Commentary | Birks: Where better to fuck with the papacy?

Re: “Dress code flouted in Birks Chapel” | Compendium! | September 28

The “campus pagans” who are cited in the “serious news” article of September 28 are following a long tradition of “thumb[ing] their noses at the papacy” in the halls of the Birks Building. The building began life as a Methodist college, and the faculty of religious studies continues to have strong ties with the United, Presbyterian, and Anglican theological colleges. There is a certain view of history that sees such Protestant denominations as “thumbing” their noses at the papacy in the theological sense, so the “campus pagans” were certainly in good company.
