Oh, and OP... maybe ND would be good for you. Make you meet some liberal catholics and get over your intolerable arrogance about your own position.
Why do you think I am arrogant just because I am firm in my atheism? By that same reasoning, I could call all religious people arrogant.
And I never argued that liberal Catholics don't exist. I just wanted to know how ND's Catholic affiliation affects non-Catholics, and especially atheists, who attend.
By the same reasoning you cannot call ALL religious people arrogant. But I will agree that a lot of them are. Very, very much so. But, surprisingly, I have found some atheists remarkably arrogant and intolerant.
Simple research on ND's website indicated to me that they have many programs geared towards PI, and student organizations geared towards human and civil rights. The only thing I didn't see was a LGBT organization at the law school... but they do have one on for the grad and undergrad students on their main website. But you don't really care about that, do you?
What I want to know is why you asked this question if, when people said it wasn't a big deal and even provided links for you supporting this, you still argue with them about it? By the second page you should've realized what your decision would be. You are being arrogant in that you refuse to deal with the possible minor discomfort you might experience in dealing with people who are different than you. But what I was really referring to is the fact that you are being (or at least coming off as) arrogant by continuing to argue in declarative sentences "supporting" your decision, despite evidence from several sources to the contrary, that you are right to still be concerned- as though this was somehow an argument that can be applied to anyone but you. Simply saying "Hey, I hear it won't be so bad... but I think I might be more comfortable in MN" is preferable to discussing papal infallibility and other red herrings to what is ultimately a personal
decision for you that really has nothing to do with religion, and everything to do with your comfort level. And there is nothing wrong with just saying "Hey, I am not comfortable". I don't think anyone would fault you on that.
Instead you have spent several pages talking about how you are "right" to be concerned because of this, that, and the other things that Christians and Catholics have done/positions they hold. See the difference?
