William Peter Blatty Leading Canon Lawsuit Against Georgetown

The author of "The Exorcist" has had enough, apparently. From the Cardinal Newman Society: 

"Georgetown University alumni, students and others are preparing a canon law suit to be filed with the Archdiocese of Washington and the Vatican, seeking remedies “up to and including the possible removal or suspension of top-ranked Georgetown’s right to call itself Catholic or Jesuit in its fundraising and representations to applicants.”

The effort is being led by the distinguished Georgetown alumnus William Peter Blatty, who won an Academy Award for his screenplay and book The Exorcist and has been honored by Georgetown with its John Carroll Medal for alumni achievement."

h/t to Joseph at Good Jesuit, Bad Jesuit, who includes the cool picture from the movie.

He should also call for Cardinal Wuerl to step down.

The buck for all the outrages going on in his diocese stops with him.
