It was more than just inviting Obama to speak and giving him honors.

There were about 80 (I think) priests and lay people who were praying the rosary in protest on the campus.

Notre Dame had them arrested, they pressed charges and had the priests under threat of criminal prosecution for almost a year.

I think one of these arrested priests was in his eighties.

No decent person has forgotten that atrocity.

eCSMaster:

The priest in his 80s who was prosecuted at the insistence of Jenkins was the now deceased Fr. Norman Weslin, who had worked for Mother Teresa in New York City and had spent a lot of time in jail leading the most militant abortion mill Rescues in the country. I had the privilege of representing him elsewhere and he was a living saint. Jenkins is not fit for the priesthood much less to shine Fr. Weslin's boots.

Not only did Jenkins welcome the White House antichrist to be honored at Notre Shame but the university itself has degenerated massively and forfeited any claim to Catholicism under Frs. Theodore Hesburgh, Monk Malloy and Jenkins. Think of ND as an anti-Catholic institution that sometimes has good football teams. Don't look too closely at what happens daily on campus.

As to the lawsuit against Obozocare, that's nice but I would feel the same way about any litigation against ANYTHING Obozo does. If Jenkins and Notre Shame had not been soooo verrrry eager to sanitize Obozo and, in effect, show him every support, perhaps he would not have been POTUS in the first place. Of course that would have also required a GOP with ideological backbone to name cqndidates worth electing.

That’s why their name is Notre Shame.
