Melanie Diodati Speaks Truth To Power
Recently Melanie Diodati, a Catholic theology grad student at Villanova University, tweeted out her disgust with the Catholic university’s public stance contrary to the Church’s teaching:
Villanova is proud to be an ally of the LGBTQ community and ashamed to be Catholic so I’m ashamed to attend here and that’s that pic.twitter.com/KkQcC6e4PW

You may recall my blogging in years past about ultrawoke Villanova theologian Katie Grimes, America’s Theological Sweetheart™. For example, though she’s white, and a Catholic theologian teaching at a Catholic university, she has written that the Catholic Church is suffused with “white supremacy,” and that the Eucharist and baptism are sacraments compromised by race hatred. She was ahead of her time! Also, she queers Thomas Aquinas. So that’s the environment that Melanie Diodati studies in.
You can imagine how well her tweet went over in her department. Now she has tweeted out some updates:
Hi everyone. I have news to share with regard to this entire situation.
A few days ago I tweeted a picture of Villanova social media actively aligning itself with the gay pride flag, and the LGBTQ community as a whole. Although as Catholics, we ought to love and respect all https://t.co/8NdCqkV9Mu

That woman has guts — and, unlike the department she’s leaving, the Catholic faith. A Catholic university theology department that makes room for Katie Grimes, but not Melanie Diodati, has shown its soul, or lack thereof. Diodati will shake the dust off of her feet, and thrive in her next school. What an inspiration she is! If you were put to the test like Melanie Diodati was, would you pass?
