Pro Abortion Former Priest Dan Maguire Stirring Up More Trouble At Marquette

So what does the administration at Marquette mean when they say Dr. Jodi O'Brien lacks "the ability to represent the Marquette mission and identity"? Is she unable to work for the greater glory of God because of Rev. Wild's estimation of her views on family? 
Dr. Daniel Maguire, a long-time theology professor at Marquette University, wrote a scathing open letter to Rev. Wild and the Marquette administration. I interviewed Dr. Maguire, whose disappointment was palpable. "I criticize the theology department; the administration made their case (against Dr. O'Brien) with Catholic teaching without consulting the theological experts on campus," said Maguire. 
He says these theological experts "have sat on their hands." Maguire explained that Marquette's administration has performed an "anti-Catholic action"

Dan Maguire was never a Jesuit. He is a former priest.

This short bio is from the website of former Jesuits entitled Just Good Company it states.

He is the author or co-author of 14 books, starting with Moral Absolutes and the Magisterium (Corpus 1970) and including most notably, Ethics for a Small Planet, co-authored in 1998 with Larry Rasmussen.

The "Just Good Company" site is wrong about Maguire having been a Jesuit. In fact, he was a priest of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. See the following links for more information: (includes text of a letter from Marquette President Fr. Robert Wild, S.J. affirming that Maguire was never a Jesuit but was ordained a diocesan priest for Philadelphia) (a history of the Catholic University of America, where Maguire taught while he was a diocesan priest - do a search for "Daniel C. Maguire" in the box on the left side of the page and you'll find confirmation of this)

I posted the comment that Maguire was never a Jesuit. The third comment offers conclusive corroboration. Why has the headline for the original posting not been corrected?
