Catholic publications outraged by “transgender week” activities at Jesuit run Loyola Univ. in Chicago

University’s Trans and Allies Club, Transgender Awareness Week included everything from a Transgender Bible study to a day reserved for criss-cross dressing-encouraging students to dress in their best “gender bending outfits.” While the week itself was calm and uncontroversial on Seattle U’s campus, national Catholic organizations have taken to the Web, expressing concerns over the awareness week and its place on a religious campus. The Catholic News Agency, in a story published March 1, highlighted several Jesuit universities who have recently sponsored events described as “obscene events promoting sexual ideologies” by the news agency. Among those schools were Georgetown University, Loyola University of Chicago and Seattle University.
