NEW OXFORD NOTEBOOK
A meritocracy fits America’s sense of itself as free from the class-based social structures that defined the European countries from which our predecessors fled.
Jason M. Morgan
Fr. Hesburgh proved to be a perfect avatar for the Notre Dame he created: an endorser of some kind of vaguely conceived “natural religion.”
Social Justice Warriors behave like cult members. They are little Cromwells who demand Robespierre-level ideological purity of every single person.
WHAT CONSTITUTES CULTURE ?
Public discourse remains limited to material concerns, but what really differentiates human beings is culture, which is founded on religion.
A review by Christopher Beiting of Francis Bethel, O.S.B's book John Senior and the Restoration of Realism
A review by K.F. Stewart of On Education, Formation, Citizenship and the Lost Purpose of Learning
A Catholic college, employing the vague and undefined empty vessel of "diversity," is willingly suppressing its own Catholic culture in favor of an infection with Western sexual obsessions.
A GERMINATING IN THE WEEDS OF IDEOLOGICAL SECULARISM

BIDEN & BOEHNER AT NOTRE DAME
Pushers of political correctness now desire, if not demand, something called "deep diversity" — that is, eliminating all signs of "whiteness" from campuses across the country.
The "trigger warning" movement seeks to scrub college campuses clean of words and ideas that might cause discomfort, hurt feelings, or negative thoughts. Almost everything has this potential.

ACADEMIC FREEDOM BOUND?
While Catholic colleges have stronger core requirements than their secular counterparts, most have abolished requirements for students to take Catholic theology courses.
There are campus activists and groups-- who are not necessarily Catholic or even Christian-- at Ivy League colleges fighting for traditional moral values on marriage and sexuality.
If you want to continue teaching on college campuses, it's best to hold to the
politically correct version of the genesis of homosexual orientation.
On at least one college campus, teaching certain aspects of the Catholic faith
-- even in the context of a class on Catholicism -- is considered "hate speech."
Michael V. McIntire
Notre Dame's honoring of President Obama was the full flowering of the university's rebellion against the Magisterium of the Church.
Thomas Aquinas College has been providing a superb classical education to students from all over the country for nearly four decades.

Being clever, brilliant, even what gets called “well-educated” is not to be equated, necessarily, with being considerate, kind, tactful, even plain polite or civil.
