of themselves.

    Here in central Massachusetts, Bishop McManus firmly drew the line a few years ago. He told one of the schools in Worcester – I think it was Holy Cross – that if they had Planned Parenthood on their campus to participate in an event, it would lose its authorization to describe itself as “Catholic.”

    The college thumbed its nose at the bishop, had Planned Parenthood come in exactly as planned, and then our noble bishop – caved. No designation of “Catholic” was withdrawn. That’s the kind of brave episcopal oversight that’s being exerted nowadays.

    All natural birth will be outlawed by the year 2050. Only test-tube babies and same-sex marriage will be allowed. Of course Skynet computers will probably wipe out most of mankind in 2100, so maybe it doesn’t matter.

    State by state this country is going to HELL. When the traitor politicians hand this country, the once greatest country in the world, over to the vermin illegal aliens and their fat retarded anchor babies the USA is finished. Just like God gave up Rome when it was taken over by perverts and “immigrants”. You fools allowed this to happen by apathy and giving your votes away for free sxxxht rather than working for what you have with integrity and morality. You with your bong hits, video games, porn and Obama Bucks free money have let this once great country to to szzt. May you all suffer the consequences and burn in HELL.

  • Da Kong

    A university should not allow a student group whose raison d’etre is hatred. Would people feel comfortable with a student group that wears white hoods and advocates uppity minorities getting what they deserve? Would they feel comfortable with a Nazi-themed group that advocates the university dorms and classrooms be segregated along racial lines, and that Hillel house be booted off campus? Perhaps a group that issues everybody a little red book and holds events where they pillory class traitors and demand professors undertake self-criticisms while they burn religious icons and cultural treasures. If those latter examples are unacceptable, so should a group be whose purpose is to deny equal rights to any class of fellow citizens.

    • john_koenig

      Yet they allow anti-Semitic groups all the time. These Jew-hating scum hide behind empty tripe such as “anti-Zionist” and “pro-Palestinian” slogans.

      • Da Kong

        Zionism is the doctrine of resettling the Holy Land with Jews at the expense of every other group. It is the Israeli equivalent of Manifest Destiny. Opposing it is equivalent to opposing Apartheid under the White minority government in South Africa. It is possible to oppose the policy and to support the right of current occupants (Palestinians) to live in peace on land that is theirs, without hating Jews, just as it was and is possible for Black South Africans to oppose Apartheid without hating Whites. There are of course people who call themselves anti-Zionist and pro-Palestinian who hate Jews reflexively, just as there are people who call themselves pro-Israel who hate Muslims and Palestinians (the two are not synonymous) reflexively or people who call themselves Republicans who hate minorities reflexively.

    Isn’t Notre Dame supposed to be a Catholic School? Where is the local bishop when a stance in support of traditional marriage is called for? Why would a Catholic college celebrate the homosexual sin of its athletes? Everyone sins in one way or another but SUPPORTING the sin as official Catholic School policy is a sin in itself. Come on Bishop where are you?

    Universities in the U.S. have declared themselves embassies of a foreign nation. They no longer are held accountable to the United States Constitution, which guarantees free speech, freedom of religion, and equal protection under the law. Freedom of religion has been replaced with the more important concept of freedom of lust and perversion, no matter who is harmed or offended by it. University’s have thereby become pagan institutions that support the sacrifice of children through abortion, and the worship of sex, making of university women a new form of temple prostitute.

  • 7loubro_4

    How about making the club’s name more unique by just calling it SAGMAOUT=Students Against Gay Marriage and Outers?

    A Catholic university is opposed to traditional marriage? LOL!

    Right to assemble peaceably? Not in Obamaland.

    Now go pay your taxes – your government is broke. 🙂

  • Name

    I searched their web site and found no such organization that mirrored the proposed club that was turned down. However, there are a few groups that sound like ‘bible study’ or “Catholic Dogma Discussion Groups’ but no specific group seems to exist to support specifically, traditional marriage. http://sao.nd.edu/groups/categories.html

    Since traditional marriage is a subset of Catholic teaching and there are groups that support this, I don’t find any malice in the University turning down the group.

  • fairtv

    So sad. Notre Dame used to be a real university, not a propaganda machine. If Catholics give up on marriage, this country is doomed.

  • KurtLA

    You can’t legally be married without the government giving you a marriage license. You don’t need the church to be married at all Marriage is not owned or instituted by religious institutions. The church ceremonies are just shows and not legally binding. Judges can legally marry people. Internet ordained civilians can marry people. No need to mention god or Jesus to be legally married. Now do you get it?


