The University of Notre Dame is set to crown Barack Obama with an honorary degree — in addition to the invitation to deliver the 2009 commencement address. So, don’t you wonder how this anti pro-life president will handle the commentary generated from accepting the invitation to address the graduating class of Notre Dame? You know, what I find so disturbing is that he has the temerity to accept an honourary Doctor of Laws degree — from. a. Catholic. University — no, on second thought, it’s disturbing that the University would confer it on him.
This is unbelievable — on so many levels.
In a perversely paradoxical sense, it is the pro-life community at Notre Dame which is responsible for the abomination which this invitation represents. By steadfastly opposing the display of abortion photos on their campus, they have allowed abortion supporters to create the misleading impression that abortion is a nominal evil. Dr. Martin Luther King didn’t trivialize lynchings by handing out white carnations or empty red envelopes. He won passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 by forcing the American people to look at shocking images of African Americans being savagely beaten for trying to register to vote.”
The Center For Bio-Ethical Reform (CBR) has begun displaying large abortion photos on the sides and backs of a fleet of billboard trucks which will operate in the South Bend area between now and the conclusion of graduation ceremonies.”
And the furthest left-leaning president in US history, President Obama, will accept an honourary doctorate from a university that, according to its foundational platform:
I guess, in reality, I ought not think it strange that Obama would take this doctorate — I really ought to be questioning the University’s decision to give it out. But then… it’s not really strange… I guess — for people are giving the Obama a pass just about everywhere he goes regardless what he says he will do and doesn’t or what he says he won’t do and does. It doesn’t seem to matter.
Protests = arrests at Notre Dame.
Apparently, by which, Mr. Obama is not swayed. I mean, ‘ Doctor ‘ is ever so much more persuasive and sounds so much more official than: Community Organizer or president.
