Catholic College Now Refuses to Play Gordon College

Orwell, call your office. In the name of tolerance Emmanuel College is actually refusing to permit its athletes to play a game with Gordon College athletes:

“At Emmanuel College, a Catholic school in Boston, athletic director Pam Roecker said that Emmanuel would no longer compete against Gordon sports teams after the 2014-15 academic year, according to the student newspaper The Hub,” reports the Washington Times. “‘The foundation of everything [in Emmanuel athletics] is based on fair and equitable treatment,’ said Ms. Roecker in a statement.”

The ugliness of kicking around a small island of Evangelical Christianity in a sea of decaying Catholicism and growing secularism is unspeakably cruel. Expressing your hatred of Evangelicals is not exactly in the spirit of Pope Francis, is it? They should be ashamed.
