Catholic priest under attack for standing by church teachings…….

| May 5, 2013

A Fr. Greg Shaffer is the chaplain of the Catholic Newman Center on campus at George Washington University in Washington, D.C. Recently a group of pro-homosexual students have band together to force Fr. Shaffer off campus because he opposes abortion and same-sex marriage. Fr. Shaffer defends these church teachings in his sermons, RCIA classes, and Bible study classes. This group of students are pressuring top university administrators to act on his forced removal. Fr. Shaffer cites freedom of religion and freedom of speech in his defense.
For more information and to support Fr. Shaffer with an electronic petition please visit the following link in this article.

Information for this article was provided by TFP Student Action Director John Ritchie through an interview.
