My aunt was a huge Notre Dame fan. I almost went there. She died in 2000. I was outraged by their decision and she would have been too.

Yes it was - Notre Dame is a Catholic University first and Obama has clearly disrespected Catholics and their beliefs.

no absolutely not; i'm jesuit educated (8 years) and they are wonderful teachers-- got a kid at BC and would be disappointed if the school was so narrow minded

Yes, Obama is not Catholic and he supports abortion. Judas Iscariot did spend time around Jesus though, so, punishment takes it's course as God see's necessary. The university did look strange though to commence such an event.

yes. But let's not single out ND. Most recently the jesuits have crossed the line at GTown & BC with commencement speakers who publically oppose our teachings and under mind Catholic instituitions in America. Wish more universities were like the Franciscan University of Steubenville.
