Notre Dame is really on a roll, isn't it? Sadly they've made another questionable decision it appears.
And who does the new dean of Notre Dame Law support when it comes to political candidates?[source: Huffington Post.]
That's right, she donated the maximum amount she could give to Barack Obama for his presidential run. Jackie Speier is a pro-abortion Catholic politician. John Kerry was a pro-abortion Catholic nominee for President.
And this is the kind of person Notre Dame chose to lead its Catholic Law School?
An informed reader contributes:
So much for Catholic identity and witness, too.
"As a bit of background, the law school at Notre Dame has made great strides in recent years, recruiting a respectable number of folks that are drawn to Catholic orthodoxy ... The law school has been trying to fill the deanship for some time. There were hopes for an outstanding transitional figure, who could foster both academic rigor and Catholic orthodoxy at Notre Dame. Yesterday, ND announced its new law school dean, Nell Jessup Newton. She may be a gifted administrator, but there are far superior scholars on the current ND faculty ... So much for hope and change."
WHO THE HELL is inCHARGE of HIRING these APOSTATES??
I think that the Pope needs to come out against these so called “Catholic” schools and pull their affiliation with the Catholic Church, period! They are a bastion of liberals that don’t believe in the doctrine the church preaches, including making up their own rules as they go.
She was probably offered a job in the Obama administration till they found she’d paid her taxes.
Just offhand, I'd say probably the democrats who are in charge of hiring apostates.
Certainly not all Catholics are Republican, and more than a few of them are democrat.
But if they were “real” Catholics and not the “i go to church 3 times a year” Catholics, they would know what the church doctrine is and what is taught in the catechism. Most of these so called Catholics are in name only. Don’t be fooled.
Pope Benedict insists Catholic universities remain faithful to Church teaching...
"There is much needed in change We see, My children, in the schools both your public schools and your private schoolseven those who call themselves Catholic. They are Catholic, My children, in name only, for they have sold themselves for pieces of silver." - Our Lady of the Roses, December 31, 1974
LifeSiteNews.com reported on November 25, 2005:
They shouldn’t be hiring a woman for this position, either.
I have some very sad news for you:
Not all catholics are conservitive.
Sadly, my own son and DIL are quite happy to vote for democrats. I used to argue with them all the time, but have essentially given up. They are quite faithful, going to church every week, sending their children to parochial school, my son is a lector and lay presenter, for bona-fides.
"Dont be fooled."
I'm not fooled, but some Catholics are.
Personally I think giving Obama an honorary law degree is much worse than having him speak at commencement.
“Institutions of lower learning” at a $30,000 cost/yr.
That’s what really sticks in the craw. Fr Jenkins certainly made a statement in his double whammie.
I literally MADE my dtr vote against Obama with all sorts of threats. She says she did but then who knows. I have noticed her changing her tune a little lately but I remain quiet and just plant a few more seeds which I’ll continue to do. When the elections for 2010 arrive I’ll start my threatening campaign again. :)
In the interest of maintaining a relationship with my grandchildren, I have toned down my vitriol.
In return, I get to call "foul" whenever they talk liberal to me.
