Fascinating Use of a Catholic University's Funds

Marquette University, an allegedly Catholic institution is being sued for firing an instructor who expressed disapproval of gay marriage.  They fired him:
It’s not often that a university buys Google advertisements to make its case in a lawsuit.
Yet that’s what the Catholic university in Milwaukee did ahead of next week’s oral arguments before the state’s highest court in a case that bears on academic freedom and due process.
 John McAdams and a slew of academic-freedom groups are challenging Marquette’s indefinite, unpaid suspension of the conservative political science professor after he criticized a fellow instructor for refusing to let a student disagree with gay marriage in her classroom.
This sounds like an incompetent attempt to bias the court.

There's a saying: "If you were on trial for being a Christian, would there be enough evidence for a conviction?'  Marquette is safe, I think.

Too many "Catholic" institutions are no longer behaving Catholic - the disease of political correctness, and the need for virtue signalling, is virulent and widespread.
