Fate of Seton Hall’s Gay Marriage Course Will Be Decided In the Closet

W. King Mott, an openly gay Seton Hall professor, will soon learn the fate of his course on same-sex marriage, which twenty students have signed up for. (There are still five open seats!) The future of the class, which has Newark Archbishop John J. Myers all sorts of upset, will be decided by a board subcommittee’s closed doors meetings that begin today. They’ll be making their decision without seeing a syllabus for the class, which the Board of Regents requested, but which Mott has not yet drafted. Naturally, we expect it to be a line-by-line copy of Lady Gaga 101.

      Is it stupid that people are complaining about this class, especially since they haven’t seen the syllabus? Yes. But it also seems stupid to complain about the Catholic church wanting to have a say in what gets taught at a Catholic university. If you don’t want religion getting in the way of your academics, don’t go to a school that was founded to spread a religion.

      I’m relieved to hear them say it’s not going to be a course… it’s sacrilegious. Period.
