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.

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.
