to be fair to georgetown…

After my comments questioning the Catholicity of Georgetown, to be fair, I should also highlight that they do honor priests who aren’t as controversial as Fr. Drinan.
Georgetown President John J. DeGioia presented the President’s Medal to Father Thomas F. Stransky, C.S.P. The Paulist Father has worked greatly over the years with interfaith relations and was one of the principle drafters of the Vatican II document, Nostra Aetate.
I met Fr. Stransky when I was in Washington, DC last month since he’s been in DC for a short while now over the course of this lecture series. He’ll be returning back to the Tantur Institute in Isreal shortly. The Institute, founded after Vatican II to continue the discussion between Catholic, Orthodox and Protestants, is owned by the Vatican, administered by the University of Notre Dame and is directed by Paulists.
