The good news is that a bishop stood up and urged a Jesuit college to withdraw its invitation to a pro-abortion speaker. The bad news is that the Jesuit college essentially told him to pound sand.

This is truly disgraceful.

The Cardinal Newman Society reports:

Last week, The Cardinal Newman Society reported that Scranton University is hosting a former Congresswoman and advocate of abortion rights on campus to help train women to run for public office. On Tuesday, The Cardinal Newman Society sent the report to more than 90,000 online members.

Today, the Diocese of Scranton issued a statement saying Bishop Joseph Bambera specifically requested the Jesuit university to withdraw the invitation but they’ve refused.

Bishop Bambera called the college’s decision “dismaying” and “personally disheartening.”
