Declan, In response to your most recent column, “Loud and Way Too Proud.” Let’s take a moment to shift our perspective just a little bit. I hope that isn’t too much of me to ask, I wouldn’t want to strain your mind...

I write this as an alumna that hopes to see John Carroll succeed: I am mortified by the way in which you espouse hatred on campus under the guise of being a “true” Catholic. “True” Catholicism is not synonymous wit...
