The Catholic Pagan: 10 Questions for Camille Paglia

Always refreshing to hear CP’s provocations 

I have very little contact with American academics, who are pitifully trapped in a sterile career system that has become paralyzed by political correctness.

I do not subscribe to the implicitly moralistic assumption that literature or art “teaches” us anything.

Medieval theology is far more complex and challenging than anything offered by the pretentious post-structuralist hucksters.

But as a student of comparative religion, I have to say that when the Catholic Church trims its doctrine for politically correct convenience, it will no longer be Catholic.