    THIS IS THE same Notre Dame that had obama speak in front of the student body a few years ago. the topic was tolerance for others beliefs..basically , if people want to murder babies, it should be tolerated…
    the Catholic left is disgusting to say the least. this university, practices the catholic faith and values, when it is convenient for their agenda. IE social justice and amnesty for illegals.
    this same university assists groups along the southern border with so called “safe houses, for illegals , once the cross the border ILLEGALLY….

    So what was the other club already existing with a “similar mission” to the proposed Students for Child-Oriented Policy club? I am guessing there isn’t one, and the university’s claim was made to squelch the issue, in the typical “progressive” Lib-fascist manner.

    “The … mission of your club closely mirrored that of other undergraduate-student clubs on campus which served the intended interests of this club,”…quips the swashbuckling (or swishbuckling?) Notre Dame spokes person Hnatusko. Hmm…I wonder why she didn’t specify which already existing club’s mission overlaps this one? As a minimum, Notre Dame has to announce to the world that it no longer is a “Catholic Institution”. At the same time it will have to change its name. I never thought I would see this from a Midwest catholic university. Donations really need to dry up until the board of directors straighten out and understand what it means to run a Christian University in this day and age.

  • scot

    It is time for traditional Catholics to leave the Church and reestablish the Church on classic Christian bases, or else simply acquiesce to the fact that the Roman Catholic Church from the Pope down to the local Bishops is nothing more than a crass political operation that exists solely to finance the lavish lifestyle and “retirement” of the clergy. Whatever the Church needs to do to fill the coffers, it will do; obviously, as has the Democrat party, the Church leadership made the financial decision to solicit homosexual money, as well as illegal alien donations. Thus the support for those lobbies. As a Protestant Christian, while I respect many aspects of Catholic history and some of the theology, I and my congregation welcome Catholics who renounce the corrupt Church hierarchy and wish to embrace Christianity unencumbered by its decadent political and financial regime.

    • truthm0ng3r

      Catholics are a great asset to the cause for decent civilization. Are they perfect? No. Sure we disagree on things. But we have bigger fish to fry right now.

      • jimstone

        homosexual and decent don’t really go together.

      • scot

        It is time for Catholics to learn that it is OK to criticize the decadent Church hierarchy. That is hard to do because that hierarchy has for two millennia taught “obedience” to the Pope/Bishops/Priest as being equivalent to obedience to God. Nothing could be further from the truth. If indeed Catholics seek to be “an asset…for decent civilization” then you must affirmatively reject that decadence either through active protest, or voting with your feet. Otherwise, you remain part of the problem.

    If you answered (d) then you read enough comments by now to know that all three are correct as he’s been here most of the day starting early after this story was added to Drudge’s list. You should not instigate his further nonsense, however. It no doubt supports his MO and will only add to his sick reasons for getting out of bed to continue his charade. At least give him time to put on his pajamas, brush his teeth, and clean up his parent’s basement first! It will also give you time to realize that arguing with a troll is a complete waste of your resources.

  • CRO

    The growing hostility for Christians is becoming rampant. The media ignores crucifixions of Christians, beheading, stoning, rape, kidnapping of Christians in other countries and the media ignores it. At the same time here in north America and Europe they push the gay agenda to slow kill populations. And christianity is about love. The truth is, gay propaganda is genocide of Christianity and Christians by a tyrants called NWO, Bilderberg, the unelected UN, the IMF and all their tentacles.

  • InterestedObserver12

    Same-sex couples should have the same civil rights as heterosexual couples. That is a different matter than that a same-sex union is not a “marriage.” Marriage is the central rite of heterosexual culture, and for the state to redefine marriage so that there is no longer a word for the joining of the male and female constitutes cultural appropriation on a scale not seen since the Europeans invaded the western hemisphere. Those who argue otherwise misunderstand the origin of marriage. It evolved as a means by which heterosexual men could identify their progeny. The notion that marriage is an expression of romantic love is of such recent origin it has yet to be embraced by a large percentage of the world’s cultures.

    Intolerance on display. The gay agenda is not about love, sex or marriage. At it’s root, it’s about the denial of a transcendent moral lawgiver – God. That is the battle and that explains the marginalization, hostility and even outright hate against one group: Christians. Notre Dame has been lost.

