    It's not enough for President Obama's National Labor Relations Board to target the Boeing plant in South Carolina. Now the NLRB thinks it can tell a church school when it's not religious enough. Most people have heard by now of NLRB's unprecedented decree that Boeing Co. cannot build a new airline production facility in South Carolina. But Obama's NLRB is also claiming the authority to dictate labor policies and order union elections at Catholic universities if they are not religious enough.

    Scandal: 96 Catholic Universities Have Pro-Homosexual ClubsHelp stop this scandal by signing the TFP’s urgent appeal to the presidents of Catholic universities Here is a list Catholic universities with pro-homosexual clubs Historically, Catholic universities have been beacons of truth. They have set a standard of intellectual progress and moral excellence. They have elevated culture, formed the minds of great men, and paved the way for abundant scientific breakthroughs. However, these beacons of truth are now failing. Moral values are being undermined on many Catholic campuses and the principles that once guided souls in the noble task of higher learning are...

    A student at a Catholic university in Pittsburgh is protesting the school's decision to punish him for opposing the formation of a homosexual student group on campus. Duquesne University recently charged sophomore Ryan Miner with discrimination based on sexual orientation. Miner says he was punished for comments he made on a private website called Facebook.com after creating a group called "Against the Gay-Straight Alliance." Miner explains what happened. "I had written a blog, and I used not the most prudent of words but words that I felt coincided within my faith in the Catholic Church," the student shares. "I said,...

    Expulsion For Gay Comments? Duquesne Student Resists Punishment Catholic University Sanctions Student for Calling Homosexuality 'Subhuman' PITTSBURGH -- A Duquesne University sophomore will risk being kicked out of school rather than write an essay as punishment for expressing his view that homosexuality is "subhuman." Ryan Miner, 19, of Hagerstown, Md., was sanctioned by Duquesne after posting his view in The Facebook, an online directory that is not related to the university. Miner opposed an effort by other students to form a Gay-Straight Alliance group, an issue that is still being debated by the university. "I believe as a student...

Kline, August 26, 2005 Six Catholic universities have United Nations Childrens Fund (UNICEF)chapters on their campuses despite the Vaticans nine-year-old refusal to support the multilateral government agency.

From spokesmen and women at the sixBoston College, Fordham, Georgetown, Loyola-Marymount-California, the University of St. Thomas (Texas), and VillanovaI got many who answered They do? and It did? when I asked whether UNICEFs pro-choice stance and the papacys reaction to it...

    TeachingEuthanasiaBy Patrick J.ReillyThe intense battle to prevent Terri Schiavo's husband from removing her feeding tube was horrible enough. To think that some American Catholic universitiesand their ethics, theology, law, and medical professorsbear some responsibility for Schiavo's slow death is almost too much to imagine. Yet prior to Schiavo's death, professors from top Catholic universities helped convince the courts and the public that removing her feeding tube was acceptable and consistent with Catholic teachingeven while the Vatican said it was euthanasia. Several professors sought to publicly undermine Pope John Paul II's clear statements on the moral obligation to feed and hydrate...

  • Made-up massacre, 'Jenin Massacre' still exists only in the minds of the uninformed

    Facts are stubborn things - except when you create your own. When I was asked about the "Jenin Massacre" by a Muslim student during an event at Norfolk's Old Dominion this week, it became clear we were coming from two very different perspectives: reality vs. mythology. There was no "Jenin Massacre." Period. The only "massacre" that took place at Jenin was that of the truth. Palestinians, long masters of media manipulation, went by the hundreds to foreign media - whom Israel kept outside of the armed conflict - to claim that over 500 innocents had been slaughtered. The man at...
  • Ghost of McCarthy on campus (DePaul and Thomas Klocek, and "No Sense of Decency")

    Chicagos DePaul University, which has taken a couple of hits for its grotesque squashing of a professors free-speech rights, is hitting back, adding defamatory insult to career-ending injury and a question comes to mind. Its a question that was asked by the counsel for the Army in 1954 when Sen. Joseph McCarthy was seeking out Communists in the government. He threw his charges around with little or no evidence; others in Congress did the same, and sometimes reputations were recklessly ruined. In the hearing, McCarthy got tangled with the counsel, Joseph Welch, in suggesting that a young associate of...

    During his 14 years at DePaul University, Thomas Klocek dwelled in adjunct-professor purgatory, quietly coming and going times a week from his Loop classroom and his home on the citys Southwest Side. His evalutions from students in the universitys School of New Learning were consistently positiveand that, apparently, was enough for his bosses because nary a supervisor visited his classroom. Kloceks invisibility ran out, however, one day in September when he got caught up in a heated debate at a student activities fair on the schools downtown campus. He stopped at a table where two student groupsStudents for Justice in...

    Cardinal Newman Society's mission is the renewal of Catholic higher education, so we can hardly be pleased about losing historically Catholic colleges to secularization. But there comes a time when the bishops have to insist on truth in advertising. Two formerly Catholic colleges in Rochester, New York, now have honesty--if not fidelity to their founding principles--on their side. Thank you, Bishop Clark! Meanwhile, exciting new colleges like Southern Catholic College outside Atlanta are gearing up to take the place of the lost institutions. (Southern Catholic opens in the fall.) To paraphrase Darwin, it's a process of supernatural selection! ============================FRIDAY, FEBRUARY...

    he most radical experiment in American higher education today isn't taking place at an Ivy League university. Nor is it happening at one of the country's prestigious liberal-arts colleges such as Amherst or Davidson or at a big-name state university. No, this bold and significant academic undertaking has been quietly but powerfully under way for more than three decades on a bucolic mountain meadow near Santa Paula, Calif., 65 miles northwest of Los Angeles and not far from Santa Barbara.

The 56-page report, "The Culture of Death on Catholic Campuses: A Five-Year Review," documents inroads made by advocates of abortion, contraception, premarital sexual activity, and physician-assisted suicide onto Catholic college campuses since 1999.
