Before the Charlie Weiss era I used to root for Notre Dame as my Number 2 selection after my childhood religion The Ohio State University. After discovering that Weiss was seemingly proud of being an excessive abuser of profanity ( an entire 60 Minutes piece seemed to revolve around how cute everyone thought it was that Notre Dame’s coach loved to heap profanity out in liberal portions- including the school’s priest-president), I decided to drop cheering for Notre Dame football- for what would it be for Our Lady University to succeed on the field but lose her soul in the locker-room.
Now that we have dispatched Charlie, we have the Brian Kelly era upon us. I recalled that there were rumors swirling around him that he had indicated at some point that he was pro-choice on abortion. Now that the football season is right around the Bend- I need to know if there is anything to the rumors, and whether this interview I posted is accurate or misleading. Kelly seems to imply that he is pro-life, but he never just comes out with it- he dances around the issue with fragmentary thoughts like ” I’m a Catholic…it’s cool to be Catholic”. OK- so it would seem that the guy is either going deep-cover as a pro-abort, or he was never pro-abort and was the victim of some bad reporting. I’m not taking a position on his position until I know for sure just what his public position has been – but I would like to see if anyone has any more clarifying reportage so that I can make an informed decision about whether to cheer for or against Notre Dame football this year. This is an extremely important issue and I would like everyone to take their quality time to help research this grave matter!
