Is the Ateneo de Manila University still Catholic?
Monk's Hobbit posted a very interesting article about what happened during the dialogues about the "Speech-gate" of PLDT boss Manny Pangilinan.
The discussion about the the actions taken by the Board of Trustees on the resignation of Pangilinan as Chairman led to the discussion about the support of the faculty of the Ateneo for:
1. the Reproductive Health Bill, which legalizes artificial birth control and gives the appropriate budget for this from the national government and;
2. a professor in a Catholic University which pushes for the adoption of homosexual norms in the government, in defiance of Catholic moral teaching on homosexuality as stated in the Catechism.
With professors like these in a Catholic University, who needs heretics, schismatics and atheists?
If St. Ignatius were alive, you know he'll smack his Jesuit sons in the head.
