South Bend, IN (LifeNews.com) -- Adding insult to injury, the University of Notre Dame announced today the appointment of a new law school dean who made donations to pro-abortion candidates, including President Barack Obama. The Catholic college is already under intense criticism for inviting Obama to give its commencement speech.
On Wednesday, Notre Dame officials announced that Nell Jessup Newton, most recently chancellor and dean of the Hastings College of the Law at the University of California, has been appointed as the new law school dean.
Rev. John Jenkins, the UND president who has come under fire for inviting Obama and bestowing upon him an honorary degree, made the decision to appoint Newton.
However, Fundrace 2008, a web site devoted to identifying donors to political candidates, indicates Newton gave Obama's presidential campaign $2,300 during the first quarter of 2007.
Newton also gave $500 to pro-abortion Catholic presidential candidate John Kerry during the first quarter of 2004 in his race against pro-life President George W. Bush.
The campaign finance web site also lists Newton as giving $1,000 in 2008 to Congressional candidate Jackie Speier, who was endorsed by Emily's List. That is the pro-abortion group that only backs candidates who support partial-birth abortions and paying for abortions with taxpayer funds.
In its announcement, Jenkins praises Newton but makes no mention of her donations to pro-abortion candidates in opposition to the pro-life teachings of the Catholic Church.

Fr jenkins Must suffer the sin of Pride to be in this Predicament. he could not possibly Prayed on this Decision!!
If I were the Pope I’d excommunicate the lot of them. Not that they’d care.
Five Hail Mary’s, three Our Father’s, plus one rosary.....and he must walk on his knees three times around the outside of the church while carry a load of bricks in his arms.......
I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot:
I would thou wert cold or hot.
So then because thou art lukewarm,
and neither cold nor hot,
I will spue thee out of my mouth.
Because thou sayest, I am rich,
and increased with goods,
and have need of nothing;
and knowest not that thou art wretched,
and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire,
that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed,
and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear;
and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

Divine mercy Novena.... good idea!!
It is past time for the bishop of the diocese to become far more proactive. Based upon Vatican directives, Catholic colleges and universities within every diocese are under the directive of the local bishop. The bishop needs to come down hard on the university president, and it is time for the Vatican to call the superior general of the order and the university president to Rome for a “little chat”, after which the president will submit his resignation, and a nice way to cancel Obama’s invitation be devised.
I would hope that would happen...we can only pray!
Yeah, I can believe it and I blame church leadership. We can all piss and moan about this stuff, but NOTHING will ever change if the leadership is unwilling to step up to the plate and protect and defend what they are charged with. If they won’t, they aren’t really the ones we ought to be submitting to . . . are they?
Today bring to Me the Souls of those who have separated themselves from My Church*,
and immerse them in the ocean of My mercy. During My bitter Passion they tore at My Body and Heart, that is, My Church. As they return to unity with the Church My wounds heal and in this way they alleviate My Passion.
Most Merciful Jesus, Goodness Itself, You do not refuse light to those who seek it of You. Receive into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart the souls of those who have separated themselves from Your Church. Draw them by Your light into the unity of the Church, and do not let them escape from the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart; but bring it about that they, too, come to glorify the generosity of Your mercy.
Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the souls of those who have separated themselves from Your Son's Church, who have squandered Your blessings and misused Your graces by obstinately persisting in their errors. Do not look upon their errors, but upon the love of Your own Son and upon His bitter Passion, which He underwent for their sake, since they, too, are enclosed in His Most Compassionate Heart. Bring it about that they also may glorify Your great mercy for endless ages. Amen.
well Done... Christ also spoke of Spewing Lukewarm Priest!!
When it rains, it pours. I wonder what is coming next to complete the trifecta.

Having been a Godfather to a Catholic boy for some time,
The process of understanding what it means to be Catholic
has been a matter of osmosis.
