Italian Limits To Academic Freedom

About 50-professors (Majority or minority of staff?) at Rome's Sapienza University have forced the cancellation of Pope Benedict's planned speech there and have clearly demonstrated their fear of even listening to any person who might challenge them to actually think outside the lines of their secular-humanist/atheist framework.

Somehow, I was under the impression that the academic world both faculty and students should first hear, then think and, only after such "brain-sweat" activities, evaluate. Of course, such in this persons (As the anti-Minutemen thugs at Columbia U. and those loyal "Sons Of The Prophet" who oppose those who would inform all of the true teachings and history of Islam), and the faculty and administrators who support them, have joined in in destroying the real meaning of "university"---An institution founded and made possible ONLY in a Catholic-Christian environment.
