Well, I Guess When You Are Promoting Intrinsic Evil*, A Little False Witness Doesn't Matter

The fact that Georgetown is even allowing this is a scandal. But not surprizing given the past track record of Georgetown. Remember, that when Obama spoke there in 2009 they covered up the "IHS" monogram at his request.
WASHINGTON, D.C., December 8, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The Catholic Archdiocese of Washington has reaffirmed the illegitimate status of Catholics for Equality, a budding homosexualist “Catholic” group that is scheduled to be hosted at a student event at Georgetown University on Wednesday evening.
The archdiocesan statement followed a statement from the Rainbow Sash Movement (RSM), another “Catholic” homosexualist group, which had claimed in a press release that D.C. Cardinal Donald Wuerl had explicitly allowed Catholics for Equality to appear at Georgetown.
“The Rainbow Sash Movement wishes to congratulate Cardinal Wuerl of the Archidocese of Washington for siding with common sense and reason” by condoning the event, stated the Rainbow Sash press release, entitled “Gay Catholics welcome Cardinal’s (sic) Wuerl’s Change of Heart on Gay Rights.”
Susan Gibbs, communications director for the Archdiocese of Washington, called the Rainbow Sash press release a “nice piece of fiction” and asserted that Catholics for Equality was not a legitimate Catholic organization.
“Putting the label ‘Catholic’ on a group doesn’t make it Catholic,” Gibbs told LifeSiteNews.com. “It’s not a Catholic organization. It was formed in opposition to Catholic teaching.”
The Rainbow Sash release had favorably contrasted Wuerl with New York Archbishop Timothy Dolan, who recently signed a message with other major religious leaders supporting true marriage. The homosexualist group called the statement, which declared marriage to be “the natural basis of the family” and “an institution fundamental to the well-being of all of society,” a promotion of “bigotry.”
But Gibbs said the D.C. archdiocese was not involved in the decision to host Catholics for Equality on the campus of Georgetown, which is under the jurisdiction of the Jesuit order. Catholics for Equality is being hosted by the school’s Republican and Democrat student groups.
Catholics for Equality is advertising the event on their website as “A Catholic family conversation on LGBT values.” The discussion is to include Washington Post columnist E.J. Dionne, Andrew Sullivan, a writer for The Atlantic and an openly gay Catholic, and Maggie Gallagher of the National Organization for Marriage.
The recently-founded Catholics for Equality is closely tied with the Human Rights Campaign, a leading homosexualist organization in America with whom at least three of the group’s founding board members are associated.
One of the founding board members, Tony Adams, is a gay ex-priest and blogger who has called Pope Benedict XVI a “childish idiot” and a closeted homosexual. Adams was recently removed from the list of board members on the group’s website.

* (added 9 Dec 2010 @ 11:26 pm) From par 2357 of the Catholic Catechism: "Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity, tradition has always declared that "homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered." They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved.
