Catholic News Service ran an article about Hilary Clinton speaking at Canisius College (Catholic)
"John J. Hurley, Canisius' vice president for college relations, told Catholic News Service that the college "will not give ... awards or honors" to public officials who espouse positions in conflict with fundamental church teachings, "but they can be invited to speak on campus so long as they do not use that as a forum to disagree with church teachings."
BUT AN IMPORTANT WORD WAS LEFT OUT OF QUOTE (from the US Bishop's Statement)
"The Catholic community and Catholic institutions should not honor those who act in defiance of our fundamental moral principles.
They should not be given awards, honors or platforms which would suggest support for their actions (US BISHOPS: Catholics in Public Life)."
PADRE POINT: YES, a PLATFORM is exactly what was given to Hilary, another scandal within 'Catholic' colleges. Why are we so afraid to stand up to these politicians as a Church???
