“Georgetown is the oldest Catholic university in the country. Part of Catholic identity is to be in union with the bishops,” Cardinal Dolan said.
“When they would invite someone that is so dramatically at odds with one of the central tenets of the faith, that does bother us,” Dolan said. “We’re disappointed [about the invitation], but we’re not shocked. Because unfortunately some of our Catholic universities — thank God not many — have been moving toward a more secular model,
where they would take their cues from what’s happening in contemporary events instead of the timeless wisdom of the church. I’m afraid that’s what might be happening here.”
