Another Catholic Institution Escapes Shame

Siena College, a Franciscan institution in New York, was scheduled to host Widney Brown, a local pro-abortion speaker, to give a talk on campus.  He would have spoken on "The Progress for Human Rights in a Politically Challenged World".  A talk like this from a pro-abortion speaker would not have been worth the spit produced in its utterance.

The group TFP Student Action took the lead on preventing this debacle.  After their online announcement, the campus received approximately 3,000 phone calls and emails urging cancellation of the talk.  Happily, the college president heeded the message.

We congratulate TFP Student Action and those who took the time to raise their voices.  Let's all take encouragement and example from them.
