The Thing About Watchdogs . . .

. . . is that sooner or later they'll bite their friends too!

And this one is just dripping with irony! The university that sold itself as the REAL Catholic university now finds itself subject to a listing of its "liturgical abuses" and firing their orthodox, traditional provost for not being a charismaniac (that's what they used to call us back in the day when I was involved in the charismatic renewal).

Maybe Ave Maria is starting to realize that being a Catholic university--even one that will please all their supporters--is not so easy as they once thought?!

Update: After considerable protest, Ave Maria has "unfired" Father Fessio and named him instead "theologian in residence."

Were they actually able to get some sort of accreditation? Last I heard, they'd run afoul with the organizations that do such things. Then again what do I know? I chose my schools for academic rigor, not the guise of orthodoxy.