    • Dunnyveg

      If it were up to me, they would begin every class with a prayer even at UCLA. The question is what the liberals would like to do to me for daring to be different?

      • SweetAzSummer

        We are all the same (“in God’s image”) and different. Gays have a difference and they are to be respected. Gay marriage is a different issue altogether because of the definition and the impact thereof on society.

        It is a very important philosophical topic which could be discussed and at least should be discussed. I don’t see why a “Defense of Marriage” group cannot be organized at ND. Quite the contrary.

        In Europe, Gender theory is not taught to the children and this from grammar school. Christians and Muslims are up in arm, but to no avail. They are called “extremists” and “far right” by the masonic left (in France both the president and the prime minister are Freemasons and they are as absolutist and fascistic as you can fear they would be).

    Loyola is not discriminating against straight or Christian people; there are clubs that emphasize family already. This group has code name for “anti-homosexual.” Or anti-GAY. Sorry, your daze of bullying are coming to an end.

    Ever since ND invited the Abortion Commander-in-Chief to speak on campus, the university has lost all credibility as a Catholic institution.

  • ivanillich

    We get it: If there is for example a jewish group on campus there should be also one with people with opposing views explaining how jews deserve the holocaust for killing Jesus.
    Poor bigots! They are being denied their freedom of expression. Maybe they should all transfer to “Liberty” U, you know the one that discourages interracial dating.

  • Jack Semen

    I think it’s simply dreadful how shamefully beautiful homosexuals are treated.

  • xsnake

    The nation’s population has always been against same sex unions……but the comrads bypass the voters…..as the did with abortion laws.

  • David Johnson

    I would guess most of the people who teach and/or attend Notre Dame must be homosexual.

  • Johannes Perlmuther

    This all began back in January 2009 with Barack Obama’s first act of pandering to his homosexual activist supporters, followed br his evolution on homosexual “marriage” and all the other odious decisions. A complete an utter disgrace from the worst president in American history. Shameless and alien.

    Notre Dame is a Roman Catholic university not a Christian university.

    • Callahan

      NO — it claims to be Roman Catholic but it clearly is a secular radical left wing university patronizing it’s powerful alumni base by pretending to still be catholic so they can get the money from all of those homophobic ,neanderthal ,misogynistic, white men .

  • Teleprompter InChief

    Why not “V”for vasillating?

  • The university sounds pretty intolerant… anyone want to bet the university would support a bestiality student group (they already have liberal arts classes for it) or NAMBLA even … anything but (insert definition of normal here).

  • Gwombo

    GOOD! Bigots have no place in any school of higher learning.
    They should be expelled, as well. Good riddance, haters and homophobes!

    • Federal League

      It’s amusing watching the Kwans celebrate their little victories when in reality liberalism is being defeated and rejected all across the globe.

      The ability to enforce the queer agenda dies with the petrodollar, and good riddance to both.

    The RCC went off the rails many years ago. This is an example.

    As it was in the days of Noah….

  • cabinboy422

    Notre Dame surrendered its integrity a long time ago. Sadly this is not surprising.

  • MekongDelta69

    In a very perverted and perverse way, I’m glad this (and tens of thousands of things like this) have kept happening since ca. 1965. The more race-baiting, gay Mafia, feminazis, muslim loving, illegal alien glorification, and a hundred other leftist causes keep getting shoved in our faces, the more people will wake the hell up and realize what has been happening to this once great country for 50 years.

    The left is relentless. Don’t ever forget that.

    According to our Dictator and his regime, there are two groups in this formerly great country:
    1.) Straight, white conservative male (and non-feminazi female) American legal citizens/vets.
    2.) Everybody who’s NOT in Group #1.

    If you are in Group #1, you are demonized for simply breathing and existing.

    If you are in Group #2, you are lionized for simply breathing and existing.

  • So once more, it is OK to shaft others with a different point of view and a higher sense of morality!

  • Porfivor Nixon

    They did the right thing in rejecting the club. That’s all that matters. They are claiming that same-sex marriage supporters are wrong when in fact, they are the ones who are evil.

  • stainless

    Nobody has more rights than anyone else. Unless you go to college? Anybody see anything wrong with that?

  • Elaine Farrell

    Alinsky declares the family unit must be destroyed, so individuals have only the gov’t to look to for establishing goals, morals & ethics. What better way to decimate the family unit than to make homosexuality the preferred lifestyle amongst “the cool” ones.
