    MADISON, Wis. — Still fighting for his speech and contractual rights two years after Marquette University drove him out of the classroom, Professor John McAdams will receive a top national academic freedom prize Friday at the Conservative Political Action Conference in National Harbor, Maryland. McAdams will be awarded the Jeane Jordan Kirkpatrick Award for Academic Freedom for his outspoken criticism of political correctness on college campuses. “Professor McAdams is a fearless defender of free speech and open inquiry, and a martyr to political correctness,” said Richard Graber, president and CEO of the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation, which supports the Kirkpatrick Award. “His dismissal from Marquette University...

    Bishop Doerfler’s Stunning Church Music Letter   HE PSALMS from the Old Testament give witness to the human expression of faith through Sacred Music that manifests the beauty of God. It is our joy to give God the best, most beautiful musical expression that we can offer him as we sing the Mass. My illustrious predecessor, the Most Reverend Alexander K. Sample, wrote eloquently regarding Sacred Music in his pastoral letter entitled, Rejoice in the Lord Always. The teaching and directives given therein remain in effect, although he acknowledged that the implementation of the directives would take some time...

  • College Intelligentsia Strike Again: Professor Fired for Political Views

    03/29/2016 7:22:55 AM PDT · by TigerClaws · 17 replies
    Marquette University professor John McAdams has been suspended from his position. His crime? Writing on a post on his personal blog that criticized the actions of another professor, who had instructed her students not to voice their opinions if they were anti-gay marriage or anti-gay adoption. It’s important to note that McAdams didn’t take a policy position in his post. He simply made the suggestion that – gasp! – students should have the freedom to voice their opinions in an academic setting. Sadly, as McAdams accurately points out in his post, “Of course, only certain groups have the privilege of...
  • Michigan Bishop Inaugurates Program to Have Chant at All Parishes

    01/31/2016 1:45:08 PM PST · by marshmallow · 22 replies
    Bishop John Doerfler of Marquette, Michigan, has issued directions for all parishes in the diocese to institute programs that will lead to the congregation chanting the Ordinary parts of the Mass. Following up on the work of his predecessor in Marquette, then-Bishop Alexander Sample (who is now Archbishop of Portland, Oregon), Bishop Doerfler has called for the action to carry out the vision of Vatican II, which encouraged the use of Gregorian chant and congregational involvement in the singing. In a pastoral letter released in 2013, Bishop Sample had also called attention to the Council's directives on liturgical music, as...

    MADISON, Wis. — In the wake of a public relations nightmare over a campus mural glorifying a cop killer, Marquette University has cut ties with director of its Gender and Sexuality Resource Center. “Susannah Bartlow is no longer an employee with Marquette University,” said University Spokesman Brian Dorrington told Marquette Wire. “We will work with the Center’s advisory board to search for a new director so that we can continue to grow the important programs in the Center.” Marquette administrators had the mural of black militant Assata Shakur (formerly known as JoAnne Deborah Chesimard) removed Sunday evening, but not until,...

    The director of Marquette University's Gender and Sexuality Resource Center is no longer employed by the university, the Marquette Wire is reporting. The move comes after the university quickly removed a mural on campus that had generated outcry over the weekend because of its subject: a woman on the FBI's most wanted list who was convicted in a New Jersey state trooper's 1973 murder, escaped prison and fled to Cuba. The mural of Assata Shakur, formerly known as Joanne Chesimard, has been on display at the Marquette Gender and Sexuality Resource Center at least since March. "Susannah Bartlow is no...

    At Marquette University, if you write a blog criticizing a student teacher for stifling the speech of a student who doesn’t believe in same-sex marriage, you can lose your job. Commission a mural of a convicted cop killer, well, that’s just diversity of ideas. Yes, Marquette administrators had the mural of black militant Assata Shakur removed Sunday evening, but not until, ironically, long-time Marquette political science professor John McAdams broke the story on his “Marquette Warrior” blog. That’s the same John McAdams who has been suspended from teaching since November, when the political conservative and frequent critic of Marquette administration...

