LMU hosts Hindu fakir (honest!)

Loyola Marymount U. has hit a trifecta, only it is a bizarrely and spectacularly bad one. Not one of these three things should happen in this or any Archdiocese. Will Cardinal Mahony denounce them or punish them? (This is a rhetorical question.)

First, LMU, as we have heard, is having pro-abortion L.A. mayor An-phony-o Villaraigosa give its commencement address on May 6.

Second, LMU's Presidential Donors, as we have also heard, are promoting a reception and showing of the blasphemous, anti-Catholic new movie, "The Da Vinci Code," at Sony Pictures.

And third, which we have not heard until now, LMU tonight and last night was hosting appearances by, as LMU calls him, "His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankar." LMU also calls him a "Hindu leader and humanitarian" and "a gifted exponent of the ancient Hindu scriptures."

Last night (Friday), Shankar was to employ "dialogue, meditation and music." Tickets for that one set you back $15 (bleachers), $25 (general) or $100 (VIP).

Tonight, Shankar was to hold a "Leading into the Light" workshop, LMU says, "to further address a person's spiritual needs." This one was $50 for students and $100 for the public.

LMU, have you forgotten? Jesus Christ tells us in John 8:12, " I am the Light of the World. He who follows Me does not walk in the darkness but will have the light of life."

Imagine what great St. Francis Xavier, Apostle of India and one of the first seven Jesuits, would say about this travesty. Let us make reparation for it.

Mr. Oberon:

You are stuck in the sixties. There's no going back to Woodstock.

Dear Oberon,

As Christ Himself tells us, and as St. Paul tells us, too, the most important thing is love.

It is not love to give haven and equal standing to error. It is not love to let Christ's beloved children be led astray by error.

Love is what the dissenters congratulate themselves on having, even as they angrily and falsely attack faithful Catholics and pro-lifers as being "unloving."

Dear Anonymous 9:47 a.m.,

Thanks for your post! And it is good that we cannot go back to the Sixties and Woodstock, because so much of them was about big sins and the opposite of love -- the occult, hedonism, self-absorption.
