I was unjust to him ... Mr Orator spoke well. He spoke very positively about S Edmund Campion. And he did refer to the closing down of Benets; and he referred to it with regret; and he expressed a hope that it might only be in hibernation. Bravissimo! Or Eugepae!
May I remind those with an interest in traditional Catholic Ethics (or in Oxford ... or in Women ...) of the recent book The Women are up to something by Benjamin Lipscomb. One of the four women Oxford philosophers it describes is the Elizabeth Anscomb who nobly attempted to block the conferring at Encaenia of an honorary doctorate on President Truman ... who, she so rightly pointed out, was a war criminal.
These four Oxford women philosophers were not all Catholics, but they did all make a contribution to the thesis that there is such a thing as the objectively evil. As such, they deserve to be celebrated as important prophets of Veritatis Splendor.
