The Obama Administration’s Ambassador to the Holy See, Miguel Diaz, is set to step down and will take a faculty position at a local university. The University of Dayton announced Diaz will be the new University Professor of Faith and Culture. Before his position as Ambassador, Diaz was an advisor to the 2008 Obama campaign. Diaz was also previously a professor in UD’s “religious studies” (notice it is not a “theology” department but a “religious studies” department) from 1996 – 1998.
Diaz will join a “religious studies” faculty at UD chock full of Obama supporters, such as UD’s Gudorf Chair in Catholic Theology and Culture, Dr. Vincent Miller, who many saw on O’Reilly. UD proudly quotes Miller as saying, “It’s clear the Vatican stands with the Occupy Wall Street protesters and others struggling to return ethics and good governance to a financial sector grown out of control after 30 years of deregulation.” Just like the Jesuits at Xavier, the Marianists at Dayton are out of control.
