Catholics celebrated the Feast of the Annunciation on Monday, when the Virgin Mary said “yes” to God and Christ was conceived in her womb through the power of the Holy Spirit. But at the University of Notre Dame, a number of students spent Monday night on campus listening to former Texas State Senator Wendy Davis describe the benefits for women of choosing abortion or using contraception.
She was sponsored by Notre Dame University's Department of Gender Studies:
Gender Studies is an interdisciplinary academic program in the College of Arts and Letters at Notre Dame. Gender Studies analyzes the significance of gender—and the cognate subjects of sex, sexuality, race, ethnicity, class, religion, and nationality—in all areas of human life, especially in the social formation of human identities, practices, and institutions.
Villanova's first national championship in three decades led to multiple arrests, hospitalizations and a horse assault as celebrations spilled out into the streets late Monday night and early Tuesday morning.
The University was founded by the Order of St. Augustine. I assume it was the Hippo Augustine, not the Canterbury one.
