The bishop for the Diocese of Scranton has deemed the response of four Catholic colleges to his inquiry into contraceptives on campus “insufficient.” The presidents of King’s College, Misericordia University, Marywood University and the University of Scranton said in a joint letter Monday that they do not provide condoms or oral contraceptives on campus, but the bishop said further documentation is needed – citing two specific reasons for concern, including the inclusion of condoms on Marywood’s packing list for international students. Officials at the four colleges either declined or did not respond to requests for further comment Wednesday.
