Marquette Warrior Defeated in Court

Edit: we've been following the travails of the most Catholic man on the Marquette University faculty, who isn't even Catholic, but he has our sympathy.  And given this kind of Stalinist treatment, who could blame him for refusing to convert? Notice, with all the navel gazing going on in supposedly Catholic Traditionalist circles for a while, there are no articles complaining about the Marxist and uncharitable tone among Catholic insititutions or among "mainstream" Catholics and their Gathering Spaces being rigid, pathologically mean and generally indifferent as well as spineless in their magazines and well-endowed periodicals.

Here's the link to the judgement.

Professor Sues Formerly Catholic and Jesuit University

Edit: as reported in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, it looks like the "Jesuit" University of Marquette is going to be sued for their Catholic shaming of one of the last, if not THE last, conservative professors on the faculty. [As we've just learned, one if the last conservative professors on their faculty isn't even Catholic, although his witness is certainly inspiring, and he is being treated unjustly. At least he's not posing as Catholic like the school's administration.] The administration posted this delusional statement, which is worthy of the highest standards of fairness, justice and humanity of those in charge of the Soviet justice system during the post-war anti-Jewish purges:
"We welcome this issue being addressed  in court, where the public will hear a comprehensive account of Dr. McAdams' of our former graduate student, rather than the select details he has handpicked to promote his false narrative," Marquette said in a statement. "Once all the facts are made clear, Marquette fully expects that the decision to suspend him will be upheld."
Biography from Wiki:

John C. McAdams (born October 26, 1945)[1] is an American associate professor of political science at Marquette University.[2] McAdams teaches courses on American politics and public policy, voter behavior, and the John F. Kennedy assassination; he runs a website on the assassination and has published a book on the subject, JFK Assassination Logic: How to Think about Claims of Conspiracy (2011).[3] He describes himself as "a debunker by temperament" 
A portal with a view onto some of the frankly pathological behavior traits of the school's administration about which I find hard to locate words to describe as anything but childish or effeminate.  Men don't behave this way,  From Doctor McAdams' blog, Marquette Warrior:

Marquette has now released the Report of the Faculty Hearing Committee that reviewed our case. Interestingly, they did it without our permission, in spite of insisting for months that they could not do it without our permission. 

It's important to remember in times like these that we're never really alone.

Marquette Professor Being Fired for Being Catholic

Edit: the faculty advisors of an allegedly Catholic University have voted unanimously to suspend the last Catholic faculty member on their staff without pay starting on April 1st and subsequently expect him to admit he was doing wrong in defending the Catholic Faith at a Catholic University as one of several humiliating conditions for reinstatement.

The announcement was sent to him on Holy Thursday. Very fitting and a great way to compassionate his Savior, but this  injustice, this evil is surely enough to fool even the elect. 

We live in terrible times and it seems they will get worse. What a wonderful thing it is to be persecuted for His sake but we pray for this courageous man's relief and the good of his family as these Bolscheviks divide his garments among them...

[Marquette Warrior] It was announced Thursday,  which was (doubtless intentionally) the eve of the Good Friday holiday, and in the middle of March Madness. Marquette has decided how to punish this blogger for a post that revealed how an instructor in the Philosophy Department bullied a student who wanted to express his opposition to gay marriage in class. He was told “you don’t have a right in this class to make homophobic comments,” and further that it would be “offensive” to any gay students in the class if any such opinion was expressed. 

Marquette reacted by telling us we would be stripped of tenure and fired

Evil Jesuit University Fires Last Catholic on its Faculty?

Edit: in an ongoing battle, one of the last remaining conservative voices on the faculty of the allegedly Catholic, Jesuit, Marquette University has been fired.  We're linking here to an article by the estimable Austen Ruse who continues to do yeoman's work on this subject, on which no objective criticism is available apparently, at America's "Catholic" Universities.
Here's the article and here's hoping that at least one Marquette alum will stop supporting this intellectually impoverished institution which continues, despite all information to the contrary, that it's a Catholic school.
In future we're going to be linking more frequently to Professor McAdams pugilistic and unapologetic blog:
In a lengthy letter, Dean Richard Hotz told McAdams, “…your conduct clearly and substantially fails to meet the standards of personal and professional excellence that generally characterizes University faculties. As a result, your value to this academic institution is substantially impaired.”
For years McAdams has been a conservative thorn in the side of liberal Marquette. On his Marquette Warrior blog, he has chronicled the liberal foibles of Marquette faculty, staff and students.
At issue this time was a blog post McAdams published last November 9th in which he described a classroom situation where Cheryl Abbate, a junior faculty member, shut down a student who wanted to discuss his opposition to same-sex marriage because she considered it an unacceptable topic in her ethics class and would be on par with a discussion favoring racism or sexism. She also said such a discussion would offend any gay students in class.

