Just another Catholic University that leans waaaay left. My daughter went there her freshman year (she transferred) and my husband attended Marquette so I feel a personal connection to the college. It has gone on way too long that Catholics turn away or just accept the liberal part of the church that is so out there and so wrong on so much. The far left has hijacked the church and turned it into the church of global warming and social justice. Those who are conservative and want to stick to the more right-leaning arm of the church need to step up to the plate and speak out.
Marquette’s Gender and Sexuality Resource Center was set up as a sop to the campus gay lobby in the wake of Marquette’s refusal to hire aggressively lesbian Arts & Sciences dean candidate Jodi O’Brien. Not surprisingly, it has consistently pursued a leftist secular agenda including, for example, the Femsex Seminar, which was so raunchy and so opposed to Marquette’s supposed “Catholic mission” that the Administration ordered that sponsorship be withdrawn.
But now we have yet another case of the extreme leftist agenda of the organization. An entry from its Facebook page:
Yes, it’s a mural, in the offices of the Center, celebrating one Assata Shakur.
Cop killer Assata Shakur, formerly known as Joanne Chesimard, murdered New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster in 1973 and then fled to Cuba.
Assata Shakur, a.k.a. Joanne Chesimard is a former(?) Black Panther and Black Liberation Army agitator and cop killer. She has been a fugitive from justice for nearly 40 years and openly thumbs her nose at her victim’s family while living in Cuba as a political asylee. In 1973, Chesimard shot and killed New Jersey state trooper Werner Foerster execution-style during a traffic stop. She is currently hiding from US authorities in Cuba.
