The University of Toronto has distanced itself from a controversial program dubbed “Courage” that is described as an anonymous support group to help young adults struggling to resist homosexual urges recently launched at the Catholic parish based on the school’s main campus.
“The Newman Courage group is a spiritual support group for young adults who experience same-sex attractions and who desire to live chastely, in accordance with Catholic teaching,” reads the centre’s website. A pamphlet lists the five goals of Courage, including fostering a spirit of fellowship to help “ensure that no one will have to face problems of homosexuality alone.”
Note that the support group is not compelling anyone to do anything. In contrast, in a spirit of openness, tolerance and free enquiry, Toronto’s bastion of higher learning has concluded, for no particular reason other than liberal bigotry, that a homosexual who does not wish to act on his urges should be denied any assistance in living in his freely chosen manner: compulsory homosexuality.
