Stained glass ceiling

Timely, comprehensive piece:
That review was requested by the Rev. John J. Myers, archbishop of Newark, who denounced the course [on the history of marriage] for seeking "to promote as legitimate a train of thought that is contrary to what the church teaches."
Really, non-Catholic "trains of thought" are illegitimate? The entire Marquette philosophy department must be hellbound. The alerting phrase, "an archbishop said" is a useful cue to stop paying attention.

And what human insists on being introduced as "the reverend."

Probably not even Jesus (who wasn't a Catholic either).
