Hendershott: “The Gay Assault” on Franciscan University

Anne Hendershott, Distinguished Visiting Faculty Member at The King’s College in New York City and the author of Status Envy: The Politics of Catholic Higher Educationwrote a piece for Crisis Magazine on why the Franciscan University of Steubenville has become the target of some in the gay community.

The success that the gay community has achieved in shedding the “deviant” label has relied upon convincing the heterosexual world that homosexual behavior is perfectly normal. The recent uproar over a social work course titled “Deviant Behavior” at Franciscan University of Steubenville—which lists homosexuality as a form of deviant behavior—demonstrates just how vigilant the gay community remains in confronting anyone who might suggest that homosexual behavior could be anything but normal. It also shows how difficult it is for faithful Catholic institutions to teach students what the Church says about the nature of homosexual acts.
