Priest lauds Catholic class offerings at ASU

    EWTN: “Arizona State University’s partnership with a Catholic college providing theology courses to students won praise from scholar Father Robert Spitzer as ‘an experiment in the logic of complementarity.’ . . .

In a move that has reminded many onlookers of heavy-handed institutional actions at Vanderbilt University and Tufts University, the school’s administration presented Bowdoin Christian Fellowship (BCF) volunteer leaders Rob and Sim Gregory with a ‘non-discrimination’ statement. This statement required, among other things, that the Gregorys open BCF leadership up to students of any sexual orientation.”
