William Peter Blatty, a devoted Georgetown alumnus best known as the author of The Exorcist book and screenplay, is leading the charge—along with other concerned alumni—to restore faithful Catholic Identity at Georgetown University and put an end to years of persistent scandal at this once hallowed institution.
Their canon law appeal has now reached Rome for the Vatican’s response on Georgetown’s standing as a Catholic institution.
The petition is asking for the university to either live up to its Catholic mission or to relinquish its claim to be Catholic.
Show the Vatican that YOU support Blatty’s and his fellow alumni’s effort to restore Catholic identity at Georgetown by clicking the button below. Together we need to make clear that we are heartbroken and frustrated over the secularization of the nation’s oldest Catholic university. Your support will demonstrate that Catholics are aware, active and serious about maintaining the Catholic integrity in our institutions of higher learning across the country.
