From Fr. William Kurz, commenting on this case
This is unbelievably nasty. No matter what one’s political views, Marquette U. should be deluged with angry protests over apparently threatening to withhold admittance from an incoming freshman student who dared to openly support the current president of the United States. This is out-and-out fascism. Is Marquette not going to allow freedom of speech and opinion and dare to call themselves a Catholic University?
I taught at Marquette for over 40 years, won a university teaching award, am about to receive a Festschrift from international scholars honoring my scholarship, over 20,000 international scholars continue to download my scholarly articles. . . . Marquette has got to put a resounding stop to this and all other forms of censoring students’ political views, and the students (and possibly MU admissions personnel) involved should be disciplined.
