Conversant with the Catholic Intellectual Tradition
So it seems like (as usual) a fair number of the 1 years cropping up are at Catholic schools. First of all, great. Thank goodness for an intellectually rigorous religion that wants to create institutions to hire academics. Here's the rub. I need a job, and I'm a good teacher. I'm not religious. I didn't go to Catholic school. I don't do Aquinas or the like.
Should I just give up on these jobs? I can teach the philosophy and respect the religion.

p.s. Pascal move aside, I got a pretty good economic argument for converting..
