WASHINGTON, May 14, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The Archdiocese of Washington has weighed in on Georgetown Universitys invitation of U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius as a commencement speaker in clear terms, saying that the school has unmoored itself from Catholic identity and chosen a stance against the countrys Catholic bishops.
Secretary Sebelius is the primary figure behind the HHS mandate forcing religious groups to provide free sterilizations, abortifacient drugs, and other forms of birth control to employees under the new health care law. She is also known for her extreme pro-abortion record, most notably her close ties with late-term abortionist George Tiller during her time as governor of Kansas. She is listed as a commencement speaker at Georgetowns Public Policy Institute.
With all of the people struggling so hard to preserve freedom of religion, and with all that the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has said in defense of this important value, Georgetowns choice of the architect of the radical challenge of such freedom for special recognition can only be seen as a statement of where the university stands certainly not with the Catholic bishops, states an unsigned editorial in the Archdiocesan newspaper. Msgr. Charles Pope of the Archdioceses official blog notes that the newspaper is a recognized voice of the Archdiocese and the editorial would have been reviewed by Cardinal Donald Wuerls senior staff.

Despots require ruthless counselors to implement their horrors. Sebelius is Hussein’s Reinhard Heydrich.
