    Gatestone Institute ^ | January 25, 2010 | Stephen Suleyman Schwartz
    U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has lifted the visa ban on the European theoretician of radical Islam and virtuoso Jew-baiter, Tariq Ramadan, allowing him to take up a position similar to that he was offered at Notre Dame University, but which was filled because of his unavailability. At the same time, a U.S. entry prohibition against a South African leftist, Adam Habib of Johannesburg University, was voided. The decision to admit Tariq Ramadan is profoundly wrong. Adam Habib is an innocuous figure. Tariq Ramadan is not. Ramadan was first barred from the U.S. in 2004 ... the denial of...

    WASHINGTON —  In a potentially groundbreaking decision, the U.S. Supreme Court nullified a federal court ruling against the University of Notre Dame on the HHS contraception mandate and sent it back for reconsideration by the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals. The university is “gratified” by the decision, said its vice president of public affairs and communications, Paul Browne. Notre Dame officials had requested the case be remanded by the court in light of the Hobby Lobby decision last June. “Notre Dame continues to challenge the federal mandate as an infringement on our fundamental right to the free exercise of our...

    A conference today at the University of Notre Dame will address “a pastoral strategy for parishes to be able to receive the gifts of self-identified gay Catholics,” while remaining faithful to Catholic teaching on marriage and sexuality—but some speakers’ perspectives on “gay identity” may fall short of true orthodoxy. “Gay in Christ: Dimensions of Fidelity” is co-sponsored by Notre Dame’s Institute for Church Life (ICL) and the Gender Relations Center. ICL director Dr. John Cavadini poses the following question on the University’s website: “Can Church teaching support an ‘exchange of gifts,’ enabling a parish community to receive the gifts that such people bring...

Posner reportedly questioned precisely what remedy the university wanted since the school had already submitted the required form for the University to opt-out and switch the cost for abortifacients and contraceptives for employees to a third party administrator, according to the...

    Notre Dame philosophy professor Gary Gutting A professed Catholic who holds the Notre Dame Endowed Chair in Philosophy has drawn a sharp rebuke for his public rejection of the Church's teaching authority on contraception and other subjects. According to Professor Gary Gutting, the 'people of the Church have spoken' and they don't accept the teaching of the Church on this particular point, noted Professor William E. May of the Pontifical John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family. However, that does not settle the issue, because our Lord himself has given the authority to speak in his...

    A philosophy professor at the University of Notre Dame has declared in the New York Times that the bishops no longer decide morality in the Church and that “the immorality of birth control is no longer a teaching of the Catholic Church.”Gary Gutting, Endowed Chair in Philosophy, argued that the will of many Catholics who choose to use contraceptives is paramount to the teaching of the bishops. …haven’t the members of the Catholic Church recognized their bishops as having full and sole authority to determine the teachings of the Church? By no means. There was, perhaps, a time when the...

    NOTRE DAME, Ind. (CNS) -- Calling the dignity of the human person "a primary doctrine" of the Catholic Church, Archbishop Timothy M. Dolan of New York told an audience at the University of Notre Dame Dec. 6 that it must prompt Catholics "to treat ourselves and others only with respect, love, honor and care." That doctrine also means people must not be identified "with our urges, our flaws, our status, our possessions, our utility," but each seen as "a child of God, his creation, modeled in his own image, destined for eternity," he said. The archbishop, president of the U.S....

    A dispute that pits the principle of church autonomy against an unfair firing claim is headed for the U.S. Supreme Court.At issue is whether an elementary school operated by a Missouri Synod Lutheran church in Michigan was justified in dismissing a teacher attempting to return to work after a disability leave related to narcolepsy. She filed a claim with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, alleging a violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act.Though a decision may be an entire year away, churches are keeping a close eye on the case. The turning point is whether the teacher can be considered...
