Loyola Marymount University is currently interviewing two ‘finalist’ candidates for the position of Dean of the Bellarmine College of Liberal Arts.
However, it is amazing that both of these candidates have worked for Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the United States. And one of the candidates has also endorsed legal efforts to redefine marriage.
To see why these candidates are unsuitable for this ‘mission critical‘ position go to these pages:

The Dean of the Bellarmine College of Liberal Arts should have a solid record of support for the mission and identity of a Catholic university.
Please sign this letter to President Burcham letting him know that now is the time to hire for mission.
And do contact others who share your concern for the Catholic identity of Loyola Marymount University.
Pope Francis recently gave this message to representatives of the University of Notre Dame:
“In my Exhortation on the Joy of the Gospel, I stressed the missionary dimension of Christian discipleship, which needs to be evident in the lives of individuals and in the workings of each of the Church’s institutions…Essential in this regard is the uncompromising witness of Catholic universities to the Church’s moral teaching, and the defense of her freedom, precisely in and through her institutions, to uphold that teaching as authoritatively proclaimed by the magisterium of her pastors.”
