New Boston Mayor Reportedly Wants (Catholic) Boston College to Create an LGBT Resource Center

New Boston Mayor Reportedly Wants (Catholic) Boston College to Create an LGBT Resource Center

“LGBTQ+ students at BC deserve to be fully supported during their time at the school and BC continues to fail to live up to its responsibility to do this.”

What business is it of Mayor Michelle Wu whether or not the school does this? The left never stops pushing.

Boston mayor pressures Catholic college to create LGBT center: report

The mayor of Boston wants a Catholic college in a nearby city to establish a “resource center” for people who embrace their homosexual or gender dysphoric inclinations.

Mayor Michelle Wu (pictured) reportedly joined with nine current or former city council members to demand Boston College establish an “LGBTQ+ Resource Center.”

“It is such an honor to have so many prominent officials publicly show their support for queer and trans students at BC,” the group stated on Instagram. “LGBTQ+ students at BC deserve to be fully supported during their time at the school and BC continues to fail to live up to its responsibility to do this.”

“It is time Boston College recognized the equal dignity of LGBTQ+ students and heed the calls to approve an LGBTQ+ Resource Center,” a Change.org petition circulated by a group called BC Equality stated.

The Jesuit college is located in Newton, a city outside of Boston. Several Newton city council members also signed the petition, according to campus paper The Heights.

The center “would foster a strong sense of belonging and security among Queer and Trans students” and “serve as a tangible sign of inclusion and care offered to LGBTQ+ students.”

The College Fix asked Mayor Wu’s office via email why she chose to sign the petition and if she had any concerns it would look like she was using her political power to pressure Boston College.

BC Equality student leader James Mazareas told The Fix on Instagram he would email responses to questions but has not provided answers in the past two weeks. The Fix asked for information on what services the center would provide and how its support for LGBT resources squares with the teachings of the Catholic Church.

The term “Catholic” has lost a whole lot of its meaning, especially in Catholic colleges and high schools.

I’m surprised the Jesuits haven’t already done this

The mayor should use tax money to construct a mobile LGBT center and have it towed around town to service customers as needed.

With the installation of flashing lights it could even be used to respond to 911 calls for LGBT emergencies.

As an alum, I can definitively say that BC is not in Boston, but Chestnut Hill, a part of Newton, MA.

Has Wu annexed Newton?

I would approach this as suggested by a former lawyer buddy of mine. The approach is dated, but start with a telegram that says “FU, Strong letter to follow.”

Next, she will demand that they set up an on-campus abortion center.

I’m not Catholic, and I don’t agree with many of the Catholic beliefs. But this is a Catholic college, and it’s their right to follow the Catholic teachings. That’s why private religious colleges exist. The mayor is clearly infringing on their freedom of religion.

If the college administrators have any courage (doubtful), they will send the mayor a letter telling her to stay in her own lane. They should say they are not going to set up a bureaucracy to encourage the breaking of Catholic rules and traditions, and they don’t care what the mayor thinks about Catholic traditions.
