Speaker at (Catholic) Carlow University Tells Students to Crucify Whiteness

“the University welcomes respectful discourse and multiple perspectives, including being open to hosting speakers like Dr. De La Torre whose topic may engender thoughtful reflection and dialogue”

Why are so many Catholic schools so determined to give a platform to the radical left?

Campus Reform reports:

Catholic university speaker urges students to “crucify whiteness”

A speaker event at Carlow University in Pennsylvania urged students to “crucify whiteness,” embrace “hopelessness,” and “ethically lie” to cover historical wrongs.

As reported by The College Fix, “Reject White Supremecy” was delivered virtually on Mar. 3 by Iliff School of Theology social ethics and Latinx studies professor Miguel De La Torre. It was sponsored by Carlow’s Atkins Center for Ethics.

In the speech, De La Torre criticized evangelicals who voted for President Donald Trump.

“When eight out of ten white evangelicals voted for a person who is completely against everything Christianity stands for, I don’t know what Christianity they are practicing,” he said.

Additionally, he argued that the word white doesn’t always reference skin color, but rather is an “ontological concept.”

“Those of us who are colored, some of us can also be white,” he said. “But the good news is there is salvation.”

De La Torre noted that he is not a theologian, and is more concerned about focusing on “dealing with what’s going on than trying to figure out theology.”

Carlow University is a private Catholic institution in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, and was founded by the Sisters of Mercy.

Carlow University Public Relations and Communications Manager Sean McFarland defended the event to Campus Reform, stating that “Carlow University is proud of our Catholic heritage and mercy mission, which welcomes all.”

“As such, the University welcomes respectful discourse and multiple perspectives, including being open to hosting speakers like Dr. De La Torre whose topic may engender thoughtful reflection and dialogue,” he said. “The viewpoints of lecturers should not be taken as either an endorsement or opposition of how the University feels about a particular issue.”

“social ethics and Latinx studies”

You get what you pay for. No one could be surprised to get racist garbage from someone with a title like this.

Speaking on another ocassion, De La Torre said, “For white Christians to get saved they must reject the white god they’ve been following and instead bend their knees to the black god, to the Asian American god, to the queer god.”

He says, “True salvation can only occur through the crucifixion of whiteness. White America has historically shed the blood of darker bodies so it might have life and life more abundantly. But it was not washed clean by that blood! Salvation, for its own souls and for the nation, can only occur through the crucifixion of whiteness, nailing to the cross privilege arising from hue,”

    So how many whites have to be nailed to the cross? Or will cross marriage make everyone a light Tan, fixing the problem?

      The answer is spray paint. A good graffitti artist could take care of the problem before the police show up.

How many whites digitally or physically, walked out of this lecture?

What is with the Catholic church these days? Are they all bonkers?

I can almost swear I read the story here last month.

As long as we’re going biblical, how about if I offer 30 pieces of silver to the first guy to give De La Torre a bloody nose?

So… from the title…. Whiteness is Jesus?

I just feel an urge to take the analogy on to it’s conclusion – crucify whiteness and bury it in darkenss only to have it rise again days later, stronger than ever, sending disciples of whiteness out across the globe, gathering a following so numerous that it cannot be stopped… I don’t think that’s where Miguel had in mind though….

So to be genuinely Christian in De La Torre’s view is to reject being White, embrace hopeless, and ‘ethically lie’?

De La Torre admits he’s no theologian, but it appears he’s also ignorant about Christianity too. Christianity is about Truth and hope, there is also no place for racism or rejecting Whites.
