Notre Dame Protests Obama's Address - May 17, 2009, 07:14 AM


Protesters say Obama shouldn't be allowed to speak at the Roman Catholic university because of his support of abortion rights and embryonic stem-cell research.
About 12,000 people attended commencement Mass at the Joyce Center on Saturday evening. Neither the Rev. John Jenkins, the university president, nor Bishop John D'Arcy, who plans to skip Sunday's commencement because of Obama's presence, mentioned the controversy during the 85-minute service.
At the school's front gate at intersection of Angela and Notre Dame Avenue, more than 100 people gathered to protest the decision to invite Obama to speak at commencement and receive an honorary degree.

Skipping the commencement is the wrong move. Jesus came and sat among sinners. If you want to change someone's mind, skipping their commencement address is probably not going to facilitate that.

How's my posting? Please direct all concerns and inquiries to DCSBN's chief content manager, Hollywood, via PM.

I think the school made a bad choice, but he is the President. I believe people will be held accountable in the afterlife, so therefore I am pro-CHOICE. It is a choice. Anyway, I understand why they are mad.
