Is Seattle University Less Catholic Than Gonzaga?

Students, staff and alumni rarely question the Jesuit nature of Seattle University, but the Catholic title seems to bring some confusion and fear. Seattle U leads Jesuit universities in its progressive views toward sexual education, its implementation of social justice and its acceptance of diversity, yet critics of the university’s image still claim that Seattle U is less “Catholic” than its regional competitor Gonzaga University.

Since Universities are places of though I would think that progressive views would take place regardless of religious views even if the place is of religious background. The need for dialogue outweighs an organizations views.
