Blowhard Bill Donohue is going to blow an aneurysm

Bill Donohue
In addition to having a fit over the Washington Post quoting precisely what the pope said, Bill Donohue of the Catholic League is being victimized yet again. Donohue is seriously pissed off at H.R.5265 which requires transparency on Title IX wavers. According to Blowhard Bill it is “INTIMIDATING RELIGIOUS COLLEGES.” Donohue's titles are always all caps and by that he means Catholic Colleges. It's a safe bet that Donohue doesn't give a rat's ass about Oral Roberts University. By the way, Blowhard Bill, the great Defender of the Faith happens to be a divorced man.
The assault on religious liberty, in the name of LGBT rights, is at the heart of a bill recently introduced by Rep. Katherine Clark of Massachusetts. She wants to force all religious institutions of higher education to post on their website, and at a prominent place on their campus, statements granting them an exemption from Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972.

Initially, Title IX was meant to stop discrimination against women, but now it is a weapon in the LGBT arsenal to sexually engineer American society. Their goal is to force all institutions into ratifying their agenda.

Rep. Clark’s bill does not seek to repeal the many secular exemptions to Title IX: it says nothing about the exemptions afforded the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, fraternities and sororities, military academies, and the like. Her cherry picking amounts to religious profiling and religious discrimination; it also creates a chilling effect on free speech.
What Donohue doesn't want to draw attention to is the fact that these colleges and universities inhale Title IV federal student financial aid like someone gulping for air after being submerged for five minutes. Without taxpayer assistance these school cannot exist. “Chilling effect on free speech?” Give me a fucking break.

Furthermore the goal is for everyone to be treated fairly and equally. The shame list is here. It is important to note that some of the larger name brands like Boston College, Fordham ,Georgetown, Marquette, Notre Dame, St. John's and others don't think think that they require a waiver. Franciscan University of Steubenville does. So does John Paul the Great Catholic University in California. Imagine the burden of some poor cheerleader at that one. To date, 46 schools have the waiver while 26 are pending. The boards of these 72 schools feel that they have a necessity to discriminate against LGBT students. Keep in mind that these include people who realize their sexual orientation subsequent to their enrollment.
