Sometimes a Commotion Gets Attention and the Good Guys (or Gals) Win!

School reinstates Patricia Jannuzzi

I love what Professor Robert George had to say:
Princeton Professor Robert George, who had raised the alarm about Jannuzzi’s suspension, thanked the school in a comment on his Facebook page. 
“Sometimes---not often enough, but sometimes---justice is done and things come out right,” he said. “This was one of those times. I am grateful to Immaculata High School and Bishop Paul Bootkoski for doing the right thing. I suspect that Susan Sarandon and the ‘Real Housewives’ guy are feeling a bit less friendly towards them, which, to me, is something to be proud of."
Say a prayer of thanksgiving that this wonderful teacher will be back in the classroom where she belongs.

I’m very glad Mrs. Jannuzzi’s teaching position was reinstated, but I sure would like to know how she could have expressed the truth more charitably when we all know very well that the truth about same-sex "marriage" will quite simply not be tolerated. Does the understanding reached with Bishop Bootkoski have the effect of silencing her?

I think the short answer is probably, "yes." She no doubt will exercise serious self-censorship in the future.

So how was this a victory?

She got her job back and the powers that be were challenged by faithful Catholics and caved.

They cave in so often to the bad guys, I think the good guys have to take what victories we can. I'm sure Susan Sarandon and her leftist friends see it as a defeat and are hopping mad.

But, on the other hand, if she is silenced you have a point.
