Forwarding Controversy (tell our students "Republican party the Christian version of Taliban")

“We need to tell our students that Bush is a liar and that many in the Republican party are essentially the Christian version of the Taliban”

http://www.carrollnewsonline.com/index.php?id=135

From the John Carroll University Student Newspaper

Meetings are being held to discuss politics in the classroom after a professor apologized for an e-mail in which he vented his frustrations over the result of the presidential election.

The controversial e-mail was written by Paul Lauritzen, director of the Applied Ethics Program and professor of Religious Studies, to 32 faculty and administrators.

The e-mail, which was sent on Thursday, Nov. 4 at 10:31 a.m., somehow made it into the hands of students.

In it, Lauritzen wrote that he was “depressed beyond belief” at the result of the election. He added that he was angry, using an expletive.

He then called on colleagues to become more active in political discussion with their students.

“We need to tell our students that Bush is a liar and that many in the Republican party are essentially the Christian version of the Taliban,” he wrote.

“Bush won Ohio and much of the rest of the country because of Guns, Gays, and God,” Lauritzen wrote.

He added, “I say No Guns, No Gay Bashing, Not Your God.”

He added that faculty must organize against the war in Iraq.

“We have to abandon this studied neutrality,” Lauritzen wrote. “We have to lead by example. I ask you to join me in transforming the culture at JCU.”

At the end of the e-mail, Lauritzen urged the recipients to forward the message to others who might be interested.

The Carroll News obtained the e-mail from various students who each expressed their concern over its contents.

Senior Brian Ellis, who was one of the students who got a hold of the e-mail, met with Lauritzen.

“We’re not paying for a one-sided education,” Ellis said.

Nine days after the original e-mail, Lauritzen sent out an apology to the faculty, staff and administrator e-mail list. The same apology will be sent to all students.

“Because the language of the e-mail was intemperate, it has given great offense to many in our community, especially many Republicans,” Lauritzen wrote.

Lauritzen said that it was not his intention to insult anyone.

He also apologized to the recipients of the e-mail, saying that they could mistakenly be thought to endorse the e-mail.

“No one should draw that conclusion,” Lauritzen said.

He added, “The anger expressed in my e-mail was blameworthy, and I apologize for it.”

From last year's John Carroll Newspaper:

http://209.157.64.200/focus/f-religion/1104704/posts


In reaction to the society’s actions, Flannery said, “I think the Cardinal Newman Society is the closest organization in the Catholic Church to the Taliban. [The Cardinal Newman Society] has used harassment and terrorist tactics to shut down the president’s computer system and to do harm to my department’s office,” Flannery said.


Despite concerns, show goes on





Over 1,000 e-mails poured into University President Rev. Edward Glynn’s inbox last weekend, and they weren’t all valentine greetings.


These e-mails came from people all over the nation, expressing fierce opposition to last weekend’s production of “The Vagina Monologues.”


According to Glynn and chair of the Communications Department Sister Mary Ann Flannery, the e-mails detailed opposition to the production’s controversial content being displayed on a Catholic university’s campus.


These e-mails were generated, according to Glynn and Flannery, through efforts made by the Cardinal Newman Society.


This society is an ultra-conservative Catholic group, based in Virginia, said Flannery, who was in charge of the monologues.


The e-mails also contained objections to a portion of the production’s proceeds being given to the Cleveland Rape Crisis Center, a member of the pro-choice Freedom of Choice Cleveland Coalition.


Since those e-mails were received, the University made the decision to revoke the funds being given to the Cleveland Rape Crisis Center, and re-direct them to the Missing and Murdered Women of Juarez, Mexico.


The Cardinal Newman Society calls itself “the national organization dedicated to the renewal of Catholic identity in Catholic higher education in the United States.”


The society makes efforts to regulate activity on Catholic campuses, to make sure that the activities and policies coincide with their idea of the true Catholic tradition.


The Cardinal Newman Society is, according to Vice President of Student Affairs Patrick Rombalski, “the Catholic police.”


The Cardinal Newman Society, which called for all of these e-mails to be sent to Glynn, ran an ad in Tuesday’s issue of USA Today, calling attention to all of the Catholic universities in the United States which are producing “The Vagina Monologues” this month or next, asking people to e-mail the presidents of all of the universities listed with their objections to the play.


John Carroll was on that list.


“It’s not the first time,” Glynn said. He has been flooded before with e-mails due to the group’s efforts.


He added, “I do not respect the Cardinal Newman Society’s leadership.”


