The Rev. John O’Malley, S.J., doesn’t claim to know how the sex abuse scandal in the Catholic Church will be resolved. But the Georgetown University theology professor, one of the premier Catholic intellectuals of modern times, came to Sacred Heart University Feb. 6 to offer a bird’s-eye view of how the Church found itself in crisis and how it might find its way out.
Sacred Heart University began its new “Heart Challenges Hate” series with a discussion on the psychology of hate with Michelle Loris, chair of Catholic studies, and Christina Taylor, psychology professor, in the Frank and Marissa Martire Business & Communications Center theater in late January.
No amount of hate mail or angry protesters could stop Sacred Heart University and the Rev. James Martin, S.J., from sharing a message of respect for the LGBT community.

His message: show respect and welcome LGBT people to the Church.
