Canada: Dozens of faculty at Catholic college upset over screening of pro-life film, “Unplanned”

College Fix:

They worry it will  hinder their efforts at recruiting ‘excellent’ students, faculty

Dozens of professors at a Canadian Catholic college are upset over the school’s screening of an anti-abortion, pro-life film, claiming that the movie may frighten top-rated students and faculty from applying to or working at the school.

The campus ministry at King’s University College in Ontario screened the film “Unplanned” earlier this month, LifeSiteNews reports. That movie depicts the story of former Planned Parenthood clinic manager Abby Johnson, who became a vocal pro-life advocate after having a conversion experience about abortion. The movie was a financial success when it was released last March.

Last week, following the screening, over 40 faculty members sent a letter to the college’s principal, David Malloy. The letter slammed the movie as a “polemical film,” one that functions as “anti-abortion propaganda that incorporates graphic and inaccurate depictions of abortion.” read more

  1. “…claiming that the movie may frighten top-rated students and faculty from applying to or working at the school.“

    So instead they will be happy to “frighten” Catholic top-rated students and faculty from applying or working at the school.

  2. these buffoons are eager to compromise their morals and principles just so they can recruit amoral and unprincipled students and teachers?

    It’s exactly this kind of bullshit inside the Catholic Church why I quit Catholicism 5 years ago and found the Southern Baptist Convention.

    “It’s exactly this kind of bullshit inside the Catholic Church why I quit Catholicism 5 years ago and found the Southern Baptist Convention.”

    With all respect, may I gently suggest you look up a website called Reformation Charlotte. There’s several articles about the SBC’s leftward slide (old news, really; Jimmy Carter didn’t happen in a vacuum) and current ties to…believe it or not…Soros.

  4. Fire the scum. Parents demand the college conform to doctrine or remove your children and money. Of note, there are no Ex-Catholics, only fallen ones.

  5. Man, there they go again messing up a good Catholic school just because they want it to conform to gospel teachings and morals!

  6. I was married to one of those good Catholic girls for 36.5 years. Fortunately for me and our 3 children and now 4 granddaughters she never became a nun. She might have made a good nun (she actually went to a convent in N. Dakota but never took her final vows) but a very naughty one in a good sense like in The Trouble With Angels which was one of her favorite movies. Her older brother almost became a Jesuit Priest but was a Seattle Police Officer for 30 years and has just recently retired. She and all her 8 other siblings went to Catholic schools and she went to Marycliff HS in Spokane, an all girls Catholic school and her brothers went to Gonzaga Prep. My father in law also taught at a Catholic school and was the Vice Principal.
