Only Tony Stieritz’s archdiocesan Catholic Social Action office would see fit to invite a leftwing radical identified as one of “The 101 Most Dangerous Academics in America” to lecture at a conference on the “family.” Dr. Mark Ensalaco, director of the University of Dayton’s Human Rights program, will address the theme “solidarity with the whole human family” at the Cords of Kindness, Ties of Love conference this Saturday, Feb. 2, in Dayton. Ensalaco was included in David Horowitz’s 2007 book The Professors for his defenses of Latin American communists and his apologies for Islamist terrorism. He was also the focus of a 2005 expose by Mr. Horowitz’s website.
