“We’re Catholic priests! Why would you arrest a Catholic priest for trying to stop the killing of a baby?”
- Fr. Norman Weslin
On May 15, 2009 Fr. John Jenkins, C.S.C, president of Notre Shame University, had an 80 year old brother priest arrested for trespassing. Fr. Norman Weslin, O.S. was protesting the recent scandalous actions of the pro-abortion Fr. Jenkins.
“Shame on Fr. Jenkins!”
“Woe to those who call good evil and evil good”

Former U.S. Ambassador to the Holy See Mary Ann Glendon has written to Fr. Jenkins, President of Notre Shame, to inform him that she will not accept the Laetare Medal.
A few excepts (with my emphasis):
…I could not help but be dismayed by the news that Notre Dame also planned to award the president an honorary degree. This, as you must know, was in disregard of the U.S. bishops’ express request of 2004 that Catholic institutions “should not honor those who act in defiance of our fundamental moral principles” and that such persons “should not be given awards, honors or platforms which would suggest support for their actions.”
A commencement, however, is supposed to be a joyous day for the graduates and their families. It is not the right place, nor is a brief acceptance speech the right vehicle, for engagement with the very serious problems raised by Notre Dame’s decision—in disregard of the settled position of the U.S. bishops—to honor a prominent and uncompromising opponent of the Church’s position on issues involving fundamental principles of justice.
It is with great sadness, therefore, that I have concluded that I cannot accept the Laetare Medal or participate in the May 17 graduation ceremony.

Talk about integrity! Now, if only an actual Catholic University would step up to honor her.

Last chance to sign the petition to Fr. Jenkins, C.S.C to urge him to disinvite Barack “the Butcher” Obama from giving the commencement address at the University of Notre Dame on May 17th and receiving an honorary degree from the same institution. The petitions will be printed tomorrow, April 20th.
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops says:
“The Catholic community and Catholic institutions should not honor those who act in defiance of our fundamental moral principles. They should not be given awards, honors or platforms which would suggest support for their actions.”
USCCB, Catholics in Political Life (empasis original)
Over 30 U.S. Bishops, including USCCB President Francis Cardinal George, have publicly condemned the actions of Fr. Jenkins. On May 3rd Bishop Wenski of the diocese of Orlando will offer Mass at the Cathedral in Reparation for the sins against life being commited by Fr. Jenkins and the University of Notre Dame.
Sign the Petition!
