Catholic Universities adopt LGBT housingIn the U.S. there are already more than 130 "gay-friendly" universities. Some of them have installed LGBT "inclusive" dormitories and apartments.
Sacred Heart University and Fairfield University in Connecticut and St. Mary's College in California are three Catholic institutions that provide a "gender-inclusive" roomate option this school year.
A news report on the topic states: "Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, Connecticut, offers a gender-inclusive housing option that consists of 'two or more students [who] mutually agree to live in a gender-inclusive, multiple-occupancy bedroom, suite or apartment.'
"Any student can opt for being matched with roommates of the opposite sex, and the college does not notify parents when students do so. The policy says that it’s 'expected and encouraged' that students notify their families about their housing assignment. ...
"The [Fairfield] Jesuit University admits that Title IX allows universities to separate men and women in housing. However, the university claims that 'a school must allow transgender students to access housing consistent with their gender identity.'"
Catholic parents should be aware that this "gender-inclusive" housing policies were introduced this year and ponder whether or not they agree with this orientation be given to their children.
