MIT chaplain forced to resign after citing George Floyd’s rap sheet to students

Although the priest argued for forgiveness, the message was lost on students

The Archdiocese of Boston forced Daniel Moloney to resign from his chaplain role at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology after students and alumni complained that Moloney brought up George Floyd’s past criminal history in an email to students.

Although Moloney, a Catholic priest, was making an argument that Floyd’s past should not justify his death, the fact that he brought up Floyd’s rap sheet at all prompted some to protest the chaplain’s message to campus officials and file bias complaints over it.

“George Floyd was killed by a police officer, and shouldn’t have been,” Moloney wrote in his June 7 email to the Tech Catholic Community, a group of Catholic students on campus.

“He had not lived a virtuous life. He was convicted of several crimes, including armed robbery, which he seems to have committed to feed his drug habit. And he was high on drugs at the time of his arrest. But we do not kill such people. He committed sins, but we root for sinners to change their lives and convert to the Gospel,” the priest wrote.

“ … In the wake of George Floyd’s death, most people in the country have framed this as an act of racism. I don’t think we know that. Many people have claimed that racism is major problem in police forces. I don’t think we know that.”

And some leftists are actually over in another thread arguing that the Republican Party is now a cult.

Here are rabid leftists ruining careers and lives over what is not even a contradictory opinion.  

"George Floyd was killed by a police officer, and shouldn’t have been,” just isn't enough for leftists.  You have to ignore his entire history.  You have to pretend he was a law abiding saint minding his own business.  You have to ignore that had he not been high on illegal drugs and had not trying to spend counterfeit currency that he would not have been killed, period.

Brave new world of hive mind.

I thought MIT students would've been smarter than this.

Intelligence and wisdom are two completely separate things, as you can see all around the country these days.

Specially when you are a marxist using this as a means to tear down American institutions that are considered above reproach.

What did he say that was untrue?   This is part of the problem,  if truth doesn't fit a narrative then not only is it ignored, it's punished.
