Mandatum Cover-Up? - Tim Drake

Mandatum Cover-Up? — Part II: Georgetown - Tim Drake

The National Catholic Register is conducting an ongoing investigation of Catholic colleges and universities featured in U.S. News and World Report's college guide. Here we ask the question: Are parents allowed to know whether those who teach theology intend to teach in communion with the Church? Or has the opposite happened — is the canon law mandatum being used to protect dissenters?  Read more...

Mandatum Cover-Up? — Part III: Notre Dame - Tim Drake

Moral Illiteracy - William Kilpatrick

When the schools stop contributing to the fund of shared moral knowledge, the informal systems are put under enormous strain.
