Madeleine Albright, Mortara Distinguished Professor of Diplomacy for the School of Foreign Service and former Secretary of State, delivered a speech on terrorism, disease and U.S. foreign policy yesterday to more than 700 Georgetown students and faculty in Gaston Hall. The doors to Gaston were closed until 15 minutes before the speech began, leaving a line of students that stretched from Healy to Lauinger Library.
…Evoking examples from her missions to Africa while Secretary of State during the Clinton administration, Albright suggested solutions to the AIDS epidemic. She called for brave leaders, aggressive education campaigns and, in a statement Albright said was “bold at a Catholic university,” access to contraceptives.
I wonder if anybody walked out like they walked out on Cardinal Arinze when he simply reiterated Catholic truth. I knew when I saw the topic of this article that some where in it she would challenged Catholics to do something against the faith, I figured it would be abortion – well I was close. I really wish the statement she made was “bold at at Catholic university”, instead it is old at a Catholic university and only thing bold would be bold would be a call to chastity and the total forsaking of the culture of death.
