    A law professor at Jesuit-run Fordham University in New York is appealing for an end to the institution of marriage in America, which he describes as “religious, gendered, and bourgeois.” Ethan J. Leib published his essay in the Fordham Law Review. The article, titled “Hail Marriage and Farewell,” says Leib was “elated” when the U.S. Supreme Court made same-sex marriage the law of the land on June 26, 2015, a ruling he described as “a victory for rights, for open-mindedness, for love, and for the future.” The decision, in fact, made him feel, at least for a moment, as if...

    Fordham University’s refusal to recognize a campus chapter of the pro-Palestine group — Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) — as an official student club has drawn widespread criticism from civil and constitutional rights groups, who claim the decision was politically motivated. […] In a joint 11-page letter to the Jesuit institution, released last week, the Center for Constitutional Rights and Palestine Legal affirmed that the denial not only violated free associated principles but was a blatant case of discrimination in violation of Title IV of the Civil Rights Act, pointing that all four applicants for the SJP chapter’s executive...

    When Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz came to the Bronx to campaign in the run-up to the New York primary, ridicule was not far away. After all, what is a Republican candidate doing in the staunchly Democratic, minority-majority northern part of New York City? What is he doing in New York State at all, when Donald Trump is nearly certain to carry the most votes and, according to market-based forecasts, has an 85 percent chance to win more than 50 percent of the vote? Why would Ted Cruz campaign in the Bronx? For someone like Cruz to campaign exactly...

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is facing an uphill battle in New York. For example, an event in the Bronx garnered what the New York Post estimated to be just shy of 100 people on the same day that GOP frontrunner and New Yorker Donald Trump held a rally that brought in what Trump estimated to be 17,000. On Tuesday afternoon there was an announcement for a Wednesday afternoon event at Bronx Lighthouse Charter School. Within hours the Cruz campaign released updated information for a Wednesday afternoon Bronx event that showed an entirely different Chinese-Dominican restaurant location. News broke Wednesday that...

    There are more than 1.4 million people in the Bronx — but Ted Cruz couldn’t even muster 100 at a campaign event in Parkchester with state Sen. Ruben Diaz Sr., a conservative Christian minister. Cruz visited the Sabrosura Chinese-Dominican restaurant, where Diaz said the presidential candidate could “listen to the social, economic and spiritual needs of our community” while dining with other clergymen on the eatery’s famed fried rice and plantains.
