Another "Catholic" College's Shame

Ban Star Parker?

Liberal administrators at the University of St. Thomas, a Catholic university and private college in Minnesota, censored the appearance of prominent pro-life and black speaker Star Parker. On April 21, 2008, Star—the best-selling author of numerous books—was slated to speak on campus about the devastating impact abortion has on minority communities. UST Vice President of Student Affairs Jane Canney nixed the idea entirely, citing “concerns” that the lecture was being underwritten by Young America’s Foundation

That's not all.

Jane Canney told Katie and her sister, Amie Kieffer, a senior at St. Thomas and editor of the St. Thomas Standard, “As long as I am a vice president at St. Thomas, the Young America’s Foundation will not be allowed on campus.”

Another case of someone who is so open-minded that their brains fell out.

Incredible. Yes, I believe in academic freedom (including allowing pro-choice speakers) but why a Catholic college would silence a legitimate view consistent with church teaching is simple incredible.
