    Thank you, Bishop Martino for standing up for the teachings of Christ. Remember that He stands beside you. God bless you. Now, can you do something to help the bishop of the Notre Dame diocese?

    Thank God for the Bishop. I'm tired of Colleges trying to sell themselves off as 'Catholic' then dismiss the very teachings of the Church. You can't have it both ways and Thank goodness the Holy Bishop is standing up to them!

    Way to go Bishop. Hopefully we'll see the same thing happen at Notre Dame if they don't repent of their wickedness.

    "... Just because the University invited a gay rights activist to speak doesn't mean they support him." This sounds so much like Obama's prolife stance. Get real!

    There are plenty of platforms available for this kind of discussion already. It's called MSM. WHY should a Catholic college feels complel to do this is beyond my imagination!

    Thanks for remaining faithful to the teachings, Bishop Martino. God bless you.

    I thankfully, and was glad on touching the most really happening things among our mist, I've being telling and preaching to the people, on how God talk to us in the Bible, about good and bad. However, for this issue of homosexuality it has become daily food within us and it not a thing that gives joy to the Lord. Please let's join hands and talk more for our people to reconciel and be renewal. I am applying for priesthood, and I know God will dwell on me thanks.

    I agree with Bishop Martino. This is the time when Catholic teaching as laid down by Jesus and interpreted by the true Church should be upheld. I salute Bishop Martino for being so bold to defend the truth just like Jesus in the Gospels.

    My continued prayers for Bishop Martino and all men and women who speak up for the Church and Christ's teachings.

    I respect Bishop Martino for holding up Catholic doctrine on the matter, but I must disagree with him. Just because the University invited a gay rights activist to speak doesn't mean they support him. It's just a way of providing different opinions. If students walk out of there with only one opinion on everything, how much do you think they will succeed? True, the University should have provided the Catholic doctrine for students as well, but it should not be critized for just hosting Boykin.
    I do not think the critizism of Misericordia has been done professionally. In any case, The Diversity Institute should not be dissolved simply because of one mistake.

    Brilliant article about an individual who is a caring member of the Church. Now if we could persuade Canadian and American Bishops to get off the fence and actually take steps to deny pro-abortion/pro-choice members of the Catholic Church permission to receive the Body and Blood of Christ
    Sincerely yours
