Dear Brother Diamond,
First, thank you for speaking to the world about the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church...my family is relistening to a tape we made of Coast A.M. of your interview. I hope you are invited back!!!!
I would like to know what you think of someone attending Fordham Univ. in N.Y. My 22 year old son may be transferring there as a Sophomore. I e-mailed him the link to the "Jesuit" pagan "sculpture" in Canada from your site. Maybe he should read Fr. Malachi Martin's book "The Jesuits". What do you think? He does come to the traditional Mass at times, but not regularly, and does not receive the Sacraments! Please pray for him. His name is Jonah. Thanks,
Thank you for your question. First, he shouldn’t bother reading Malachi Martin’s books. Malachi Martin mixed truth with error and misled many. He said that Buddhists could be saved without the Catholic Faith and that John Paul II never uttered a heresy.
Second, our feelings about young men and women attending colleges and universities is this: normally speaking (there may be rare exceptions, of course) since the campuses of these colleges and universities are cesspools of iniquity – and living in the dorms surrounded by the pagans and non-Catholics who make mortal sin a way of life at such colleges and universities would be an almost-constant occasion of sin (with others constantly goading one to partake in such party-type activity) – it would be a tragic spiritual mistake for most young men and women to subject themselves to such a situation by living in the dorms at these colleges and universities. Almost 100% of them would fail in such an environment and fall into mortal sin, no matter how much they protest that they wouldn’t.
To preserve a person’s soul from such snares (and preserving the soul is the most important thing to be considered – Mt. 16:26), to attend such a college or university a person should either live at home and commute (that way he would be away from the mortally sinful party-lifestyle) or rent an apartment and live by himself so that he doesn’t have to live and constantly be around non-Catholics who are frequently committing mortal sins and/or encouraging him to do so (e.g. by inviting him to parties, etc.).
“Catholic” Fordham University, since it’s Catholic in name only, would be considered just like any secular/pagan university. Hence, we believe one could attend provided that one doesn’t take religion classes or live amidst the sinful surroundings, but can be separate in some way by commuting or having one’s own place away from the others.
