President Barack Obama delivers the commencement address at the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Ind., Sunday, May 17, 2009. (AP Photo/Charles Rex Arbogast) (CNSNews.com) - The University of Notre Dame, which has joined other Catholic groups in suing the Obama administration over its mandate requiring health plans to offer contraceptives, sterilizations, and abortion-inducing drugs free of charge, is nevertheless inviting President Barack Obama to speak at the university before Election Day.

“The University of Notre Dame’s president, Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., and student body president Brett Rocheleau have joined in inviting both President Barack Obama and Republican presidential nominee Gov. Mitt Romney to speak at the University during the fall election campaign,” the school said in a press release on Monday.

The Catholic school sparked outrage in May 2009 when it invited Obama to deliver the commencement address and receive an honorary degree. More than 100,000 people signed a petition in an unsuccessful attempt to stop the address by a politician who supports abortion on demand, including partial-birth abortion.

Catholics would argue my point but I make it nonetheless... Catholics use Government to push their notion of social justice. They enlist the power of Gov to facilitate it... only problem is, Gov is a secular organ and will not be played by religionists. In short, you can’t sleep with the devil and not be burned... somehow, most Catholics miss this...

I can’t argue with your comment because it’s gibberish.

Father Jenkins is a disgrace and a phony.

Your point can’t be valid because none of your terms is defined. What is meant by “religion”? What is meant by “politics”? What is meant by “mixing” them?
