Mainstream RC schools are a mess
Fr Gordon Anderson’s right on that one. But outside the university, a purpose of which is to debate every point of the catechism, how far should academic freedom go? There’s no such thing as ‘Catholic maths’ (though of course we believe on faith that in one instance something is three and one at the same time), ‘Jewish chemistry’ (the composition of Manischewitz wine: eew) or ‘Muslim physics’ so does it matter if non-believers teach those subjects? Active dissenters and open and notorious evil livers shouldn’t be hired of course.
