Catholic prof under fire at Providence College for opposing ‘diversity’ agenda

PROVIDENCE, Rhode Island, November 3, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – A powerful minority of left-wing students at small, still somewhat more than nominally Catholic Providence College are calling for the sacking of prominent Catholic author and literature professor Anthony Esolen for criticizing what his editor at Crisis Magazinecalled “the Totalitarian Diversity Cult.”

Dr. Esolen, who has published articles at LifeSiteNews, is the author of 16 books and has another due next year titled Out of the Ashes: Rebuilding American Culture. But he has provoked an irate response from campus radicals after criticizing a certain strain of diversity politics as detrimental to the true purpose of a university, in two articles for Crisis Magazine.
