A sign of life in the American church

Archdiocese of Newark has Seton Hall fire its top campus-ministry priest for homosexualist Facebook post. The American church's slow turnaround returning to orthodoxy is under way. It's like turning around an oil tanker or stopping a train. Even the benighted mainstream Catholic colleges are getting the Pope Benedict effect (outlasting Benedict). Apparently even after Land O'Lakes (in which Catholic colleges gave up church control to get government funds, or why besides "Sports!" the American mainstream loved Theodore Hesburgh of Notre Dame so much: apparently the acceptable way to be an American Catholic is to follow certain school sports and get drunk on St. Patrick's Day), dioceses have some control over colleges in them. About time those old campus ministers were sent packing.
