Faculty Academic Senate Set to Endorse Domestic Partner Benefits for Gay and Lesbian Faculty

At 4:15 today, the University Academic Senate is scheduled to take up a committee proposal to provide gay and lesbian “partners” of Marquette faculty and staff the same benefits and married spouses.

We won’t be there, unfortunately, since Political Science is hiring and our candidate is doing a job talk.

It’s virtually certain that the proposal will be approved.

Not only is the Marquette faculty generally liberal and rather secular, the faculty politicians in the Academic Senate are even more so.

A committee considering the issue voted 7-2 in favor of domestic partner benefits.

The vote will be a show of hands, so expect any members of the Senate who have reservations to be very reticent to show opposition.

The gay lobby on campus has shown itself willing to attack and demean those who oppose its agenda. It will be a real show of courage if even a substantial minority of members vote against the proposal.

How could a Catholic University do this?
I'll answer that with a question.

How can Catholics/Jsuits run a University if a University is supposed to be geared for Truth & by being "Catholic" already have a "Truth"?
The answer to the second question precludes the a Catholic organization from extending these benefits.
The relavist catholics

Just curious - which groups on campus are planning to target those who are not in favor of the benefits? And what are they planning to do?

And what are they planning to do?

Basically, they attack, demean and deride people who disagree.

Check this.

And this.