In reaction to the society’s actions, Flannery said, “I think the Cardinal Newman Society is the closest organization in the Catholic Church to the Taliban. [The Cardinal Newman Society] has used harassment and terrorist tactics to shut down the president’s computer system and to do harm to my department’s office,” Flannery said.


“If they can effectively cripple the president’s office, they will surely feel they’ve won.”


In response to the Cardinal Newman Society’s main objections to “The Vagina Monologues,” Flannery made three main points.


First, she said, “The play is part of an international group whose objective is to raise consciousness and efforts toward eliminating violence against women and children.”


Second, she said, “The play is not pornographic.” Flannery said that the play is a type of “guerilla drama,” which is designed to address an issue.


This type of theater, according to Flannery, is centuries old and has its roots in dramatic literature as far back as the middle ages.


Third, Flannery stated, “The play has nothing to do with abortion. The word is not even mentioned [in the production].”


Flannery has seen “The Vagina Monologues.” Her reactions were that the play contains “a mixture of comedy and a seriousness which borders on tragedy. It is a guerilla theatre—it uses the element of entertainment to get to some very serious and provocative concerns.”


“I am not worried about the ‘Vagina Monologues,’ but I am [concerned] about the Cardinal Newman Society,” Flannery said. “We are a university; we must raise issues of disagreement, related to interpreting the faith and related to free speech—to a level of discourse which respects the various positions on the issues.”


Flannery continued in saying, “The first victims of violence are women and children, and when efforts to address their situations and to raise consciousness about them are stymied by the comfortable and the powerful, the violence continues.”


Finally, she said, “Catholics have to have solidarity and openness to address violence. That is the teaching of my faith.”


“The Vagina Monologues” will continue at John Carroll next year if the students want it to, Flannery said. “[The students of John Carroll University] have academic freedom.”

The controversial e-mail was written by Paul Lauritzen, director of the Applied Ethics Program and professor of Religious Studies

It looks as though he makes up his "ethics" as he goes along and then changes them when it suits him.

It's interesting (or perhaps not) that someone who teaches "applied ethics" should be in such small supply of any.

Paul Lauritzen, professor of Religious Studies at John Carroll University, testified in a report to the July meeting of President Bush's Council on Bioethics that human embryos are not persons, and that embryonic stem cell experiments should proceed. He criticized the Church's insistence that laws should respect the embryo as "a human subject with a well-defined identity."

This was the part I really liked. It says it all. "I'm for freedom of speech as long as it's mine and not in disagreement with my leftist causes." This is what our students are subjected to on a daily basis. Damn, just damn.

“I am not worried about the ‘Vagina Monologues,’ but I am [concerned] about the Cardinal Newman Society,” Flannery said. “We are a university; we must raise issues of disagreement, related to interpreting the faith and related to free speech—to a level of discourse which respects the various positions on the issues.”

My education did start in the home and my Dad (who was always proud of "Uncle Joe" McCarthy) didn't really like the idea of my going to Jesuit schools, but he went along for the educational value of it. As I got older, I realized how right he was.

_ Paul Lauritzen has been a Religious Studies
professor since 1985 and Chairman of the Religious
Studies Department since 1999. He is
Director of the Program in Applied Ethics and
teaches bioethics and religious ethics.
Lauritzen testified in a report prepared for the
July 2003 meeting of the U.S. President’s
Council on Bioethics that the human embryo is
not a person. “I do not think the early embryo
is a person, and I believe that both embryonic
and adult stem cell research should go forward
under a system of strict regulation,” Lauritzen
wrote in the paper titled “The Ethics of Stem
Cell Research”. The paper argues against the
Catholic Church’s insistence that laws concerning
stem cell research be rooted in respect
for the human embryo as “a human subject
with a well-defined identity.” Lauritzen argues
that the embryo’s status with individual
rights is problematic and less important than
societal concerns about the impact of embryonic
stem cell research. In a February 2004
letter to a campus newspaper, Lauritzen called
Catholic teaching on contraception “misguided”
and argued “the moral necessity of using
condoms to prevent the spread of
HIV/AIDS”.

Does the professor possess a mandatum issued by the competent ecclesiastical authority? If so, did he violate his declaration to remain within the full communion of the Catholic Church?

Good points to mention if communiting with the 'competent' Bishop and or University...

Senior Brian Ellis, who was one of the students who got a hold of the e-mail, met with Lauritzen.

“We’re not paying for a one-sided education,” Ellis said.

No, but your parents are. And maybe the taxpayers too, which is why the list of colleges that I'll consider spending my money on is only five or six long. Otherwise, my kids will have to pay their own way.
