Notre Shame

Monday, May 18, 2009

The current state of events happening over at Notre Dame, a private Catholic university, could not be better summer up than this:

From Diane at Te Deum Laudamus: "This is probably one of the most exceptional things I have ever seen: Notre Dame has an 80 year old priest arrested on it's campus as he sings Immaculate Mary. There is something ironic that the most pro-abortion president in the history of the United States is welcome on the grounds of a Catholic university under the guise of "dialogue" while an 80 year old priest is arrested for protesting it." (She has video of the arrest as well.)

Professor McInerny at "The Catholic Thing": "How did it come about that so many Catholics have such a mushy notion of what it means to be a Catholic? The teaching of the faith since the close of Vatican II in 1965 has been scandalously inadequate. In many cases it has been the deliberate substituting of stones for bread. It began with waffling on contraception when theologians, real or self-proclaimed, impudently rejected Humanae Vitae, one of the great encyclicals of modern times. The scandal of the encyclical was that it placed Catholics on one side of a line and the zeitgeist on the other. Yet dissent from it was allowed to flourish. Moral theology went into steep decline and the official body of Catholic theologians issued Human Sexual Morality in which doubt was cast on the long tradition of teaching on pre-marital and extra-marital sex, abortion, masturbation, homosexuality, divorce – a systematic dismantling of Catholic moral teaching

......And so it was that on Sunday at Notre Dame faithful Catholics were regarded as dissenters."

Father John Malloy at A Shepherd's Voice: "Those covering the commencement have reported that when protestors objected to Obama's presence (an objection also made by the local ordinary, Bishop D'Arcy) they were drowned out by chants of "Yes, we can!" Faced with a choice between faithfulness to Catholic teaching and whatever it is that President Obama represents, the chanting Notre Dame graduates chose the latter. That is after at least four years of study at an ostensibly "Catholic" university. A school for scandal."

This type of story only gets media attention because the protesters aren't buying into the mainstream liberal doctrines. One day, the liberals will wake up and find that they've lost their power base because of their incessant attacks on conservatives and conservative values. I hope that day comes soon.
