We received a shocking email from a professor at the University of Notre Dame in response to our peaceful protest against their listing of internship opportunities to pro-abortion groups on the University website.
And since we received it, I have been praying and pondering on how to answer it. Would you offer some help, some suggestions on what to say in response?
I have withheld the name of the professor, so there is nothing personal here. It will be a principled and not a personal response. I have also edited one sentence for the sake of propriety.
Here is the email.
Message from ND professor:
Back off, you monsters. I teach at the University of Notre Dame and we are a finer university than you know. Of course we announce internships to organizations like:
Center for American Progress
Feminist Majority Foundation
Human Rights Watch
Institute for Women's Policy Research
National Women’s Law Center
United Nations Population Fund
Why wouldn't we? These organization each and all do fabulous work. And this university is a university - it participates in all dialogue. That's what a good university does.
Back off -- you should be ashamed of yourselves, with your bullying " oral" tactics. Wake up. Do you think only Christians like you have a purchase on morality? Remember the Inquisition.
Remember the Holocaust when your Pope refused to protect Jews and collaborated with the Nazi. Remember your priests who … and the superior priests who moved them from one parish to the next... and kept their secrets.
Back off with your morality. You wouldn't know what it was if it was poured over your head.
