When Russ Feingold represented Wisconsin in the Senate, he voted for taxpayer funding of abortion and opposed any ban on gruesome practice of partial-birth abortion.
Thankfully, last November, the voters in Wisconsin said they didn’t want him anymore.
Ah, but have no fear! Marquette Law gave Russ a call. As I mentioned earlier this year: Marquette Law hired a man as a teacher who voted to warp our laws against defending little children in the womb.
To the disappointment of liberal Democrats, Russ Feingold announced this morning that he won’t be challenging Scott Walker in a race for governor nor will he run for the Senate seat vacated by retiring Democrat Herb Kohl.
But guess what he cited as a reason not to run?
Teaching law during the spring semester at Marquette University Law School was a joy. The Marquette Law School is a thriving academic institution situated in a beautiful new building, Eckstein Hall. I found my time with the dean, staff, faculty, and especially the students at Marquette to be a terrific first experience in teaching law. I am pleased that I have been asked to return to teach full-time this fall and look forward to doing so.
I didn’t realize it was the responsibility of Catholic universities to be Full Employment Program for ousted pro-abortion Senators.
Is it better that he is hired by a law school in Milwaukee rather than voting in Washington in a way that harms us all? Perhaps. But this isn’t the solution either.
If Catholics are to evangelize to the world, we have to clean up our own house. We have to be true to the Gospel of Life. And to hire an abortion supporter completely undermines that. I mean, that’s so obvious.
Could we imagine Marquette hiring a racist? What if Marquette hired a man who believed that women shouldn’t be able to purchase property? Imagine the outcry.
So why is it okay for a Catholic university to hire someone who fought against any attempt to protect our youngest brothers and sisters from death by the hands of an abortionist?
It’s stunning that the same university that started Project Rachel is now hiring abortion supporters. Unreal.
Hey alumni, don’t send Marquette another dime.
