I wonder how our Catholic friends will like this little move...The reach of the government cannot be opposed.

(Washington Examiner) — It’s not enough for President Obama’s National Labor Relations Board to target the Boeing plant in South Carolina. Now the NLRB thinks it can tell a church school when it’s not religious enough.

Most people have heard by now of NLRB’s unprecedented decree that Boeing Co. cannot build a new airline production facility in South Carolina.

But Obama’s NLRB is also claiming the authority to dictate labor policies and order union elections at Catholic universities if they are not religious enough.

St. Xavier University was founded in 1846, the oldest Catholic school in Illinois. Its corporate member is a Catholic body with the “powers for the governance of” St. Xavier, that “links the University to the [Catholic] Church and makes it an officially recognized member of the Church.”

St. Xavier’s Board of Trustees must have at least four nuns from the order that founded the school, and, according to its bylaws, its governing body must “ensure [St. Xavier] continues its educational and religious mission.”

After quoting these sources and many others, NLRB’s regional director concluded in true Orwellian fashion that “the evidence establishes” that St. Xavier is “a secular educational institution or university.”

How does a teacher's union interfere with their "educational and religious mission"?

This is what that wall of separation was supposed to mean, protecting the church from the state.

Saying you need 4 nuns on the board seems kind of random. I would think it would be more curriculum based.

That's the school's rule, just for clarification.

Thanks, I wondered about that. It's not worded that well, I don't think.

If I were Boeing I would say fine and build it in Mexico. then run an ad campaign on why we were building it in Mexic, but it's not too late if the Obama administration would back off and allow free enterprise.

Oh goodness gracious, poor Boeing. After being exposed as cheaters over and over again, and still getting to stick their snout in the government trough deeper than anyone else, they lost a minor decision. BFD. They've been "too big to fail" since back when GM was still building good cars.

Completely agree. Guy at practice said the same thing the other day except he said Canada.

Let me get this straight: The biggest defense contractor in America is going to threaten to move to Mexico or Canada?

There isn't a LMAO smiley big enough for that idea.

You think all DOD products are manufactured in the US?
You think obama et al have the right to do what they are trying to do to Boeing, a private contractor?
