Marymount Manhattan College-Not Catholic?

The Archdiocese of New York has determined that Marymount Manhattan College—which has been under protest by the Cardinal Newman Society for inviting pro-abortion Sen. Hillary Clinton to give its commencement address and receive an honorary degree on May 20—is no longer a Catholic institution.

This is the fourth time since the late Pope John Paul II issued Ex Corde Ecclesiae, the apostolic constitution on Catholic universities, that a bishop has declared an historically Catholic college or university to be not Catholic. The three colleges previously declared no longer Catholic include Marist College in Poughkeepsie, New York, and Nazareth College and Saint John Fisher College, both in Rochester, New York.
Why did this took so long?

Now what about the other universities and colleges which lay claim to being Catholic but who opposed the Church openly and defiantly?
