St. Junipero Serra’s statue will be missing from campus at the University of San Diego for the third school year in a row.
Critics have taken issue with Serra’s conversion of Native Americans to Catholicism.
The university won’t provide concrete details on what it will take to return the statue.
“The St. Junipero Serra statue remains in university storage,” the university told The College Fix via email on July 11. “While the leadership team has not made any decisions at this time, the building name is Saints Tekakwitha and Serra Hall, so any new installation of statues in the future will likely represent both saints.”
The university renamed Serra Hall to include St. Kateri Tekakwitha, a Native American saint.
The university told The Fix in January 2021 that there were “several construction projects going on at this time on campus” that delayed finding a new place for the statue…
The above comes from a July 18 posting in The College Fix.
Democrats are intolerant, and young Democrats are unreformably intolerant.
Have they commissioned the statue of Saint Kateri?
What say you, Bishop Bob?
I’m for Saint Junipero and the Padres, along with Saint Kateri.
I have a feeling most of the dissatisfaction about Fr. Serra was over polygamy. It usually is when non Christian religions and devout Christians fight — men wanting many wives and the more devout Christians, especially women, wanting monogamy, unless the woman wants someone else’s husband.
As Our Lady said at Fatima, “More people go to hell because of the sins of the flesh.” As I have said before, “If you want hell on earth, just give a man two wives.” We surely have a lot of hell on earth right now.
Save your tears for worthy causes. Nobody needs Serra’s statue. It can be molten to make a more useful object.
