NEW: Cretella Lecture at Providence College Postponed

Thursday, February 13, 2014

 

Providence College

Providence College has announced that the upcoming lecture by Dr. Michelle Cretella has been postponed.

Cretella, a certified pediatrician at the National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality whose association with beliefs that homosexuality can be reformed through therapy had upset some of the school’s faculty and student body, was scheduled to speak on Tuesday February 18. 

Statement by Providence College

Steven Maurano, Associate Vice President of Public Affairs, Community & Government Relations for Providence College, issued the following statement this afternoon. 

"The administration did not plan the Cretella lecture; it was organized by the faculty, specifically, the Philosophy Department.

Also, as an update, after discussions between faculty and students, the lecture has been postponed."

When asked to clarify, Public Affairs Specialist Chrissy Centazzo said, "The Department is looking to reschedule, not sure of the timetable though."

We wouldn't want to have a difference of opinion on a college campus now, would we?

A video has just surfaced in which the conservative "Duck Man" Phil Robertson offers more harsh comments about gays. In the video, Robertson says that Gay folks will receive the "due penalty for their perversions." He goes on to say that they are full of "murder, envy, strife, hatred. They are insolent, arrogant, god-haters. They are heartless. They are faithless. They are senseless. They are ruthless. They invent ways of doing evil."


But he is not judging them..... Remember that...LOL


Robertson is still "free" to go repeat himself on Fox News and all the other professional victim outlets that the righties are so enamored with. We all know how conservative rubes just love to play the victim card.

Sammy,

Good thing you don't judge others or make hateful, vile and nauseating remarks about other human beings.

Have a good day
