Matt Abbot has an update to a previous column.
In a previous column, I reported that Loyola University Chicago School of Law will, on Oct. 30, 2004, give the ‘St. Robert Bellarmine Award’ to Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan, an avowed pro-abortionist.
An update: A reliable source has informed me that Francis Cardinal George, O.M.I., Archbishop of Chicago, contacted the university to implore its administration to cancel the award.
Loyola reportedly has refused the cardinal’s request.
Concerned Catholics who wish to contact Loyola University Chicago School of Law to express their concerns about this latest development can send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
On the positive side it is nice to see Cardinal George contacting them about this matter.
