A Georgetown Suggestion

I found this on GetReligion and was so tickled I thought I’d pass it along here:

what would happen if leaders of the kicked-off-campus Georgetown University chapter of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship applied to the leadership of the Jesuit school for permission to hold a public forum this week in which students and faculty would be asked to read and then peacefully discuss the text of Pope Benedict XVI’s actual speech text on faith, reason and jihad?

Perhaps the event could be held at the well-endowed Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding on the campus?

Just thinking out loud, you know. I am sure the campus administration would welcome such a request by the ousted Protestant groups to organize an ecumenical and even interfaith event focusing on the intellectual thought of a man that Georgetown must realize is in the mainstream of Catholic intellectual life.


I don’t think it’s going to happen, but it’s fun to fantasize about.

Also see my previous thoughts on the evangelical eviction from Georgetown.
