A BOOK BY MARGARET FARLEY
PUTS YDS ON THE GLOBAL MAP
SPECTRUM, Spring, 2013
Nun-Coverage at Yale Daily News?
I prodded the Yale Daily News three times (once in a published letter to the editor) to dig deeply into this story which has had international coverage. I even mused publicly that the Daily News' failure to do so cannot possibly be anything other than a secular blindness to the role religion still plays in society, either that or simply youthful inexperience with the world. At least the Divinity School's own house organ, SPECTRUM (link above) got it right: The controversy put Yale Divinity School on the global map in 2012.
I blush for the Yale Daily News in this matter, for I have admired the maturity of its work in other stories of national import over the last four years from a horrible Yale murder to a courageous Yale "coming out".
Let us hope their tepid coverage here is truly youthful inexperience and not latent secular bias.
