I'm One Proud Homotaedet

So Seton Hall is a diocesan school? Then where the hell's the bishop? In the meantime, try to stomach this article from LifeSiteNews.com. Here's some of it; (Emphasis mine)
Catholic Seton Hall U. to Offer Gay 'Marriage' Course by Homosexualist Prof

SOUTH ORANGE, New Jersey, April 28, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Seton Hall University, the oldest Catholic diocesan university in the U.S., will be offering a same-sex "marriage" course taught by a homosexualist professor.

The Setonian, the university's newspaper, reported that the new course offering for Fall 2010 would be offered by associate professor W. King Mott, an open homosexual who was demoted in 2005 after complaining about the Catholic Church's stance against homosexuality.

“The Roman Catholic Church is prima facie homophobic,” Mott had told the press. “The Roman Catholic Church considers me to be inherently disordered. I don't know how much more homophobic one can be.” However, the university insisted that it was not rebuking Mott for his personal views, but only for failing to disassociate himself from the school.

Mott, who as of 2005 lived with his male partner, openly maintains an affiliation with Lambda Legal, the Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies, and Human Rights Campaign, all leading homosexualist groups.

Here is Archbishop Myers' response...

From the article:
"According to Myers, Seton Hall's Board of Trustees has already asked the Board of Regents 'to investigate the matter of this proposed course, and to take whatever action is required under the law to protect the Catholicity of this university.' "

Yes,
There has already been a response from the Abp.

Here's the point I was getting at; the attitude within the 'leadership' of SH is such, that an outrage such as this can already be set into motion.

Why are there people in place that allow this sort of thing? What kind of school is the Abp running there?

Oops, one more thing I wanted to, but failed to mention --- this prof was demoted due to going against Church Teaching.... but still on payroll?

I must ask again (rhetorically, of course), what kind of school is the Abp running?

Cavey, as someone who works at a college & knows a bit about the arcane workings of tenure, I suspect that is the reason he hasn't been summarily fired. Doing some research it looks like he started there back in the 90s, before Archbishop Myers came on the scene. He may have kept it low key enough so that he may have gotten tenure before the 1st blowup in 2005. & while tenure doesn't make it impossible to fire someone, it does make it very difficult.

Like I said though, this may all conjecture on my part. I can't be sure, esp since in 1999 he was described as a visiting professor although he was also a dean at the same time. & finding details out about him is very difficult.

But, as I said, if he does have tenure, then it wouldn't be as easy to fire him, even at a Catholic College.

On the other hand, after his demotion in 2005 he said he would be looking for a new job. Apparently he hasn't been working that hard to find one.

Yes, the same issue of tenure is the reason given for the continued employment of heterodox Dan Maguire at Marquette U. in Milwaukee.

But isn't it time that some Catholic college stepped up to the plate and removed them despite this?

At least the leadership can ensure that these guys do not teach in the theology dept. And there is nothing stopping the leadership of the Catholic colleges and universities from denouncing that which these miscreants teach. Academic freedom works both ways!
