Black Mass
'Profanation de l'hostie lors d'une messe noire' sourced from Wikimedia Commons

Harvard is a private Ivy League research university in Cambridge, Massachusetts. It is one of the most prestigious academic institutions in the world.

For this reason, it is safe to assume that if a group of it's students organised a public burning of the Qur'an, the University would readily denounce the burning and disassociate itself from such a spectacle. It is also safe to assume that if a group of its students organised a homophobic or racist rally, or a demonstration encouraging female genital mutilation or other misogynist sentiments, the University would again denounce it and disassociate itself from such an event. Perhaps, it would even take measures to prevent these from taking place.

Why, then, would Harvard defend its students' rights to freedom of speech and association when they planned to "reenact" a Black Mass - the ultimate affront to the beliefs and traditions of Catholic adherents?

It is alleged that the Black Mass did not go ahead in the end. If this is so, its cancellation had nothing to do with the University's position on the event, but perhaps it should have had.

Should Harvard have cancelled the Black Mass, or the "reenactment" of it, as organised by its students?

A 'Black Mass' is something NOT to be tolerated ANYWHERE!

There's enough EVIL in the world as it is, without 'conjuring up' more!

The POWER of evil can NEVER be underestimated.

It's just mind-boggling that Harvard would even THINK this to be ok in any way, shape or form.

Bad, Bad, Bad idea in more ways than one!
I can not believe I am reading this!!
Quite shocking, and YES they should cancel anything to do with the dark side.
