“by their fruits ye shall know them”- Matthew 7:16
Notre Dame, a Catholic University, in keeping with tradition, has invited president Obama to deliver the commencement address to this year’s graduating class.
Initially, it seems that having a sitting president visit the institution would be considered an honor for Notre Dame and its graduates. However, considering the diametrically opposed positions of the president and the Catholic Church and Notre Dame, on the sanctity of life, the president’s visit is a black eye for the institution, a thumb in the eye of the Catholic Church, spit in the face of the faculty, student body, and alumni, and another irreconcilable, example, of blatant hypocrisy on the part of the president.
Mr. Obama, in short, advocates infanticide. He has the most radically, egregious, record in regard to abortion of any known politician. While a state senator in Illinois, Obama voted three times to allow abortion doctors the right to kill survivors of failed abortions citing the mother’s original intent to terminate her pregnancy. As a result, living, breathing babies were cast aside, some into linen closets, with no care to die.
To make matters worse, Obama’s administration has formally announced plans to rescind “Conscience Clause” regulation. From Freedom2Care.org:
civil rights laws declare that American tax dollars will not fund programs in which healthcare professionals are fired, penalized or otherwise subjected to discrimination because of their ethical stance related to abortion and other morally controversial issues.
By getting rid of conscience protecting regulation, many religious health care providers and institutions will be forced to perform procedures they oppose on moral grounds or risk unemployment or bankruptcy.
And for all of these “good works”, the University of Notre Dame, a Catholic University and supposed advocates for the unborn, will bestow upon Mr. Obama an “Honorary” Degree. This is the equivalent to the Jews bestowing honors on King Herod for the Massacre of the Innocents.
Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently inquired of the wise men. – Matthew 2-16
This is what 52 million Americans voted for.
God help us!
