Papal Nuncio warns of ‘Catholic’ instructors who imperil religious liberty

The future of religious liberty in the U.S. isn’t only a matter of concern for our country’s bishops, but also for Pope Benedict XVI. His emissary to the U.S., Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, gave an address on November 4th at the University of Notre Dame in which he raised some serious concerns about religious liberty both abroad and in our country.

It’s an issue, not just with politicians, but also with educators, especially those in higher education:

In regard to teachers, especially university and college professors, we have witnessed that some instructors who claim the moniker “Catholic” are often the sources of teachings that conflict with, rather than explain and defend, Catholic teachings in the important public policy issues of the day. While some of these faculty members are affiliated with non-Catholic institutions of higher learning, others teach at institutions that hold themselves out to be Catholic. This, my brothers and sisters, is a grave and major problem that challenges the first freedom of religious liberty and the higher purpose of the human person.

We haven’t seen that before, have we?
