Bishop John M. D'Arcy of the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend made the announcement of the move. Notre Dame has been defying his request that it not allow the diatribe, which he and others point out defies Catholic moral teaching and is offensive to the dignity of woman.
Fortunately, fewer Catholic colleges are allowing the diatribe this year -- 19, down from a peak of 32 in 2003. You can read about the situation at:
Sure is nice, isn't it, to see some Catholic bishops taking action against a presentation that opposes Catholic doctrine?
Hmmm...now, if only a certain prelate out here in ole L.A. would do the same and bounce the speakers from his "Religious Education" Congress who have compiled sordid track records of subverting Catholic doctrine.
Too much to hope for, I guess. So I hope you will take an hour or two or more and join the devoted members of Concerned Roman Catholics of America, Inc., in leafleting and picketing the "congress" again this year to let attendees know about the bad apples inside. Thank you.
