The charism of Catholic colleges

The charism of Catholic colleges

Sen. Rick Santorum was the commencement speaker at a university in Pennsylvania. He got booed and about one-eighth of the graduates walked out.

About one in every eight graduates walked out of Sunday’s commencement at Saint Joseph’s University before the keynote address by Sen. Rick Santorum, who recently infuriated gay groups and others with derogatory remarks about homosexual behavior.

St. Joseph’s University. Saint. Joseph. Catholic. Or to be more accurate, Jesuit. Anyone surprised? Actually I’m only surprised that the invitation wasn’t revoked.
