    CNN has been widely mocked for publishing an opinion piece calling for Americans to thank the media the way members of the military are acknowledged because they are both “protecting our freedoms” and “the stakes have never been higher.” University of Notre Dame management professor Joseph Holt wrote the essay headlined, “The press isn't the enemy, it's the protector,” which was published last week. The widely ridiculed piece is labeled “opinion” and notes “the views expressed here are solely the author's.” Holt defended CNN’s Jim Acosta, who was mocked by Trump supporters at a recent rally. Acosta then asked Press...

    SOUTH BEND, Ind., August 3, 2018, (LifeSiteNews) – The University of Notre Dame refuses to follow the example of other Catholic universities in revoking an honorary degree awarded to disgraced former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick unless sexual accusations levied against him are proven in a Vatican court.   "While the University finds the alleged actions reprehensible and has no reason to question the review board's findings, it recognizes that McCarrick maintains his innocence and that a final decision in the case will come only after a canonical trial in Rome," Notre Dame president Fr. John Jenkins wrote in a statement Thursday. An influential Notre...

    Today: a call to action on two fronts. There is a groundswell now developing among faithful Catholics that something must be done, and done now, about sexually abusive bishops and their brother bishops covering all this up. The recent revelations about Cdl. Theodore McCarrick have set off an explosion of comments and overall disgust at the role of so many members of the Establishment Church — particularly the hierarchy — in covering up this decades-long evil. And let's be clear, we are not talking about the child molestation cases, we are talking about adult men who are sexually harassed or advanced...

    Paris’s Notre Dame Cathedral is in a dismal state of disrepair and needs $70 million for urgent renovations, according to Michel Picaud, head of Friends of Notre Dame de Paris. One possible solution for the famous church and other religious monuments is to ask patrons to pay an entrance fee, but so far the Church has been against that. Taking a tour of the decrepit parts of the cathedral (its construction began in the 1100s), is a long, breathtaking and dispiriting experience. Around the back of the cathedral, Picaud points to a collection of stones – including finely worked pinnacles...

    Speaking on the decision of the Cleveland Indians to no longer make use of the mascot Chief Wahoo as their uniform logo from 2019 onwards, co-host of ESPN’s “First Take” Max Kellerman argued on Tuesday that the University of Notre Dame should also be among those sports teams that take note of the offense caused by their mascot and make move to change it.

    The Fighting Irish have a bone to pick with Christopher Columbus. Notre Dame students are calling for the removal of 12 iconic murals, which honor the famous explorer and have been on campus since 1884. The students have reportedly teamed up with alumni, faculty and staff in an effort to get rid of the 19th Century paintings. “In this era of political divisiveness and a renewed rise of dangerous nationalism, it is time for Notre Dame to remove its own version of a Confederate monument,” the group wrote in an open letter last week that was published in the school...

    Seems that for Senator Dianne Feinstein, being a believing Catholic is enough to disqualify a candidate for a federal judgeship. Feinstein stated as such at confirmation hearings for Notre Dame law professor Amy Barrett, nominated by President Trump to the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals. "I think whatever a religion is, it has its own dogma," explained the Senator. "And I think in your case, professor, when you read your speeches, the conclusion one draws is that the dogma lives loudly within you, and that's of concern when you come to the big issues that large numbers of people have...

    Tom Hawkins, who played six seasons for the Lakers, worked as a broadcaster in L.A. and later served as a Dodgers executive, passed away at his home in Malibu on Wednesday. He was 80. A 6-foot-5 forward, Hawkins starred at Chicago’s Parker (now Robeson) High School before playing at Notre Dame, where he became the first African-American student-athlete to earn All-America honors for the Fighting Irish. Hawkins was the first Irish player to average in double figures for scoring and rebounding during each of his three seasons (freshmen were ineligible during his collegiate career). His 1,318 career rebounds remains the...

    Ara Parseghian, a member of the College Football Hall of Fame who coached Notre Dame and Northwestern, has died. He was 94. Parseghian, who was born May 21, 1923, in Akron, Ohio, recently spent time in a nursing care facility because of a hip infection. He returned to his Indiana home last week to receive 24-hour care. Parseghian led the Irish to two national championships (1966, 1973) in 11 seasons in South Bend, Ind. Both of those teams were unbeaten. He had a 95-17-4 record at Notre Dame, where he also coached in what some called the "Game of the...

    THE family of the man accused of carrying out a terror attack at Notre Dame cathedral have said the terror suspect is "not an extremist".

    PARIS — The Algerian doctoral student suspected of attacking police officers in front of Notre Dame Cathedral — with cries of “This is for Syria!” and a hammer — was identified Wednesday by a relative and a friend as an ex-journalist who firmly believed in democratic values and showed no signs of radicalization. The Paris prosecutor’s office said a search of a residence linked to the suspect in the suburb of Cergy-Pontoise uncovered a declaration of allegiance to the Islamic State group. A nephew in Algeria, lawyer Sofiane Ikken, said he was mystified by the finding because his uncle, Farid...

    A man armed with kitchen knives and a hammer attacked a police officer stationed outside Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris Tuesday afternoon.

At the moment of the attack, thousands of people were inside the cathedral, eyewitnesses said. However, most remained calm once they understood something was going on. Apparently, Europeans are getting so used to terror attacks that we all...

    Vice President Michael Pence, former governor of Indiana, was invited to speak at the commencement ceremony at Notre Dame instead of President Donald Trump. He became the first vice president to speak at Notre Dame's commencement, after Notre Dame decided to not invite President Trump breaking a long-held tradition since 1960 of inviting presidents to speak at the university. Pence's speech focused on freedom of speech and how Notre Dame is one academic institution that encourages dissent and differing opinions. However, during his remarks, about one hundred graduates walked out of the ceremony, where over 3,100 graduates were in attendance...
