Catholic (?) College!

Four decades ago Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen recommended that his
family and friends ‘send their children to secular colleges and
universities where they will be forced to defend their faith, rather than
to Catholic ones, where their faith will be taken from them.’”
--David Gibson, ‘Catholic Colleges and Tests of
Faith’ (Wall Street Journal, 2/12/2010)

On January 31, 2010 CARA released its study of ‘Catholicism on Campus,’
admitting that ‘Catholic higher education simply cannot bear all the weight of
passing on the faith.
