If the level of nervous politeness I have received in my effort to respond to Declan Leary’s recent column, “Drag Queens and Jesuits,” is any indication, then he has created at least a minor PR headache for John Carroll...

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...

Over the past few weeks we’ve been subjected to some supremely ignorant and uninformed opinions by a student who’s naming is not warranted. I too am infuriated that his brazen hate speech is being published in th...
