Notre Dame Grad: University Failing in Duty to Bear Witness to Truth

Michael Bradley, who recently graduated from the University of Notre Dame with a bachelor’s degree in philosophy and theology, wrote at the Public Discourse that he believes the University is “failing to fulfill its pastoral duty to bear witness to the truth.”

Bradley is one of the founding members of the group Students for Child-Oriented Policy (SCOP) which, although upholding Catholic teaching on marriage, was recently denied recognition by the University. In addition to hosting a conference on the issue of marriage, SCOP called on President Father John Jenkins and the administration to publicly defend marriage.

In response, a number of students circulated a counter-petition urging the administration to refuse to recognize SCOP as a student club.
