Notre Dame Commencement Wrap-Up [UPDATED]
Amy Welborn has Notre Dame Commencement wrap-up coverage here, here, here, and here. Read them all.
I paid no attention to yesterday's activities at Notre Dame. It was Gracie's 2nd birthday, and our family had better things to do (and a more worthy person to celebrate).
By the way, the only "winner" in this imbroglio are the culture of death and Obama's cult of personality.
When the voice of a pro-life protester can be booed and shouted down with cheers of "Yes we can!" and the President's pro-ESCR statements can receive a standing ovation by those participating in graduation exercsises at the world's preeminent Catholic university, Our Blessed Mother, for whom said university is named, can surely only be weeping bitter tears.
Says Ron Chandonia, commenting at Amy's blog:
Whitney got this one exactly right:I may not agree with him but he and the graduating students put the pro-lifers to shame. Did you hear the students BOO the pro-life guy and start chanting "Yes we Can"? It graphically showed how unimportant the students thought the pro-lifers and they out numbered them BIG time.The whole country was treated to the spectacle of some of the most coddled and expensively-educated Catholic kids in America cheering for abortion rights and hooting at the cardinal value of Catholic moral teaching. If I were a conspiracy theorist, I would suspect George Soros had paid Father Jenkins 30 pieces of silver (or more) for this day.
Opinionated Catholic has an excellent roundup of what's being said about the Notre Dame Commencement around the Catholic blogosphere.
