As one college almost goes full Marxist, another is a voice for human decency


Recommended Posts


The Jesuits were once renowned for their intellectual rigor.  Any person who graduated from a Jesuit-run institution was presumptively well educated, morally centered, and capable of reasoning.  Marquette University, a Jesuit institution, has slipped from that standard, for it attacked an incoming freshman for supporting Trump.  However, the bracing honesty coming from New Saint Andrews College signals that there's still hope for a rigorous Christian education in America.

In 1881, the Jesuits founded Marquette University, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  To Marquette's credit, although established as a single-sex men's college, in 1909, it became the first coeducational Catholic university in the world.  It is consistently one of the more highly ranked American colleges.

Don't let the college rankings fool you, though.  The Jesuits are among the most liberal groups within Catholicism.  That is their right.  It becomes a problem, though, when a Jesuit institution such as Marquette lets an incoming college freshman know that it might rescind its offer because she supports President Trump.  Marquette backed away from this position only when the story went public.

The College Fix initially reported the story as follows:

Soon to be Marquette University freshman Samantha Pfefferle has yet to even step foot on campus, yet she said she is already facing possible dismissal from the school.


The threat to cancel Pfefferle's admission came after she posted a video to her account on the popular social media site TikTok showing her support for President Donald Trump.

In the video that sent leftist tempers soaring, Pfefferle dances joyously before a Trump 2020 sign and a Marquette 2024 sign, along with captions revealing the prejudice she faces for supporting Trump::snip:
