A paradox is a terrible thing to waste.

The problem at St. Xavier University, as laid out by the Tribune Thursday, is that it’s Catholic but not Catholic enough. Its administrators, explains reporter Manya Brachear, “insist that the school should be spared from attempts by the National Labor Relations Board to help adjunct faculty organize a union and push for a collective bargaining agreement to combat low wages and seek more stability on the job. But in a recent bold ruling, an NLRB official determined that the university doesn’t meet the criteria to qualify for religious immunity.”
