Author of ‘The Exorcist’ William Blatty says he wants to restore Georgetown’s Catholic identity
Blatty told Arroyo:
Asked which of the events at the University was most upsetting to him, Blatty pointed to the University’s invitation to Department of Health and Human Service’s Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to be a commencement speaker last year. Said Blatty:
"Students tell us they get hooted at, ridiculed, and called stupid because of their faith…. It’s a Potemkin village," added Blatty. "This is the oldest Catholic university in America. We want them to become better, honest, and more Catholic."
