Catholic College Leaders’ Excuses for Honoring Pro-Aborts
Catholic College Leaders’ Excuses for Honoring Pro-Aborts
5/26/2016 |Opinion| If you’ve ever wondered why so many Catholic colleges think it’s okay to honor abortion advocates at their commencement ceremonies, a former Jesuit university president recently helped shed some light on the issue.

The Jesuit publication America Magazine posted a three-part series on its website this month about scandalous commencement honors at Catholic colleges. In parts one and two of the series, Father Jim McDermott, S.J., of America spoke with me about concerns raised by The Cardinal Newman Society regarding former President Bill Clinton being chosen to give the commencement address and receive an honorary degree at Loyola Marymount University (LMU) in Los Angeles, Calif. The interviews also touch on the broader issue of the damage done to a college’s Catholic identity — and the potential spiritual harm done to students — when Catholic colleges choose to hold up individuals as worthy of praise and emulation who publicly advocate for the murder of unborn children.
