A Nun with What It Takes

By Fr. Wilson (articles ) | Apr 12, 2003

It's not that there's NO good news out there. Just that sometimes you have to look for it. -FrW

"Dozens of secular humanists and atheists were locked out of a meeting Wednesday at the College of St. Catherine in St. Paul because their gathering didn't fit the mission of the Catholic women's college, the school's president said Thursday. Dan Barker and Annie Laurie Gaylor, speakers from the Freedom From Religion Foundation in Madison, Wis., had been invited to a meeting sponsored by the College of St. Catherine Secular Committee, a group of faculty and staff members and students that is not affiliated with the school. Sister Andrea Lee, college president, said in an interview Thursday night that she learned who the group was only a few hours before it was to meet, when people contacted St. Catherine's about a small article in Wednesday's Star Tribune that noted the meeting. It was then, she said, that she decided the group was inconsistent with St. Catherine's mission. "The college has its roots, its identity, its essence in its religious values," she said. "The group essentially calls those fundamental values into question." http://www.startribune.com/stories/614/3817350.html
