Anti-Catholicism at Peru's rebellious pontifical university

Catholic World News - March 05, 2012

For years, officials at the Pontifical University of Peru (PUCP) have defied not only Vatican instructions but also the founding charter of the university itself. Now the Vatican has given the PUCP a deadline of Easter Sunday by which to bring its statutes and its educational plans into line with the terms of Ex Corde Ecclesiae, the document governing Catholic universities.

Carlos Polo, a former PUCP student, gives the readers of Catholic World Report some background on the conflict, which has now been going on for nearly 30 years. On the campus, he reports, dissent reigns:

Every enemy of the Catholic Church is today sheltered, promoted, and even financed by the PUCP. There are frequent demonstrations on campus against the Cardinal that are injurious to the students and against the Catholic Church in general.
