Conservative Student Working to Restore Traditional Values at Saint Louis University

Conservative Student Working to Restore Traditional Values at Saint Louis University

“I hope that the student body will afford me the opportunity to ‘Make SLU Catholic Again’ by voting for me when the polls open next month.”

SLU is a Catholic school, but you might not know that today. One student is working to ‘Make SLU Catholic Again.’

The College Fix reports:

‘Make SLU Catholic Again’: Embattled conservative student works to defend traditional values over ‘SLU Sluts’

Nicholas Baker, a student at Saint Louis University, a Catholic institution, recently announced his candidacy for the student government’s Vice President of Diversity and Inclusion.

Baker is not the traditional candidate for a role that typically attracts left-leaning progressives.

But Baker, who also serves as president of SLU’s College Republicans, said he is fed up with the direction in which his institution is headed.

“As things stand, SLU is accepting of virtually everyone except for traditional Catholics and conservatives. They’ve gone so far as to allow a group of two thousand students to organize under the name ‘SLU Sluts,’” Baker told The College Fix in a statement Tuesday.

“I hope that the student body will afford me the opportunity to ‘Make SLU Catholic Again’ by voting for me when the polls open next month.”

Saint Louis University officials recently handed down an “inappropriate conduct” sanction against Baker’s College Republicans for posting a video on its Instagram page last fall on the topic: “What is a woman?” The video also called out “SLU Sluts” for “actively making threats against our members,” Baker said at the time.

A Dec. 7 memo obtained by The College Fix this week from SLU administration to Baker states that the GOP group has been issued a disciplinary warning for one year, effective through November 17, 2022, for the video.

A disciplinary warning is an official notification that the “behavior is objectionable and violates the University’s community standards.” Baker’s attempt to appeal the decision was denied.

As part of the punishment, the SLU College Republicans have also been tasked with helping to create “a draft proposal of a social media policy for student organizations,” which is due Feb. 24, according to the memo.

His campaign slogan is a work of genius. A sharp icepick indeed, aimed at the guts of the administration. I hope he drives it in deeply and repeatedly.

Things are getting tough when a Catholic student counts as “diversity” at a Catholic institution.
Better watch out, though. Several Catholic schools have disciplined students for promoting Catholic beliefs on gender, sexuality, marriage, etc.
I suspect many Catholic schools would throw the Pope out for being a transphobe, homophobe, or whatever is the current evil.

    I doubt Pope Francis has to worry, he is so woke himself.

    For me, Vatican II was not so horrible (even though I frequently attend the Tridentine Mass for the sheer beauty and emotional impact of the Latin ritual), but I might be becoming a sedevacantist over the Pope’s liberal stances.
