Most Pro-Abortion President in History to Speak at Catholic University of Notre Dame

President Obama has been invited to speak at the Commencement Ceremony on May 17 at the University of Notre Dame, the most well known Catholic university in the country.  He is also scheduled to receive an honorary degree.

The invitation has outraged Catholics everywhere because of his outspoken and liberal stances on abortion, gay rights and embryonic stem cell research and his push for legislation supporting and protecting those issues.

Rev. John Jenkins, Notre Dame’s president, defended the choice, calling it a “standing tradition to have the U.S. president speak and that he was ‘honored’ that Obama accepted the invitation.”

Judie Brown, President of American Life League said in response, “…we have the best-known Catholic university in the land reaching out to embrace the most pro-abortion president in the history of the United States. Something is wrong with this picture. Or perhaps one should suggest there is something extraordinarily evil about it.”

The Roman Catholic Rite of Baptism poses the question, “Do you reject the glamour of evil, and refuse to be mastered by sin?” 

Ambassador Alan Keyes, who is one of America’s most visible and outspoken Roman Catholics, referenced this invitation and spoke boldly and truthfully about the evil nature of Obama’s position abortion:

“Apparently the Catholic folks at Notre Dame University have no more respect for the Baptismal vows they renew every Easter than their invited Commencement Speaker this year has for the Presidential Oath of Office.

At this moment in time, Barack Obama is the living incarnation of the glamour of evil. His smiley tones, and non-threatening manner, mask a studied commitment to the promotion of the most deadly form of evil in the world today – the cult of abortion centered on the ritual of child sacrifice.

Obama has moved with impetuous determination to prove his claim to the mantle of High Priest of the Worldwide Abortion cult. With Executive orders, he has shifted the resources of the U.S. government behind the global implementation of abortion. He has declared open season on embryonic human life. He has appointed enthusiastic political and judicial acolytes of this cult of death to high positions in the Executive and Judicial branches.”

Dr. Keyes is dead on and I commend him for his bold and forthright declaration.   It is past time for those who say they believe in the sanctity of life to stand up and be counted, without fear and with Spirit-led truth and boldness.    That includes calling out establishments and people who claim to have Biblical values but live out the exact opposite in their actions.  I applaud those in the Roman Catholic Church and other Pro-Lifers who are willing to standup against this President’s position on abortion.  Shame on those who refuse.
