Hire this man
Perhaps the Holy Cross fathers at UND should consider hiring Fr. John Pawlikowski:
Father John Pawlikowski, director of Catholic-Jewish studies at Chicago's Catholic Theological Union in Hyde Park, was lecturing in France when Ramadan's appointment was announced. "A group of Catholic moderates raised the issue quite strongly with me," he tells me. "They wanted to know why Notre Dame was so naive as to hire Tariq Ramadan, who they claimed gives quite inflammatory talks to poor Muslims in the poverty-stricken suburbs of Paris."
At least Fr. Pawlikowski listened to the critics of Ramadan, unlike the UND administration.
The article continues with a discussion of the Chicago Tribune's treatment of Daniel Pipes this past summer re: the Ramadan affair.
