Catholic Spring time readers:
I wanted to clarify a serious ambiguity in today’s original post title — Notre Dame U’s pro-abortion Times column — in no sense did I mean to imply that Notre Dame University itself was endorsing Dr. Gutting’s pro-abortion NY Times article. Whatever issues are related to Gutting’s academic freedom and the Catholic identity of Notre Dame as an academic institution (i.e. Ex Corde Ecclesiae), it is irresponsible to claim that one professor’s opinion represents a university’s stance.
Though it will be interesting to see how Notre Dame responds, it is important for me to be clearer.
I try to never be sensationalist or extreme in my judgments, but in this case my passion got the best of me.
Thank you to the reader who pointed out my careless language.
