On Wednesday, Sept. 2nd, I wrote to you about the fact that John Sweeney, of the AFL-CIO would be honored by Georgetown University Law Center. Mr. Sweeney was to be honored despite his organization’s advocacy for homosexual “marriage” and laws mandating employee insurance coverage for contraceptives.
I questioned why he would be honored and why the Archbishop did not do anything about it.
Now I know why. Because the Archbishop joined in the post-honor celebration!
According to the AFL-CIO Blog:
It’s rare for a major university like Georgetown to grant honorary degrees. But rare are individuals like AFL-CIO President John Sweeney. Last night in a formal robe and gown ceremony followed by a celebration with Archbishop Donald Wuerl in Georgetown’s elegant Riggs Library, Georgetown University President John DeGioia conferred upon Sweeney the degree, Doctor of Laws, honoris causa.
I guess the Archbishop's request that Catholic universities do not honor those who go against our Catholic teaching was put on the side for the moment.
No wonder why the Archbishop was silent.
For shame Archbishop Wuerl, for shame!
