THERE IS A IMBROGLIO GOING ON BETWEEN THE NOTRE DAME ALUMNI, AND “SUBWAY ALUMNI”,( OF WHICH I HAVE BEEN A MEMBER SINCE THE DAYS I WORKED AT MILLER BREWERY WITH THE GREAT IRISH FULLBACK NEIL WORDEN)BECAUSE OF THE DECISION TO GIVE PRESIDENT OBAMA AN HONORARY DEGREE.
All the dispute is because Notre Dame is the power house Catholic university in the USA, and Obama is an outspoken advocate of abortion and partial birth abortion. Not all Catholics appear to feel that is a reason to disqualify Obama from being awarded the honorary degree, as the polls indicate that approximately 58% of people who identify themselves as Catholics voted for President Obama in the general election.
Those 58% percent are either ignorant or choose to ignore the precepts of the Roman Catholic Church. The Church has been an outspoken advocate for the sanctity of life from conception until natural death occurs for centuries. This puts anyone who supports abortion , and especially partial birth abortion( the killing of a live baby in the birth canal by sucking it’s brains out)in direct opposition to the teaching of not only the Catholic Church but many Christians and Jews, despite what the “unsupremes” ruled in Roe/Wade.
And now there is another reason to disqualify Obama from even giving a speech at Notre Dame, much less getting an honorary doctorate.
This story was published in the Patriot post today. I am including a portion of it to illustrate why Obama should not be on the podium this Sunday at Notre Dame. At least Arizona State had the sense and chutzpah to not award an honorary dgree when Obama spoke at their graduation yesterday.
“Harry Knox is the director of the Faith and Religion Program at the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), a homosexual rights organization. Knox has said, among other things, that the pope’s view on condoms was “hurting people in the name of Jesus,” and that the Catholic Church’s denial of communion to a “married” lesbian couple was “immoral and insulting to Jesus” and an “act of spiritual and emotional violence.”
Further, Knox said that by not supporting a U.N. resolution that called for decriminalizing homosexuality and equating all sexual orientations, the Vatican was “sending a message that violence and human rights abuses against LGBT people are acceptable.”
Knox has also called Pope Benedict XVI a “discredited leader” and described the Catholic Knights of Columbus a “discredited army of oppression” because they supported a California ballot initiative to define marriage as being between one man and one woman.
Obama named Knox to his advisory council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships on April 6. CNSNews.com previously reported that the letter Boehner signed called on President Obama to remove Knox”.Source:CNSNEWS.com
If Knox said this about Muslims who stone to death or throw off high buildings known homosexuals in many Muslim countries. He would be widely condemned by the Media, and certainly never appointed to any staff position by Obama. There is something seriously wrong with what is going on in the Halls of Power in Washington when people who advocate killing a human in the most safe place in the world (a mother’s womb) are appointed to positions of power. It is time for the Silent Majority to be resurrected!
