Obama to Speak at Notre Dame University

Laura Hollis is upset that The One has been asked by her alma mater Notre Dame to deliver the commencement address and receive an honorary degree in this article on In it, she cites many of the reasons Catholics should be outraged. You need to read the whole article to get the full effect of just how outraged Mrs Hollis is. From issues of life, to taxation, to foreign policy, Obama does nothing but spit in the face of Catholics everywhere (and Lutherans, and Methodists, and Baptists, and, well, pretty much all Bible believing Christians.) Here is a sample:

That a Catholic (and some say, the premier Catholic) university would overlook Obama’s appalling record on human life, disregard the inconsistencies in his positions, and bestow an honor of this magnitude upon him is more than disturbing. It is a travesty. It is a lie. And it is the culmination of the lies that Catholics commit and endorse when they hide behind the leftist rubric of “social justice,” which is nothing more than a pious euphemism for wealth confiscation and redistribution. There is nothing religious about it (indeed, some religious writers point to the 10th Commandment as proof). But anti-life, and anti-American activists and politicians like Obama have been using “social justice” for decades to deceive decent, unsuspecting, well-meaning Catholics (and others) into supporting policies and organizations that undermine everything they stand for...

For those not familiar, the 10th Commandment states "You will not covet..." The writer she is refering to can be read here.
