LMU is a Catholic school in the way Joe Biden is a practicing Catholic or Judas Iscariot was a faithful disciple. In other words, not at all
Well, the Financial Literacy Workshop for Students seems a little out of place and a little too late….
Since “Latinx” is less than 20 years old and didn’t gain popularity until more recently, there isn’t much heritage to celebrate. Let’s celebrate Mexican, Latin American, Hispanic and other true cultures who have heritages, not some recently made up wokism. Check with your Latino friends. You’ll find very few who prefer “Latinx.” What would Saint Ignatx think of this? Loyola is from the Basque for the muddy place. Maybe LMU stands for Loyolx Muddled Universidad, I mean, Universibirthingperson.
That is why they used the Latina/o/x/e Heritage Month.
So if I am referring to you I say “Me made a comment” or Me’s comment is mine?”
You/Me? are correct. Dominating group think works that way. Your thoughts should be mine. Or, what’s wrong with you? Are you a flat earther who thinks there are only two genders?
is the entire student body gay at LMU ???
That’s ridiculous. Of course only 68 percent are, just like Hollywood actors and the general population.
A bunch of blind mice.
Or lost sheep.
This is the No Small Dreams New Story Non Profit Org
This lecture will examine how lived religion is shaped by the particular context of the U.S. Latinx borderlands. The borderlands, a heterotopic space, provides the context for the creation of devotion to saints that is itself heterotopic. These saints, sometimes called pseudo-saints, are seen as transgressive and problematic for Roman Catholic orthodoxy as well as the Mexican state yet they attract great loyalty and devotion from their followers. How do we understand the devotion to these heterotopic and transgressive saints like Santa Muerte in the context of the borderlands, a location that only amplifies the realities of life marked by impoverishment due to the lack of basic civil (human) rights such as safety, healthcare, employment, housing, food? Is it possible that Santa Muerte, dubbed a “narco saint” by the media/state, truly does represent hope to a population that Claudio Lomnitz argues has an “increasingly tenuous relationship to the state”?

After being drowned, inundated and submerged
in pride propaganda, maybe LMU stands for “Let Me Up.”
will the school mascot be changed from the Lions
to the “Gay Caballero?”
No, Cis-gendered. Check your privilege. Caballero is sexist and using it, even typing it online, is a micro-aggression at least. James Martin will be at LMU and may be available to hear your confession, on bended knee. They might consider Caballerx.
