An American Cardinal, Daniel DiNardo of Houston/Galveston, has jumped on the K-Lo bandwagon and condemned Notre Dame for honoring a Democrat.
I find the invitation very disappointing. Though I can understand the desire by a university to have the prestige of a commencement address by the President of the United States, the fundamental moral issue of the inestimable worth of the human person from conception to natural death is a principle that soaks all our lives as Catholics, and all our efforts at formation, especially education at Catholic places of higher learning.
So where was DiNardo when in 2001, Notre Dame invited George W. Bush, who had honored the "inestimable worth of the human from conception to natural death" by executing more people than any other governor in US history?
There's more examples where that came from.
Seriously, do these pious wankers ever pause for a wee bit o' the old self-examination? Do they ever listen to their self-righteous slobberings and think, "Hey, whoops, double-standard, there"?
Yeah, I don't think so, either.
