Pro-Marriage Club Denied Official Status at Notre Dame

Posted on May 20, 2014  by  Catholic4Life   

(National Catholic Register)  -  SOUTH BEND, Ind. — A group of students at the University of Notre Dame has generated a campus-wide controversy by advocating that marriage between one woman and one man is better suited for children than same-sex “marriage.”

The group — known as Students for Child Oriented Policy (SCOP) — elicited negative letters to the campus newspaper and prompted hundreds of students to sign a petition calling upon the university not to recognize it as an official campus club.

An official in the university’s Student Affairs Office also expressed disapproval of a SCOP petition that called upon Notre Dame President Father John Jenkins and the administration to “make a clear stand” in support of traditional marriage, SCOP members said.

Against that backdrop, the University of Notre Dame’s Club Coordination Council (CCC) — a branch of the undergraduate student government — voted this spring not to approve SCOP for official club status, on the grounds that it mirrors other existing clubs on campus.
