An essay on making Christian worship "Muslim-friendly" was published on the Concordia University--Portland website, but then pulled when some Lutherans noticed it. Someone had the good sense to make a copy.
However, in a pointed message to scholars who stray from church teachings, the pope stressed that Catholic doctrine is paramount. "Any appeal to the principle of academic freedom in order to justify positions that contradict the faith and the teaching of the Church would obstruct or even betray the university's identity and mission," he said.
"Teachers and administrators," the pope continued, "whether in universities or schools, have the duty and privilege to ensure that students receive instruction in Catholic doctrine and practice."
Wouldn't it be magnificent if our leaders spoke with the same conviction regarding Lutheran doctrine?
