1) I wasn't surprised to see a group of homophobic protesters outside the Superdome yesterday before @Loyola_NOLA's Commencement. What surprised and moved me was that hearing that many Loyola students told the protesters how much they loved and supported their LGBT classmates.
2) But I shouldn't have been surprised. Most students of their generation simply take for granted that LGBT people, their friends, should be treated with dignity. Moreover, Jesuit education forms young people who stand up for those on the margins or who are persecuted in any way.
3) Still, it was a moving thing to hear--from campus security, by the way, so it's not a tall tale. So thanks to those Loyola graduates who, just minutes before graduating, did one final act of social justice as students. I'm even prouder to be a part of the Loyola #Wolfpack
