An economics professor from Loyola University in New Orleans traveled to Baltimore's Loyola last week to give a lecture, and everybody's been apologizing ever since.
Everybody, that is, but the professor, Walter Block, who chalks up the flap to political correctness.
Could you post a link? Thanks.
I attended a Jesuit University - and found the Jesuits had been hijacked by homosexuals as much as they had been hijacked by liberation theology.
On the other hand, maybe homosexuality, political correctness and liberation theology come as a package deal.
“...since, by his account, he started off with a bit about how the Jesuit order has been “hijacked by a bunch of Marxists and liberation theologians.”
Ohhhh....someone who tells the truth....
There ARE some excellent Jesuits though (Fr. James Schall comes to mind).
An old article:

Oecumenical dialogue between the Jesuits and the Catholic Church can only be a good thing.
“Professor Block’s response to a question about the differences between average earnings of African-Americans and whites in America, which maintained that the disparity could be explained by differences in average productivity, was offensive, and we are sincerely sorry for it,” read a letter from the economics faculty and the Adam Smith Society.
“Professor Block’s remarks also included offensive comments regarding the source of wage disparities between men and women. We are deeply sorry for these remarks and the harm they have caused.”
The “Little Battalion” blog has an entire list of good Jesuits, see the column on right side called “Jesuits We Like”:
