Prominent Catholic scholar of Renaissance literature Anthony Esolen is under attack for daring to talk openly about the teachings of the Catholic faith.

The orthodox professor at the Dominican-led Providence College in Rhode Island is the author of many books, including a translation of Dante’s Divine Comedy.

Esolen recently penned two articles at Crisis magazine, the first in which he laments that his school – like many – has “succumbed to the totalitarian diversity cult.”

Esolen observes that the “celebrate diversity” culture crowd is “at odds with…the diversity of male and female to be resolved most dynamically and creatively in the union of man and woman in marriage.

The funny thing is that the Catholic Church, when it comes to racial diversity, really can't be matched by any Protestant church or denomination, if you look at it from a world-wide perspective and not just from an American one.

Additionally, although the Catholic Church does not approve of gay marriage, I know a lot of gay Catholics who still participate in the church and don't expect to get married in it. A professor at a Catholic school should teach Catholic doctrine. This is a free country, no one can force anyone over 18 to be a Catholic. If you don't like it, go to another church/school.
