- Anna Maria College, a Catholic college in Massachusetts, finally heard pro-abortion rights Victoria Reggie Kennedy speak, according to news reports.
- As reported by The Cardinal Newman Society in March, Anna Maria College in Paxton, Mass., honored the wishes of Worcester Bishop Robert McManus and disinvited the widow of Sen. Ted Kennedy as commencement speaker because of concerns about conflicts with Catholic moral teaching. Then the College asked Bishop McManus not to attend the commencement ceremony, claiming he would be a “distraction.”
- And now the College re-invited Kennedy to speak on campus, this time as part of its fall symposium on “Faith and the Public Square: Balancing Religious Beliefs with the Common Good.”
- Kennedy reportedly received a standing ovation from the crowd when she stood to speak.
