Is Diversity a Sacrament?

Certain Catholic colleges and universities treat it as though it were. Here in Washington, D. C., at Georgetown  University, the dean will apologize to offended professors if Catholic doctrine manages to get repeated at a Hoya lectern.
Boston College  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.
What the two had in common was a consistently pro-choice voting record on abortion.
