    Jimmy Johnson's hair was a mess. I mean, it was all over the place, and he couldn't care less. This happened long before the perfectly groomed Jimmy joined Howie, Terry and Michael as NFL analysts for Fox, and he still was years away from winning Super Bowls while yelling, "How 'bout them Cowboys?" Instead, way back then, with no brush or comb in sight around the visitors' locker room at Notre Dame Stadium in October 1988, Johnson was the coach of the Miami Hurricanes, and you'd think he was just in the midst of one.

And on his lap is Lisa Ann, a well know adult movie star. (Safe for work link to IMDB.com). The two were spotted at New York City’s Madison Square Garden taking in a Knicks game:

    Again the University of Notre Dame is under pressure to officially recognize a ‘Gay-Straight Alliance’ (GSA) club on campus.  Pro-homosexual activists are using the incremental, step-by-step approach to wear down Catholic resistance and boil the proverbial frog slowly. According to The Observer, the Office of Student Affairs is “currently reviewing a proposal to create an official gay-straight alliance (GSA) at Notre Dame.”  Although similar applications have been denied in the past, the student-run newspaper prints an ambiguous response from university president Fr. John Jenkins on the issue.  In a recent interview, he says:  “I think it’s time for a fresh...

    Update: University spokesman sidesteps issue; pro-abortion professor calls TFP “monsters.” Confirmed: Some pro-abortion internships are funded by ND Gender Studies. The Department of Political Science at the University of Notre Dame currently lists the following menu option on its webpage: “How to Find a Summer Internship.”  When students click on that option they are sent to a page titled:  “Summer Internship Opportunities,” which provides live links to pro-abortion groups. (Link) Alerted about this fact, over 10,850 students and parents joined TFP Student Action in politely asking Fr. John I. Jenkins, president of Notre Dame, to have the website entries that...

    Back in May 2009, during the controversy over Notre Dame’s decision to have President Obama as their commencement speaker and honorary degree recipient, I gave a short statement to the Boston Herald: “My favorite grandpa, Clem James Sheeran, was Catholic. Irish to the core, his favorite place (other than church) was Notre Dame. I can’t imagine what he would think as the university recognizes someone who contradicts the core values of the Catholic faith by promoting an anti-life agenda.” In his latest Washington Post column, Michael Gerson writes about the Obama administration’s war on Catholic institutions with President Obama's decision...

    The dictatorship of relativism is alive at the University of Notre Dame. While the 88 pro-lifers who peacefully prayed on campus during the 2009 commencement fiasco still face charges and possible jail time, the homosexual movement is welcomed. From April 12-16, Notre Dame plans to host a pro-homosexual "Stand Against Hate Week." According to the promotional flier, the events are being sponsored by various groups, including the Office of the President (Fr. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C.), the Office of Student Affairs, the Core Council for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual & Questioning Students, the Feminist Voice and Campus Ministry. Why should any...

    Recent events at the University of Notre Dame are creating a great deal of moral confusion. Ever since the university decided to honor our pro-abortion president at its commencement ceremony earlier this year, it seems the institution is on a direct collision course with its long-standing Catholic identity. URGENT petition to Notre Dame: Please drop the chargesFor example: Notre Dame funded a student trip to the National Equality March in Washington, D.C, held on October 11. The pro-homosexual march demanded same-sex “marriage” and the abolition of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy. Notre Dame’s Gender Relations Center announces troubling activities...

    Imagine you have been invested with the power to choose a major university’s next commencement speaker. You can choose anyone you want — business leaders, political officials, talented artists — everything is on the table. By what criteria would you make your decision? Would you choose a speaker in line with the values according to which the school was founded or would you simply choose the biggest name out there? If at our own University, for example, would you pursue someone who adamantly opposes the freedoms of expression and religion espoused by our illustrious founder, or would you seek someone...

    The Rev. John M. D'Arcy, bishop of the Fort Wayne-South Bend diocese of the Catholic Church, released the following statement regarding the production of "The Vagina Monologues" at The University of Notre Dame. It has been customary at this time of the year for many institutions of higher learning, including, regrettably, Catholic institutions, to present something called "The Vagina Monologues." Alas, even our beloved University of Notre Dame is presenting it again, as it has for the past several years, under the official sponsorship of three departments. The bishop is the teacher within his diocese, bearing special responsibility before God...
