News spread fast with the announcement that the University of Notre Dame (ND) will have President Obama at its commencement speaker and receive an honorary degree. Our very own Donald R. McClarey was johnny-on-the-spot with the breaking news last night. Here is the official press release states as follows:
“Mr. Obama will be the ninth U.S. president to be awarded an honorary degree by the University and the sixth to be the Commencement speaker.”
Here’s a round up of the near-unanimous condemnation of this invitation to Pro-Abortion President Barack Obama:
1. Bishop John D’Arcy has been very critical of ND in the past. Bishop D’Arcy has also defended unborn children againstPresident Obama’s anti-life agenda in the past. His Excellency will have quite a bit to say come Monday.
2. The ND switchboard was overwhelmed late last night with all calls expressing their outrage at the invitation of a president with blood on his hands of innocent children. The voice mailbox for the President, Fr. John Jenkins, Vice-President, Provost, assistant-provost and PR director of ND were all full by 9pm EST.
