Open letter to Jenkins

Letter to the Editor | Friday, April 28, 2006

As an alumnus of the University of Notre Dame with two masters degrees – communication arts and theology – I am extremely disappointed in you and your recent sophomoric decision concerning academic freedom and Catholic character.

You unfortunately surrendered good academic reasoning for the more popular phony logic. You confused academic freedom with academic licentiousness.

I join Bishop John D’Arcy and others in denouncing your unsatisfactory decision.

Please change your mind and decision.
