With the ongoing stramash surrounding Gordon College and its accreditation, the pressure is building on institutions of higher education with religious affiliations. The only question now seems to be: how many will stand firm? If an institution as prestigious and powerful as Notre Dame has fallen to the silver-tongued aesthetes of contemporary political taste, that is most worrying. A cloud certainly, and that somewhat larger than a man’s hand, I would suggest.
