LTE: A Response to “BC Faculty Donated Exclusively to Democratic Campaigns in 2014-15”

Your recent article about campaign contributions indicates a lack of diversity among the Boston College faculty. One hundred percent of the employees of BC, who contributed to political campaigns, gave to Democrats. Shameful. One of the reasons that BC was founded was that “No Catholics Need Apply” to some of the other schools in Boston. I guess that message can now be made to potential hires … “No Non-Democrats Need Apply.”

I guess freedom of thought is alive and well at BC, as long as the freedom of thought supports the Democratic Party.
