Nun won't turn the other cheek in firing

"Riordan said she always kept an open mind when she counseled students of all religions and many nonbelievers on tough issues such as abortion, gay rights and premarital sex.
The nun fears her replacements will be less available to students and that the young clerics' more conservative views could turn troubled students away."

In the Long Island Catholic the story is presented as an attempt to make campus ministry part of the New Evangelization. Fr. Brian Barr talks of "dynamic Catholicism and dynamic orthodoxy" being a goal so this all sounds good.
