The universities are governed by a cross section of the U.S. bishops who will not discipline institutions that abuse the label "Catholic". They are misleading parents and students about the true faith. These bishops will have to answer to their Maker for this failing someday ...

Seven of the ten are Jesuit colleges/universities. What a fall from grace.

USCCB needs to crack down and tell them to stop this disgrace or remove "Catholic" from the school's name. Also should insist on them complying with ex corde ecclesiae. They are bringing scandal to the Church, equal to the politicians who have been told not to present themselves to receive Communion. If the bishops let them get away with this behavior, they'll have no one to blame but themsleves when the Church is persecuted and the pews are empty.

The last time this was perfomed at Loyola in New Orleans was 2004 and the new president, Fr. Wildes, said he could do nothing about it because the last prez had contracted it. So, now what's his excuse?
