Head of Holy Cross order asks Obama to rethink position on abortion
ROME (CNS) – The head of the Holy Cross religious order that founded the University of Notre Dame has written to U.S. President Barack Obama and asked him to rethink his positions on abortion and other life issues.
…The visit should be a “teachable moment” for all involved, Father Cleary said. He asked the president to take advantage of the occasion to “rethink, through prayerful wrestling with your own conscience, your stated positions on the vital ‘life issues’ of our day, particularly in regard to abortion, embryonic forms of stem-cell research and your position on the Freedom of Choice Act.”
…Father Cleary’s letter began by congratulating Obama on being awarded an honorary doctorate from Notre Dame, and said the university was honored to have him deliver the commencement address.
“the university was honored to have him…”
It would probably be honored to have Pontius Pilate or Judas too.
