I’ve debated within myself whether to give my thoughts on the President’s speech at Notre Dame. I have hesitated, because I am neither Catholic nor a fan of the “fighting Irish.” Rudy is my only real exposure to Notre Dame.

Today, I came across a brief article that sums up my own thinking. Brian Paulus writes…

For a major Catholic University to bestow an honorary Doctorate of Law degree on a pro-choice president is tantamount to a major Planned Parenthood agency honoring Randall Terry for his achievements–totally inconsistent with its stated purposes.

The long-term damage this does to the pro-life movement could be monumental. A huge message has been sent forth to Catholics everywhere, and that message extends beyond the issue of abortion. It’s a statement that says, “prestige over principles, and popularity over morality.” Somewhere along the line, the administration of the Fighting Irish quit fighting . . .
