A professor in the Continuing Education department at the University of Central Florida has been using e-mail to send anti-Catholic “humorous” statements to her students, as well as to others. When this was brought to the attention of her superiors, the league was extended an apology.
The league was upset with such comments as: a) “When Jesus broke the bread at the Last Supper he said, `Take this all of you and eat it, for this is my body….’ He did not say, `Eat me.'” b) “The Virgin Mary is not referred to as the `Mary with the Cherry.'”
The league is pleased that two school officials met with the professor and that they successfully urged her to send an apology to her students. We were also assured that this would not happen again.
