In defense of girls’ and boys’ bathrooms

September 30, 2016    
Dear Friend,
This may be our last protection against the Obama administration’s “transgender” bathroom rules!
A Virginia school district has petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court to hear its case for bathroom privacy. The federal government’s radical gender ideology agenda is being forced upon schools nationwide, including many Catholic schools and colleges, and it must be stopped.
That’s why this week The Cardinal Newman Society and severalNewman Guide colleges filed a friend of the court brief, authored by the attorneys of the First Liberty Institute, which urges the Court to take up the bathroom case.
In addition to the Newman Society, the brief was joined by John Paul the Great Catholic University, Thomas Aquinas College, Thomas More College of Liberal Arts, Wyoming Catholic College and the Ignatius Angelicum Liberal Studies Program. We were delighted to also be joined by the National Catholic Bioethics Center and religion expert Dr. Byron Johnson of Baylor University.
The brief argues that the Education Department’s “gender identity” rules under the federal Title IX law raise significant concerns that could impact the religious freedom of Catholic schools.
Also: A Catholic school in Tennessee is being sued for telling a male student he couldn’t bring a male date to a homecoming dance. See more top news in our weekly Catholic education news roundup by reporter Matt Archbold.
Thank you so much for all you do to support our important mission. May God bless you and your family!
 In Christ,

Adam Cassandra

From CMMB: How to build a bridge between what people don't have and they should have

“I think everybody has a call from God, and for me volunteering has been my call.”

Dear Friends,
Dr. David is an example of an everyday person who has committed to living an extraordinary life. While he is not wealthy, he gives freely of his skills, time and compassion.
I think everybody has a call from God, and for me volunteering has been my call. I want to build that bridge between what people don’t have and what they should have.”
In Mutomo, the community Dr. David is committed to serve, access to water is a daily challenge. Many people spend more than 2 hours every day fetching water, and more than 70% get sick because it is contaminated. Without access to basic needs like water, food, and healthcare, many children die.

“Everybody has different experiences, they come from different backgrounds and they can teach us a lot about what it means to be human and also how people go through suffering and as a physician my job is not just to give medication but to accompany people in their suffering.
People like Dr. David are on the front line of our mission, but they can’t do it without your support. Until September 30th, you gift will be matched, dollar-for-dollar.
In His grace,

President and CEO
