Yep, this is the same “Catholic” University that invited Obama ( the same one who REFUSED to support the Born Alive Babies Act ) to be the honored speaker at their commencement and (get this) CONFERRING AN HONORARY DEGREE ON HIM.
Prof. Carter Snead, a professor of law at Notre Dame, was one of the lead organizers of the statement, which was published on his official law school letterhead. Notre Dame's top ethics expert, Snead serves as director of the university's Center for Ethics and Culture, a position to which he was appointed by Father John Jenkins, the president of Notre Dame.
In 2009, Father Jenkins awarded President Barack Obama an honorary Notre Dame law degree.
Some of the other distinguished Notre Dame faculty who signed the statement condemning Obamas mandate are Prof. Patrick Griffin, chairman of Notre Dame's History Department; Prof. Richard Garnett, an associate dean; John Cavadini, director of Notre Dames Institute for Church Life; Christian Smith, director of Notre Dames Center for the Study of Religion and Society; Prof. Paolo Carozza, director of Notre Dames Center for Civil and Human Rights; Prof. Philip Bess, Notre Dames Director of Graduate Studies; and Father Wilson Miscamble, a professor of history.
Other leading organizers of the letter included Prof. Robert George of Princeton and Prof. Mary Ann Glendon of Harvard Law School.
Gee golly, guess this supposed “oh so brilliant” POTUS really stepped in it this time.
Couldn’t happen to a better person.
This “protest” is too little, too late.
I’m not impressed.
Notre Dame just learned that an BHO promise will last until he decides it is no longer of any value to him, or until he departs the room, which ever comes first.
Finally someone said it!
Isn’t Norte Dame the school that had to cover up the Cross when Obama spoke? That should have been there first clue where he was coming from. We need to start waking up the country.
Yeah, so what's with this crap. What hypocrites. They invited this monster to their campus, let him take down a few crucifixes, and then let him breath fire over the unborn and newly born.
What a bunch of crap!
No, Georgetown when Zero dropped by for a neighborhood visit.
Have they been arrested yet?
Send that suggestion to Mary Ann Glendon and the other signers of that statement. Let’s see if they can force the rest of the faculty to put up or shut up.
Well, BH0 will come out with some prime time speech soon, to be sure that we all are told that, those who disagree with this whole contraception/insurance stuff, must really just not understand him.
And how stupid does he think we are to say that the insurance companies will cover the cost; not the employers. ??
Give me a break.
So what are you saying? That we don’t want people to change their minds, maybe have a change of heart and not support him this time? If nobody changes their minds or admits their mistake last time then we won’t beat him this time either. It’s never to late to “protest” and have a change of heart, if it’s real. I welcome it.
Most of these academics probably enthusiastically voted for Obumer in 2008
