The Jesuit Run Seattle University's Anti-Catholic Profesor, Denied Catholic Teaching Position At The Jesuit Run Marquette University For Being Anti-Catholic

Marquette University officials said Thursday that a lesbian scholar who has published works on gender and sexual orientation will no longer be offered a job as dean for the college of arts and sciences. 
The decision to withdraw the offer from Seattle University professor Jodi O'Brien wasn't about O'Brien's sexual orientation or the quality of her work, said Marquette spokeswoman Mary Pat Pfeil. 
But, Pfeil said, some of O'Brien's (pictured) published writings "relating to Catholic mission and identity" were a factor.
