The Persecution of Professor Esolen

Anthony Esolen stands firmly in that great Catholic tradition of liberal learning. A college whose leadership is committed to that tradition would celebrate his contributions—it wouldn’t coddle his persecutors.

CHR Comment: An interesting though odd rant about Roman Catholic higher education. The author defends Prof. Esolen without providing any clear statement about the issues at stake, just that the professor raised questions about “diversity.” Therefore, I have added a link to a second article in The American Conservative where Esolen is interviewed about the controversy, which involves accusations of racism and issues of Catholic identity and cultural engagement.
