Is anybody surprised?

Yet another Catholic college provides a speaking platform for a pro-abortion politician. This time it’s Loyola University Chicago bringing in Howard Dean for a speech. “Yeeargh!!!”

  • I know it’s a bit off subject…but ewtn’s fall schedule shows 6 weeks of programs on forming the catholic voter’s conscience…..maybe they could work that into some of the religion courses at Loyola?

  • And Loyola is run by which OrderATA[

    Speaking of Dean, has anyone seen the (and I hope Dom doesn’t yell at me for changing the topic a bit) site that’s been going around the ‘net for awhile now? It’s a parody of The Land Is My Land at [url=http://www.jibjab.com]http://www.jibjab.com[/url]  It pokes fun at both candidates, but Dean gets his own special stage time that sums up his legacy.

  • Whenever something like this comes out, one always hears from that school’s defenders that “so many *good* things are happing there!  Don’t judge LU by some-of-this-stuff-that-the-university-has-NO-control-over!”  Sorry, but that is the face that Loyola chooses to show to the world.  Does one hear pr about all the orthodox and faithful stuff that’s going on?  Have they invited Crd. Ratzinger(sp?) to speak lately (or ever?)  The Loyola that the world gets to see is strictly dissenting.

  • My best buddy’s son is there. I e-mailed him asking if he was going to Dean’s talk. His reply: “Mr. Mac, it will be the shortest talk in LU history. What can Dean say other than” Hi. I’m Howard Dean and I’m a loser”.

  • Domenico, I think you got this one wrong. I think Dean should speak at Loyola, Georgetown, Gonzaga and every other Catholic school in need of a shot of spine. Now hear me out, bud. Don’t ban me.

    All Dean needs to do is talk about the New Testament book of Job, describe his Damascene episode about the bike path, and explain his Biblically-based vote for gay unions. And then end his speech in his patented way. If that doesn’t scare the people there into orthodoxy … well, the Lord Himself would throw up his hands. And it’s not as if there is no precedent for a widely-publicized Dean speech to lead to implosion.

  • No, Victor, after that rant they’d give him a spot on the theology faculty. After all, it’s probably not all that different from what the rest of the theology department is teaching already.

  • In LUC’s defense, maybe the appearance is being billed as performance art.

    I’d actually buy that excuse.  And it’s waaaaaay more entertaining than the Vagina Monologues.

  • I e-mailed Dr. Facione to express my shock at Dean’s invitation to speak.  I got a canned response about the need of a university to educate by presenting all points of view, blah, blah, blah.

    I wrote back that the Jesuit Order is now known for dissent—a real fall from it’s origin as a defender of the Faith.
