Father Wilson Miscamble, not content to stir the pot by defending Truman in regard to the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, in the above video attacks the myth that there is a shortage of able Catholic scholars to fill academic positions at Notre Dame and other Catholic colleges and universities. This speech I assume was given as a response to this resolution of the Notre Dame faculty senate on April 9, 2012: The University should not compromise its academic aspirations in its efforts to maintain its Catholic identity.
The Sycamore Trust, a group seeking to preserve the Catholic identity of Notre Dame, and which sponsored the speech of Father Miscamble, has published this charming rant from an unnamed Notre Dame professor in response to criticisms that a Notre Dame department has listed pro-abort organizations as potential employers of Notre Dame interns:
Back off — you should be ashamed of yourselves, with your bullying “oral” tactics. Wake up. Do you think only Christians like you have a purchase on morality? Remember the Inquisition. Remember the Holocaust when your Pope refused to protect Jews and collaborated with the Nazi. Remember your priests who even today choose to fondle little boys with no choice in the matter. And the superior priests who moved them from one parish to the next … and kept their secrets.
Hmm, if Notre Dame can’t hire more Catholic professors, perhaps they could hire fewer anti-Catholic bigot professors?
