The Catholic Theological Society of America Has a " Conservative " Problem

Julie Hanlon Rubio who is is Associate Professor of Christian Ethics at St. Louis University has an important post over at Catholic Moral Theology on some recent news . See CTSA to Theologians: Embrace Your Conservative Colleagues

It appears the Catholic Theological Society of America (CTSA) realizes they have a conservative problem. That is they CTSA has not been very embracing of them . She goes into this at her post.

First it is striking that this is  still the situation after even the Pontificates of John Paul II and Benedict.

Further this is a worrisome sign as perhaps  to what goes on in the world of Catholic theological academia as to hiring , tenure , and who and what might be getting published.

However on the bright side side it appears they realized they have a problem and might be taking steps to correct it.