    Proving once again that tenure offers little protection to more conservative scholars, Marquette’s president recently fired a tenured professor who possessed a more traditional outlook. “On November 9, 2014, you chose to post on the Internet a story prompted by a secretly-taped conversation between a student and a graduate student instructor,” Marquette Dean Richard Holz wrote to Dr. John McAdams on January 30, 2015. “While you left the student’s name out of your post, and later insisted that his anonymity be protected, you posted without permission the graduate student instructor’s name, Ms. Cheryl Abate.” “In addition, you gave an account...

    As we have reported, a professor at Marquette, John McAdams, was suspended after criticizing a graduate student who said she would not tolerate criticism of gay marriage in her classroom His suspension is drawing criticism from some unlikely quarters. “The sanction you imposed is not just a ‘severe sanction,’” Professor Daniel Maguire, also at Marquette, wrote in a letter to the university’s president that the professor allowed the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) to publish. We have noted that the AAUP is also looking into this case and asking some pointed questions of Marquette administrators. “ In almost half...

    To its undying credit, the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) has questioned whether the academic freedom of a Catholic professor at a Jesuit university was violated. “Dr. John McAdams, associate professor of political science at Marquette University, has sought the assistance of the American Association of University Professors as a result of having been informed, by letter of December 16, 2014, that the university was suspending him with pay ‘until further notice’ from his teaching responsibilities ‘and all other faculty activities’ and banning him from campus,” Gregory F. Scholtz of the AAUP wrote in a letter to Marquette’s president....

    Marquette University has suspended a tenured political science professor after he blogged about his disapproval of the actions of a teaching assistant at the Catholic school, who forbade a student from discussing an opposing view to gay marriage in her class. Associate Professor John McAdams' suspension with pay comes as Marquette University has begun requiring its faculty to attend anti-harassment training, where they are instructed to report any employee that speaks out in opposition to gay marriage. In November, McAdams criticized teaching assistant Cheryl Abbate in a blog post because she prevented a student from discussing his opinion on gay...

    Milwaukee, Wis., Dec 9, 2014 / 04:03 am (CNA/EWTN News).- An anti-harassment training presentation at a Catholic college encourages employees to report critics of “gay marriage” – and could reflect recent federal decisions that the belief in marriage as a union of a man and a woman is discriminatory. Part of the employee anti-harassment training at the Wisconsin-based Marquette University includes a presentation with a comic strip-style story about a fictional employee named “Harassed Hans,” a man in a wheelchair. The training encourages Hans to report to the university human resources his co-workers Becky and Maria who “have been talking...

    Catholic professors and other faculty members at a prominent Wisconsin Catholic university are now being trained to report any school employees who voice their opposition to same-sex marriage as a form of harassment to the university's human resources office. Marquette University has begun requiring its employees to attend workplace anti-harassment training, where they are taught that it is imperative for them to quickly report faculty members who discuss openly their opposing view of same-sex marriage. As the Catholic News Agency reports, Marquette's anti-harassment training includes a comic-style story presentation where a fictional character named "Harassed Hans," who overhears his co-workers,...

    Almost 100 years after the Henry B. Smith freighter went down during a November storm in Lake Superior, a group of shipwreck hunters thinks it has found the ship - and much of it is largely intact. The group found the wreck last month in about 535 feet of water off the shore of Marquette, Mich., according to the Duluth News Tribune. The group says it hasn't seen the name of the ship on the wreck yet, but all signs indicate it's the Smith, sitting amid a spilled load of iron ore. "It's the most satisfying find of my shipwreck-hunting...

Best known for his parts in the series “House M.D.” and the “Harold and Kumar” movies, Penn also stars for the White House under another role: associate director of public engagement. He spoke before a crowd of more than 100 in the Alumni Memorial Union. “I got a phone call in 2008 asking if I could serve in a much bigger way in youth outreach,” Penn said. “I am honored to serve my country. I’m happy to do this. I thought it was...
