For anyone who works at a Catholic university - perhaps I should extend this to all levels of Catholic education, but I think that the problem is more pronounced at universities - do you have a hard time as a faithful, orthodox Catholic and if so, how do you deal with it?
Granted, I work for a Catholic law school and lawyers are notoriously self-important & self-righteous, but sometimes I wonder why there are so many professors & other people who work at Catholic universities who are so openly critical of the Church. I am actually talking about *Catholics - *people whom I know were at least raised Catholic or who claim to be Catholic. They seem to be a lot worse than non-Catholics, and at times I despair that there’s no way of countering or correcting them because they think of themselves as so enlightened and superior to the rest of us.
I should also note that I am the daughter of a professor, so I am a little too well-acquainted with this ( thankfully not from my parent, who is a practicing Catholic).
