Are We Still a Catholic University?

The head of the Classics Department at Notre Dame told one of his Ph.D students this week that "praying before class was inappropriate" and that he shouldn't do it. This particular Ph.D led the Lord's Prayer in Latin before every one of his Latin classes this semester. How aggregious!!!

I have to ask: Does the administration care at all about the Catholic identity of this school? Why bother to hire professors who are openly hostile to the practice of Catholicism? Imagine! Praying before class at Our Lady's university! You know, if these people hate Christianity so much that they feel it necessary to prohibit short prayers at the beginning of class, maybe they should go somewhere else. They're certainly not doing this university any favors.
