GW students campaign to remove priest
George Washington University students are mobilizing to remove a priest.
The movement surrounds two gay seniors who said they felt alienated by the Newman Center's controversial priest. The students say they will launch a campaign to force him off campus.
At least a dozen students, including seniors Damian Legacy and Blake Bergen, say they have left the Newman Center in the last several years because Father Greg Shaffer’s strong anti-gay and anti-abortion views are too polarizing. Shaffer, a Roman Catholic priest, has spent five years preaching to GW students.
