American Catholic Unviersities Theologically Unsustainable

Edit: they're good errand boys and girls for "hope and change", but when it comes to presenting the Church's actual teaching, well, you just have to laugh at it, that's all.

Again we say: rather than promoting an agenda to determine how everyone else's resources are allocated, why not do what you were originally commissioned to do in the first place?


SUSTAINABILITY AND CATHOLIC HIGHER EDUCATION:
A TOOLKIT FOR MISSION INTEGRATION
WASHINGTON, D.C. (August 29, 2011)—As Catholic colleges and universities
across the country begin a new school year, eight national Catholic organizations
are publishing and promoting an exciting new resource, Sustainability and
Catholic Higher Education: A Toolkit for Mission Integration. This new
resource will help schools strengthen ongoing commitments to live out Catholic
mission and “cultivate and care for” (Genesis 2:15) God’s good gift of Creation
through mission-based sustainability.

The Toolkit is being co-sponsored by the Catholic Coalition on Climate Change
(www.catholicclimatecovenant.org), the Association of Catholic Colleges and
Universities(www.accunet.org), the Association of Jesuit Colleges and
Universities (www.ajcunet.edu), the Association of Franciscan Colleges and
Universities (www.franciscancollegesuniversities.org), the Lasallian Association
of College and University Presidents (www.ialu.net), Catholic Relief Services
College (www.crscollege.org), the Catholic Campus Ministry Association
(www.ccmanet.org) and the National Catholic Student Coalition
(www.catholicstudent.org).
These organizations hope that Catholic colleges and universities will use the Toolkit to strengthen Catholic mission and publicly commit themselves to
mission-based sustainability by becoming a Catholic Climate Covenant Partner
(http://catholicclimatecovenant.org/about-us/covenant-partners/) as Saint
