This article in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, about an adjunct professor reduced to poverty, is heart-rending, but it points to an on-going scandal at Duquesne University. The school refuses to let its adjunct professors unionize. The Cardinal Newman Society has championed the school, recognizing that there are troublesome religious liberty issues raised by the National Labor Relations Board having too much say about what does and does not happen at a religious institution. But, unsurprisingly, the Cardinal Newman Society has nary a word of criticism for the administration at Duquesne which should follow Catholic teaching and allow its adjunct professors to join a union. Shame on them and shame on the Cardinal Newman Society, which only calls for the enforcement of orthodoxy on issues it cares about, not the full range of Catholic teaching.
