Catholic Institution Told Not To Teach Homosexuality Is A Sin-- The Rounding Up of Christians By Homosexual Thought Police Continues
A Catholic academic institution in Ohio has come under fire for having a class in which homosexuality is declared a "deviant behavior" alongside things like murder, rape, drug use, and prostitution.
Franciscan University of Steubenville came under fire from a homosexual alumnus who was researching a story and stumbled upon the course description for Social Work 314. SWK 314 is a course that focuses on deviant behavior, stating that behaviors to be "primarily examined" would include "murder, rape, robbery, prostitution, homosexuality, mental illness, and drug use."
Steubenville Threatened With Lose of Accreditation
The national agency which grants accreditation to social work courses is questioning Franciscan University of Steubenville over a course which lists homosexuality as a deviant behavior.
In a written statement to LifeSiteNews, the university explains that the course uses the term "deviant" as used in the sociological sense, to mean "different from the norm." In addition, the university stated, "Franciscan University follows Catholic Church teaching in regard to homosexuality and treats homosexual persons with 'respect, compassion, and sensitivity' (Catechism of the Catholic Church, No. 2358) while holding homosexual acts as 'intrinsically disordered.' "
According to Lfesitenews:
Stephen Holloway, director of the school's accrediting agency, Council on Social Work Education, in an interview with NPR (National Public Radio), stated the inclusion of homosexuality as a deviant behavior in the description "raises a red flag".
According to Holloway, the course description on which the press release and 'Franciscan Gay Alumni & Allies' complaint was based, could not jeopardize the university's accreditation. It is the content of the course, whether it complies with the standards of diversity set out in the accreditation guidelines that is considered during the process of accreditation. The university, said Holloway, is in compliance as long as the university "teaches respect for 'gay' people and includes content about 'gay' lifestyles.
