Catholic Marquette University Hires Pro-Abortion Russ Feingold
Marquette University is finding itself on the wrong side of the pro-life debate as it has chosen to hire pro-abortion former Senator Russ Feingold. Feingold is no stranger to pro-life advocates in Wisconsin, as he racked up a strongly pro-abortion voting record and put people on the Supreme Court, as a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, who will continue the 53 million abortions seen under Roe v. Wade
[It's disingenuous, I believe to state that Marquette is "Catholic" - 'allegedly' Catholic might be a better way of saying it. Some so-called "Catholic" institutions are no more "Catholic" than a suburban mall. One might even suggest that they are even more "anti-Catholic, anti-Christian" than the some jihadists.]

YWCA loses Christianity from title (to better reflect its role in society?)
The YWCA, which was set up in 1855 to help young women going to London for the first time, has now become "Platform 51". The name was chosen because 51 per cent of people are female and "women use us as a platform for having their say and for helping them into the next stage of their lives"...
