Patrick Anthony Bergquist and J. Patrick Hornbeck II
were married Saturday in Manhattan.
Hornbeck is Chairman of Fordham Theology Dept.
The wedding announcement was in the NYT's wedding section - so chic.
So anyway, Deacon Kandra News posted the announcement - which is where I found it. Public information is not gossip, right?
I would maybe overlook this news item, knowing there will probably be a lot of these marriages taking place, which is going to be problematic for Catholic institutions - or will it? However, I think it's important to take note of.
Why this is important.
The man is Chairman of the Theology Dept. at Fordham, that's why.
Dr. Hornbeck, 33, is the chairman of the theology department and an associate professor of medieval and reformation history at Fordham University in the Bronx. He graduated from Georgetown and received a doctoral degree in theology from Oxford University. - NYTSo Catholics are appalled and surprised and shocked that SCOTUS judges legalized same sex marriage. How is that? How can you be surprised? Catholic education has been quietly prepping for this for decades.
The kids are alright?
The kids whose parents sent them to Catholic school turn out to be very pro-marriage-equality, and very accepting of homosexuality as normal. How can that be? The kids went to the best Catholic schools all their lives - including the very best Catholic universities. How can it be?
The kids become priests, teachers, theologians, religious ed. directors, chancery workers, lawyers, politicians, judges, columnists, writers, activists, and so on. The contagion spreads like that.
Now, some Catholic bloggers online want the SCOTUS judges to be excommunicated. You know that's not going to happen.
I think people online are losing it - like a generalized nervous breakdown is occurring.
Watch out who you read and follow - in fact, don't follow anyone online.
