Since I’m too lazy busy to come up with a blog post of my own right now, I’ll refer KC readers to a fascinating discussion over at Historiann. I commented on the issue of anti-Catholicism in the academy. Having spent most of my life in New England, and my entire career teaching at a state university that is closed on Good Friday, if there is anti-Catholic prejudice I haven’t seen it (then again, I’m not Catholic). Jewish colleagues, though, do feel that our university privileges christianity — I would have to agree. Again, why does a state university close on a christian holiday but none of the Jewish or Muslim holidays?
