Georgetown University, America's oldest (Jesuit) Roman Catholic institution of higher learning and located in the U.S. capital of Washington, D.C., actively encouraged visitors to its website to contribute to a vast array of left-wing activist groups in the name of supporting "civil rights." A page on the website for Georgetown's law library asked visitors to give to Planned Parenthood, NARAL Pro-Choice America, the leftist attack dog Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), LGBT law group Lambda Legal, and others.
"One way to resist oppression is to strengthen the organizations that fight against oppressors. You can make a change, even if it's just an hour a week or a dollar a week. If we all give just a little, it adds up and it keeps our civil rights, our environment — our nation — from being destroyed," the page, entitled "A Brief History of Civil Rights in the United States," urged visitors.
The page listed all sorts of left-wing advocacy groups, including the SPLC, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), NARAL, Planned Parenthood, EMILY's List, and Lambda Legal. It also solicited requests for organizations users "would like to see added to this list."
Adding insult to injury, the law library website for America's oldest Catholic University gave "special thanks to jezebel.com for the genesis of this list of organizations." Even if Jezebel were not literally named after one of the Bible's most ungodly villains, the idea that Georgetown would endorse a list of groups from this far-left website is horrifying.
According to the Books of Kings in the Hebrew Bible, Jezebel incited her husband King Ahab to abandon the worship of Yahweh and encourage worship of the deities Baal and Asherah instead. Jezebel persecuted the prophets of Yahweh, and fabricated evidence of blasphemy against an innocent landowner who refused to sell his property to King Ahab, causing the landowner to be put to death. For these transgressions against the God and people of Israel, Jezebel met a gruesome death—thrown out of a window by members of her own court retinue, and the flesh of her corpse eaten by stray dogs.
In the biblical story, Jezebel became associated with false prophets. In some interpretations, her dressing in finery and putting on makeup led to the association of the use of cosmetics with "painted women" or prostitutes.
