Is Diversity a Sacrament?

Certain Catholic colleges and universities treat it as though it were. Here in Washington, D. C., at Georgetown [1] University, the dean will apologize to offended professors if Catholic doctrine manages to get repeated at a Hoya lectern.

Boston College [2] takes a different tack. It honors those who the secular might view as renegades and the faithful might call heretical.

On March 7, 2011, BC honored the late Robert Drinan, a Jesuit priest who served in Congress in the 1970s. One of the featured speakers at the event was U. S. Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., never known to be a friend of the church.
