Seton Hall will offer course on same-sex marriage despite archbishop's concern

Catholic World News - August 25, 2010

A Catholic university in New Jersey has scheduled a course on same-sex marriage for the fall semester, despite a plea from the local archbishop to reconsider the course offering.

Seton Hall’s class schedule for the fall includes “The Politics of Gay Marriage,” to be taught by W. King Mott, who has told students that he has received no indication that the course should not be offered.

Archbishop John Myers of Newark had expressed acute concern about the course earlier this year, saying that the syllabus suggested an offering that would be at odds with Church teaching.

    Seton Hall - another catholic university that has been co-opted by progressive clergy and professors, filling young minds full of socialist garbage. There are several truly Catholic universities; Seton Hall is, unfortunately, not one of them.

    Express concern all you want, what are you going to do, Archbishop?
