(FamilyConservationPAC.com) – The gender studies program at the University of Notre Dame is sponsoring a discussion with the author of the book “Queer Holiness.”
The event, dubbed “Queer Holiness,” is scheduled for March 23rd and will include Charles Bell, the author of the book. Its theme will be “the gift of LGBTQI individuals to the church,” and Bell will speak at it.
The description begins, “For millennia, institutional churches have instructed LGBTQI persons what God expects them to be and how to act,” and continues, “among portions of the church, LGBTQI people remain the focus of hostile questioning.”
According to a synopsis of the book,
“The theological record is one in which LGBTQI people are far too often objectified and their lives perceived as the property of others, from prohibitions on who they might love or marry, to erasure and denial.”
The description adds, “On no other important religious subject are ‘theological’ arguments presented that so obviously reject overwhelming scientific and empirical knowledge about the human individual.”
“This book aims to find a better method to do theology,” it continues. “What does human flourishing look like? Is a subject that is addressed by this book, which draws on scientific research as well as personal accounts.”
Dr. Charles Bell has “based in his work as both an Anglican priest and a practicing psychiatrist,” according to the event description.
Are gay rights and religion incompatible?
Not according to Charlie Bell, this week's podcast guest.

Meanwhile, the American Civil Liberties Union and the University of Notre Dame Law School collaborated to hold an event last semester dubbed “Transgender Public Interest Litigation” at the law school (ACLU).
Anya Marino, a clinical instructor who identifies as a woman but is a man, spoke at the event. Following his biography, Marino “teaches at Harvard Law School’s LGBTQ+ Advocacy Clinic” and “remains the only openly transgender woman of color to hold any senior legal position within the ACLU’s federation of national and affiliate offices.”
Although the University of Notre Dame is a Catholic institution, a student there claimed that others who have “no regard” for the faith had undermined the school’s Christian identity.
“I thought Notre Dame was the top Catholic university in the nation when I arrived here. I soon learned that leftists who have little respect for Catholic theology have contaminated the administration,” the student remarked.
The student said, “The demographics of the student body are increasingly indicative of that sad fact, as 2/3 of our student body senate just voted against a proposition to restrict porn on school wifi (as other Catholic schools do).

The student also spoke about the Catholic faith’s future at the school, telling Breitbart News that “there is a strong contingent of Catholics still fighting on our campus, but I fear their numbers will continue to dwindle in coming years as they become increasingly demoralized and silenced by progressives for holding traditional Catholic values.”
