IMPORTANT RELATED ARTICLE: “Immoral Conduct” by Religious Sister at Ave Maria University

September 9, 2010
On Wednesday, September 8, 2010 I sent a brief media inquiry containing three questions for Nicholas J. Healy, Jr., President of Ave Maria University, regarding the lesbian “immoral conduct” scandal involving the AMU-endorsed ‘Home of the Mother”–that led to the expulsion of this religious group from campus:
At approximately 4:45pm I contacted his office to confirm his receipt of my media inquiry. Mr. Healy answered the phone himself:
NICK HEALY: May I ask what this is in reference to?
MMdeS: It’s in reference to the incident that was reported yesterday regarding Hogar de la Madre. I sent you a brief letter with three brief questions. It’s in regard to an article that I’m working on, to be published tonight.
[Upon reading my questions]:
NICK HEALY: OK, well, I can answer these. The first one…
MMdeS: Would you mind, Mr. Healy, it would be better if you could just respond to it by e-mail.
NICK HEALY: I’m not sure that I can do it tonight, but I’ll see what I can do.
MMdeS: Did you want to respond to these three questions over the phone?
NICK HEALY: Well, the first one might take a little more explanation or nuancing, because, you know, “concerns” — that’s a very broad word. There was certainly no never any report of any sexual misconduct, or even anything close to it.
We learned of the incident on August 30th from the Bishop.
And, number three I assume she was recalled by either the Mother General or the Father General of the order. I don’t know. We were not… there was no explanation.
MMdeS: Would you mind if you could respond, just the same thing you have told me, just in a brief note by e-mail. How long would that take?
[After explaining to me that he was very busy, he said he would send the e-mail “tomorrow”].
Tomorrow is here, and this is what I received instead:
Followed by this…
Which ended with this…
So, there you have it. Questions addressed to the president of Ave Maria University– regarding a major scandal involving “immoral conduct” by the Superior of an AMU-endorsed religious group on campus, end up at the Marketing Dept.
Thank God at least Nick answers the phone.
