The Christendom Advocacy and Support Coalition is now an “initiative” of something called Dinah’s Voice.
WHAT WE DO
Empowering students and holding Catholic institutions to a higher standard
Dinah’s Voice is a student-focused, survivor-driven organization whose mission is to raise awareness about sexual assault on Catholic high school and college campuses and ensure accountability from academic administrators. We firmly believe in St. Pope John Paul II’s teachings on Theology of the Body and in maintaining the dignity of all human persons.
How did the CASC get to be part of it this?
Dinah’s Voice is currently in the process of expanding our executive board & advisory council.

Of course. It’s just exactly the same people. Christendom is too small. They can’t get as much attention if they only focus on that.
Incidentally, I’m reading SJWs Always Double Down by Vox Day. SJWs are not, as he points out, particularly competent people and are therefore drawn towards jobs where they don’t actually have to do anything worth while. This means that HR departments, anything volunteer based, and non-profits tend to be the most converged:
The fact that most open source contributors are unpaid and the projects don’t need to make any money in order to accomplish their objectives is the primary reason that open source has been so rapidly converged in comparison with for-profit corporations. It is also why the absolute breeding ground for SJWs is in the not-for-profit organizations.
Social justice is not profitable, but advocating for social justice most certainly can be. And for the individual of limited talents beyond a capacity for expressing outrage, it is arguably the most profitable profession there is.
The Coalition Voice has probably got as far as they can with one school. Christendom only has a lousy 19 victims (allegedly). That’s not enough. A wider net allows for find more violations of the narrative. They need more outrage.
And the outrage won’t be stopping any time soon. If anyone thought that should Christendom cave on the Title IX issue that the Coalition would be satisfied, consider current goings on at Franciscan University. From the National Catholic Heretic:
Franciscan University also accepts federal money in the form of loans and grants and is therefore required to follow Department of Education statutes including Title IX, the federal law that mandates procedures for handling complaints of sexual discrimination, harassment or violence.
On its website, Franciscan University outlines its anti-sexual harassment policies in detail: “Franciscan prohibits conduct which constitutes sexual misconduct such as sexual harassment, sexual assault and other forms of sexual violence, dating violence, domestic violence and stalking. …”
Since 2015, the university has required each student and staff member to watch a 53-minute video about Title IX and the Violence Against Women Act of 1994.
That is the official line, but as current and former students share stories among themselves, they find anecdotal evidence that suggests the university’s official commitment to preventing sexual assault and harassment may not measure up in practice.
Mary, a current graduate student, told NCR that over the course of a year, she and a number of other women had multiple complaints about a man in their department who asked “intimately personal questions,” demonstrated pestering behavior and hugged women despite repeated and firm requests to stop the touching. Mary said her supervisor requested written documentation of negative interactions.
Mary and other women submitted a written complaint to John Pizzuti, director of Campus Safety and Compliance, and to Pergi, the school’s human resources vice president in charge of Title IX. Neither Pizzuti nor Pergi asked to speak with the women, but one month later, they received a formal response from Pizzuti, stating that the university would be taking no further action.
“I have determined that there is no reasonable cause to believe that the University’s Policy on Discrimination, Harassment, and Sexual Misconduct may have been violated by [name redacted] at this time,” said the letter, a copy of which was shown to NCR.
But that’s not all. There a good number of alleged rape cases where the students were “revictimized” by the school. Title IX is only the first step. No matter how it’s implemented it won’t be good enough.
Given that this new organization is the same people and that they’re SJWs, there isn’t going to be any real difference between the two. As Vox says:
SJWs tend to utilize the exact same tactics over and over again, and even repeat the very same arguments, no matter with whom they are arguing or what the subject is. They like to pose as if they are intelligent and well-educated, and they often possess academic credentials of one sort or another, but they are observably incompetent as well as dishonest and intentionally deceptive.
The Nonsense Coalition might morph to the Nonsense’s Voice but the nonsense part isn’t going to change.
