Therefore every scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven is like a householder who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old.
What is this about, Father? I saw he'd been dragged out of a lecture, but allegedly for an email claiming not to be able to predict the future... That can't be right...?
A Year's Tuition Fees. With an apostrophe.But for once I might forgive them.
I note that another member of the department publicly supported Call To Action, and signed the notorious Times letter recently alongside Tina the Tank Engine. Will SMUG security be escorting her from the premises while she is engaged in lecturing her rapt audience on her specialism in ecofeminist theology? That would be a tragic loss to plastic Catholics, everywhere - although there is presumably an argument to be made against plastic catholicism on the basis of sustainability, which the eminent theologian will no doubt cover at length on P94 of her next letter to the Tablet. As an aspiring Eco feminist currently on strike in protest at the toxic chemicals and demeaning status involved in housewifery, I look forward with anticipation to a new era in which outmoded concepts such as Christology are removed from the syllabus at SMUG, and replaced with exciting new diverse outreach to oppressed females such as myself.
Of course while chasing poster pasters they will be leaving sound teachers alone. Thaat must be a good thing!
Students misbehaving? http://www.indcatholicnews.com/news.php?viewStory=21088 St Mary's students hold silent vigil... More than 50 students held a four-hour silent vigil in a corridor outside a governors' meeting at St Mary's University College in Twickenham yesterday. The students were voicing their concern over the sudden suspension of Dr Anthony Towey, head of the Theology, Philosophy and History. Dr Towey was removed by security men half way through a first year Christology lecture he was giving. (See links to earlier ICN stories below.) They were also protesting about a proposal by the principal, Professor Philip Esler to merge the Theology, Philosophy and History school with the school of Communication, Culture and Creative Arts as of this month.The students have asked the governors for a moratorium on the decision for one year, in order to have a proper consultation on the plan. They are also calling for the reinstatement of Dr Towey.One student told ICN: "This was very shocking for the students in Dr Towey's class. They didn't know what was going on. "Another student said: "The day Dr Towey was removed was the second anniversary of the Pope's visit. At the beginning of the Year of Faith the merger plan feels like an attack on our faith, and everything that is special about St Mary's. Its very distressing."Courses now cost £8000 a year, so we are stakeholders and should be consulted on major changes like this. There are some students who are considering leaving."When the students first arrived for the vigil the security men told them to leave and also banned a journalist from taking pictures. After negotiations with the governors they were allowed to remain.One student said: "This silent vigil is quite a contrast to the rough treatment we have had from the management and the security."On their Facebook page a student has written: "We stayed for over four hours, the governors came out a lot later than expected and didn't say anything. There will be an official statement tomorrow, that's all we know. So now, we wait."
I see Eamon Duffy has resigned... http://www.thetablet.co.uk/latest-news/4581
