Dan Maguire: Cancer

Below we noted that Dan Maguire, ex-priest and heretic who teaches "theology" at Marquette University, authored a pack of lies sent to each Congressman. In this pack of lies, Maguire attempts to make the case that Homosex "marriage" is a grand old tradition, sometimes approved by the Church.

Well, that's not a surprise to anyone who knows Maguire's history. The surprise and disappointment is that Marquette University insists on retaining this jackass on its payroll.

Apparently Dan Maguire has sold his soul to some very influential friends:

The link above is to Planned Parenthood's 70th anniversary dinner program here. Pictures of the event show BagManJim Doyle sucking up to Dan Maguire and Alex Sanger (related to the racist, Margaret Sanger) curiously interposed with a picture of Willie Davis, a former Green Bay Packer (and beer distributor whose main line was Schlitz.) By no co-incidence, Ms. Lynde Uihlein (a Schlitz brewing heiress) was also pictured...

Maguire made some remarks:

The audience also enjoyed the erudite, insightful and often hilarious remarks of the evening’s master of ceremonies, Professor Dan Maguire, Milwaukee’s own Catholic theologian who has written extensively about a woman’s sacred right to manage her own body and life. “These 70
years of Planned Parenthood have been an epic profile in courage,” said Maguire. “Family planning in theocratic America is dangerous."
(Apparently Maguire did not credit his co-author, the Father of Lies)

Follow the money, folks:

Jim Stewart, President and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin, presented the 2005
Margaret Miller Award, PPWI’s highest honor, to Lynde Uihlein. “Lynde is a great friend and champion of women’s health…

And, of course, a low-level bought-and-sold "Catholic" comic:

Milwaukee Comedian John McGivern treated the audience to his memories of growing up in a working class Catholic neighborhood. John’s performance was in honor of a friend he had in his youth who became pregnant at the age of 19 and was in a bad relationship. Her friends told her they would help her and took her to Planned Parenthood. Twenty some years later, she says she has a family—two daughters and a husband—because of Planned Parenthood.

The woman has a husband and two children "because of Planned Parenthood"? Really! Did PP officiate at the wedding?

Well, Dan, you have your friends.

Will Marquette University grow a backbone?

Who does this guy report to? Anyone even think of requesting a mandate from this heretic, a la Ex Corde Ecclesiae? It never ceases to amaze and anger me that there is no accountability among 'catholic' theologians to the Catholic Church. Where are the Jesuits when you need them? Oh, I forgot, many of them have joined the other side..

Here's Marquette's blather:

Since 1881, Marquette University has been known for its commitment to educational excellence in the 450-year-old Jesuit tradition. The Jesuit order of Catholic priests has embraced the belief that true education should develop not only the intellect, but also moral and spiritual character.

A Marquette education aims not only for the mind, but also the heart and soul. The experience is more than an acquisition of knowledge; it's a transformational education that challenges you to develop the goals and values that will shape the rest of your life.

For whatever reason, the Chair of Theo at M.U. is not easily available on their website:

In other words, "bugger off and don't dare to question us." That about sums it up, right?
