Good News--and about time!


"After repeatedly getting criticized by conservative Catholics, and after years of pressure from the Vatican and some American bishops, Catholic colleges and universities are now shying away from politicians - especially those who, like Kennedy, Kerry, and Pelosi, support abortion rights - as commencement speakers and honorary degree recipients."

Read the whole thing.

This just means that some Catholic Colleges are finally following the directive of the USCCB set forth in "Catholics in Political Life." And they're doing that because of criticism by "conservative Catholics." Still, it's good.

I wonder who USF's 2008 commencement speaker will be?
