One decade after the U.S. Catholic bishops prohibited Catholic honors and honorary speaking platforms for public opponents of Catholic teaching at Catholic institutions, The Cardinal Newman Society has identified at least 20 Catholic colleges and universities that are hosting scandalous speakers and honorees at commencement ceremonies in 2014.

That represents nearly 10 percent of America’s Catholic colleges and a sudden increase in the number of commencement scandals beyond the six reported by The Cardinal Newman Society last year.  The Society’s concerns peaked in 2006 with 24 Catholic colleges.

This week, in a SPECIAL REPORT, we reveal a dramatic spike in scandalous commencement speakers and honorees at Catholic colleges.  The 20 colleges cited in our report exceeds the number in 2004—the same year, one decade ago, when the U.S. bishops banned Catholic honors and honorary platforms for opponents of Catholic teaching.

We should be alarmed, but also more dedicated than ever to our important task!  The trend has been toward Catholic renewal—we’ve seen a steady decline in commencement scandals over several years, with just six in 2013.  But there are professors and wayward educators who think the time is right to return to the dissent and confusion of prior decades.  The Cardinal Newman Society was founded to escape that darkness and restore truth and fidelity to Catholic education.
