Academic Freedom

In his talk to the faculty, he said the dispute presented a “test” of his views on academic freedom and its relation to Catholic identity. It is now hard to visualize any circumstances in which protection of Catholic identity would trump academic freedom. An event would have to evince even more hostility to the “tradition of Christian belief,” in the words of the school’s declared principles of academic freedom, than does The Vagina Monologues to run any risk of disapproval. No wonder, then, that Father Jenkins remarked that he “did not expect” ever to face “this sort of expression.”
