Notre Dame's betrayal of faith
RenewAmerica.us ^ | 4/6/2009 | Selwyn Duke

When John the Baptist said to King Herod, "It is not lawful for thee to have thy brother's wife," the price he paid was his head on a platter. He had spoken Absolute Truth to power in a time when power was absolute. It was the bravest of acts, the kind only undertaken by those very rare men for all seasons.

Lying in stark contrast to this is catholic (note the small "c") Notre Dame University's genuflection before Barack Obama, a man embodying the very antithesis of Catholic teaching. As most are aware, the university extended an invitation to Obama to deliver a commencement address and, to make matters worse, will bestow upon him an honorary doctorate.

This is despite the fact that Obama has distinguished himself as the most militantly anti-life president in American history. In fact, his support of abortion extends to the point of infanticide, and I speak of his, at best, indifference to the Born Alive Infants Protection Act. In opposing the Illinois version of this legislation — thereby signaling his willingness to allow newborn babies to die in soiled store rooms — he showed his true colors. That is to say, it's not so much that the matter of when a baby gets human rights is above his pay grade; it's that he is morally degraded.

Adding to his impressive pro-death resume, Obama has rescinded the Mexico City Policy, thereby allowing our tax money to be used to promote abortion in foreign lands. He is also using tax dollars to fund the harvesting of stem cells from nascent human life. And he endeavors to establish a policy that would force health-care workers to either be party to abortion or risk losing their jobs ("Freedom of Choice" Act).

Is it true they will give Bernie Madoff an honorary doctorate in Business Ethics at the same ceremony?

Dear Notre Dame;
I will pray for your lost soul.
I am Lutheran and even I know that what you are doing is wrong.
Preen yourself well because the god that you now worship is satan.

One of the sad aspects of this scandal is the kind of negative image it portrays of the Catholic Church to non-Catholics. The liberal modernist heretics who support Obama (like ND's president) do not represent our faith. They are a shame and scandal to all of us. In the name of God, we appeal to the bishops and to Rome to remove them and return the church property of these campuses to rightful Catholic authorities who will defend and teach the Catholic faith. And who will defend innocent life at all stages.

Thank you for the support.
