No to President Obama at Notre Dame!

By clicking on the picture in this post, or by following the link below, you will be directed to The Cardinal Newman Society’s website. There you will have the opportunity to sign a petition addressed to Father John I. Jenkins, president of Notre Dame University, imploring him to address the obviously poor choice of inviting President Obama to be this year’s commencement speaker. You can read the beginning of the petition below.
Dear Father Jenkins:
It has come to our attention that the University of Notre Dame will honor President Barack Obama as its commencement speaker on May 17.
It is an outrage and a scandal that “Our Lady’s University,” one of the premier Catholic universities in the United States, would bestow such an honor on President Obama given his clear support for policies and laws that directly contradict fundamental Catholic teachings on life and marriage.
This nation has many thousands of accomplished leaders in the Catholic Church, in business, in law, in education, in politics, in medicine, in social services, and in many other fields who would be far more appropriate choices to receive such an honor from the University of Notre Dame. . . read more and sign the petition
