You may have heard about Jesuit-run Creighton U.’s recent invitation (and subsequent dis-invitation) of pro-euthanasia, pro-abortion speaker/writer Anne Lamott. You may have also heard President John Schlegel of Creighton then circulated a memo claiming that his change of heart happened, as he put it, “well before the bloggers latched upon the invitation,” as a result of “prayerful reflection upon reading her latest book.”
In a probing substantial post on the topic, Thomas Peters examines "Creighton U.'s Unfortunate History of Dissent" (American Papist, September 10, 2007), as well as the role of bloggers in the President's recent decision to disinvite Ms. Lamott. Interesting.
