A Catholic-college prez defends the ridiculously indefensible

On Valentine's Day, some school administrators were focused not on chocolate valentines full of sweets but on another v word.

Yesterday an e-mail went around to Loyola University (New Orleans) supporters from the school's president. It was a defense of the school allowing a production of the Vagina Monologues on campus.

Father Kevin William Wildes, the school's president, goes into the usual knee-jerk free-expression and diversity muck in his letter — "Loyola University, like any university, is committed to the free expression of ideas and the rigors of debate." (Excuse me, Father, but is there really anything special about your school if it's not that it is a Catholic institution of higher education?
