Re: Athena Kerry`s Column: God and Girl At Catholic College

It`s interesting that popular culture has taken over Catholic institutions.  

I am no longer surprised when a great Jesuit college like the University of Detroit Mercy encourages female students to pursue careers at Planned Parenthood or to embark on fund-raising campaigns to build mosques on campus.  

Intellectual pursuits have been replaced by monetary ones in the name of political correctness. For Catholics to send their children to Catholic schools/universities is really sending them to places where they are taught to be ashamed for being Catholic.   

The lack of critical thinking skills defies imagination. The idea that open-mindedness is the pinnacle of intellectual achievement suggests that college students have entirely too much time on their hands.

Margaret graduated from Aquinas College in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Says Margaret: "Despite being persecuted by political correctness, I am proud to be an Irish Catholic, an ethnic group that has contributed mightily to the establishment and success of Catholic universities including the former University of Detroit from which several generations of my family have graduated."
