If you haven’t already done so, please sign this petition in support of University of San Diego’s refusal to hire a dissident theologian to a Catholic theology teaching chair!

The theologian in question, Rosemary Radford Ruether, believes that abortion, homosexual behavior, women’s ordination, and referring to God as “Gaia” are all permissible.  Catholics do not, to put it very mildly.

While the initial goal was to have 4000 signatures by 3 Sept. (tomorrow), I believe the petition will remain open until 4000 signatures have been collected.  So please go sign and spread the word!

You don’t have to be Catholic to sign… if it makes sense to you that Catholic theology, at a Catholic university, should be taught by someone with Catholic beliefs, please show your support!
