Turning Point USA is more Catholic than Saint Mary’s University.
Saint Mary’s College, a Catholic college in Indiana, won’t allow a Turning Point USA chapter to form because of the national chapter’s belief in only two sexes.
Turning Point USA holds the same belief as the Catholic Church. From The College Fix (the outlet identifies it as a university, but it is, in fact, St. Mary’s College):
Two administrators told student Claire Bettag that the “style and content of Turning Point USA’s messaging around LGBTQ+ issues do not align with the mission and values of Saint Mary’s” in an email reviewed by The College Fix.
Dean of Students Gloria Jenkins and Vice President of Enrollment Lori Johnson referenced an archive of stories where TPUSA reported on LGBT issues, such as men competing in women’s sports. Jenkins and Johnson also pointed to shirts sold by the national conservative group that it considered “anti-trans” because it states that “Real Men Aren’t Women.”
Other examples included comments made by CEO Charlie Kirk about men competing in women’s sports and criticizing transgenderism. Jenkins and Johnson also made mention of “other articles focusing on race and partisan politics that also point to the inconsistencies between stated claims and values of the organization and its founder and how they actually present themselves in reality.”
