U of St. Thomas: "Never Mind!"

They flipped.

Just before Pope Benedict XVI arrived in the United States Tuesday, a Catholic university in Minnesota that had previously blocked a pro-life speaker from appearing on campus reversed its position

...Star Parker, a Christian activist and writer, is now scheduled to speak at the University of St. Thomas on Monday, April 21. She is expected to discuss the impact of abortion on minority communities. Parker, who is African-American, specializes on the topic of race and poverty in America

This is not likely due to the Pope's visit, nor some actual thought.

This is a matter of money--some significant donor spoke up.

Gee, I hope they didn't drop their transmission shifting gears so quickly.
