    is that the policy is stupid and out of touch with the real world, including the way the school's mostly Catholic student body lives. The diarist himself noted that they chose to attend that school and said nothing about lawsuits or anything.

    A few commenters have raised First Amendment issues. I am not among them. My only points have been that this "rule" is stupid and that, from personal experience, I know these "Sean O'Malley values" are not widely shared "Catholic values" among everyday people of college age. That's why I am not equating "at variance with this just-announced rule" and "in the wrong."

    Republicans...think the American standard of living is a fine thing--so long as it doesn't spread to all the people. And they admire the Government of the United States so much that they would like to buy it. Harry S. Truman

      It is a stupid rule since it doesn't apply in today's time and age.  

      In my view, the rule is a rule of a private university and I feel that they have every right to have that rule.  

      Personally, I wouldn't want to go to a school that had those type of rules and hence the reason I did not attend a Catholic school.   I also think the students who chose a private Catholic school for their higher education needs, shouldn't be surprised at all that handing out BC in the halls and dorms of a private Catholic school would be the least bit acceptable.  Matter of fact, I am almost certain they knew it was unacceptable.  If by some chance they didn't know... again, they do know now.  So should it happen again, they would undoubtedly be in the wrong.
