Prof. John McAdams to speak at St. John's, Greenfield, March 15th
The newsletter item includes this background.
'''John McAdams has taught at Marquette since1977. ...Unfortunately, Marquette University, a supposedly Catholic school, has cancelled Professor McAdams’ spring semester classes, and has told him not to appear on campus.
'''In a 1-25-15 article in the National Catholic Register, critics of Marquette University insist that, ''McAdams is being punished for his willingness to uphold Church teachings about the definition of marriage. McAdams believes the Wisconsin-based Jesuit University has 'suspended' him for criticizing a Marquette ethics professor who told a student that his position against same-sex 'marriage' could be considered offensive to homosexuals in her class.'' According to the article, Prof. McAdams stated that Marquette ''has shown itself to be timid, overly bureaucratic and lacking any commitment to either its Catholic mission or free expression.'' McAdams, who has tenure, also vowed a ''court battle'' if Marquette tries to fire him.'''