Msgr Bux Doesn't Think +Mueller's Error is Significant: Daniel Maguirre Permitted to Deny Vatican II

Edit:  Perhaps you might remember when Kung became a Sedevacantist.  Well, now it appears that Daniel MacGuire is joining the ranks and all of this in contrast to an amazing mis-statement by Msgr Nicola Bux.

Now that Msgr. Nicola Bux has entered the fray, insisting that Archbishop Mueller's statements  in contradiction of the Dogma of the perpetual virginity isn't really a contradiction, or at least not worth worrying about, I thought I'd describe a man who does think traditional Catholic teachings, apparently defended and promoted now by the Catholic Bishops of the USA now put themselves outside of the Catholic Church, according to the putatively and his impunity, Father Daniel Macguire of the Marquette University, yet another allegedly Catholic Jesuit school.

How is it that Daniel Maguire is allowed to ignore Vatican II and actually anathematize the Bishops of the US for simply restating a Catholic belief about marriage and sodomy? 

This is what Msgr Bux has written, incredibly as reported by the traditionalist website, Rorate:
The Catechism of the Catholic Church states that the physical aspect of virginity is due entirely to the fact that Jesus was conceived without human seed, but by the action of the Holy Spirit. It is a divine work that exceeds all understanding and human possibility. The Church professes the real and perpetual Virginity of Mary but does not enter into physical details; neither does it seem that the Councils and the Fathers stated otherwise.
So, you're PRETTY sure?  Does not SEEM that the Fathers state otherwise? This is the following from where a Mariology is cited by a Dominican [emphasis ours].  There are no defide dogmatic statements without Patristic substantiation.  We'll find them.  I believe St. John Chrysostom too begin with:

(Cathcon- I can always send the new CDF a copy of Mariologia by Father Benedictus Henricus Merkelbach OP. It has three extensive chapters on these matters.
The first begins
Dogma fidei est Matrem Dei fuisse Virginem ante partem et in ipsa conceptione Filii sui
(it is a dogma of the Faith that the Mother of God remained a Virgin before birth and in the Conception of her Son.

The second

Dogma fidei est Matrem Dei esse virginem in partu (it is a dogma of the Faith that the Mother of God remained a Virgin at birth)

The third Dogma fidei est Matrem Dei esse virginem post partu (it is a dogma of the Faith that the Mother of God remained a Virgin after birth)

In summary!

Triplex Virginitas Mariae scil ante partum, in partu, est post partum est de fide. He can return it only if a a letter is attached saying that he gives assent to the teaching of the Church in all ages but our own).

Contrary to what Msgr Bux is suggesting, the dogmas denied by Archbishop Mueller are DE FIDE, which means they are required of belief of every Catholic now living.  Anyone who denies it is at least holding a position that is materially, if not pertinaciously and therefore formal, heretical position.

It is interesting to contrast this current misunderstanding with another false position by the long-time and unpunished Father Daniel Maguire SJ from the Badger Catholic, as follows:

Daniel Maguire, the theology professor at Marquette University, seems to like getting media attention. He certainly gets it… often! And his friends in the media are more-than-willing accomplices. 
Last month, Maguire wrote in an email to The Daily Beast“The bishops will stand with Dolan and the U.S. Catholic Conference, but on this issue, they are in moral schism since most in the Church have moved on [to] a more humane view on the rights of those whom God has made gay.” 
Now, a month later, having been out of the news for a while, he’s quoted in The Columbus Dispatch“There’s a moral schism going on in the Catholic [C]hurch, and the bishops are the schismatics, broken from the laity and theologians.”

We can only wonder in amazement that priests and Bishops who not only accept the teachings of the Vatican Council but hold the office of the Holy Father more obediently than most if not all the Bishops allegedly in union with the Roman Church,  are somehow outside of the Church.

It seems to us, Msgr Bux's protestations not withstanding, that the only real Catholics in the world are often cast out in the darkness, or dying unmourned in remote places ignored by the intelligent newspapers and enlightened minds.

Marquette Administration Shuts Down Novus Ordo "Latin" Mass

Editor:  The Jesuits hate the Mass of All Ages and the fruits it produces so much that they'll even shut down a Mass that just looks like it.

Recommendation:  since you don't need the approval of an Ordinary, just go ahead and use the 1962 Missal.

Here's the report from Marquette Warrior:

We have heard for several days that the French Honor Society would be sponsoring a mass tomorrow night. It would be the “Latin Mass” we were told, but with parts in French.

It was to be led by Rev. Canon Olivier Meney, who is the “go to” guy for the Latin Mass in southeastern Wisconsin.

Indeed, just a few minutes ago we got the flyer for the event.

But now it has been cancelled. We confirmed that with Rev. Meney’s secretary, and with Emily Schumacher-Novak in Campus Ministry.

H/t to Badger Catholic.
