[quote=David_Paul]Earlier this week, New York Rep. Sherwood Boehlert, also a Catholic, canceled his speech to graduates of St. Elizabeth’s College of Nursing after learning a bishop opposed his appearance. Boehlert said he did not want to draw attention from the graduation ceremony.
David: can you please give me the link to the Boehlert story?
On another note: Thank you God for Cardinal Keeler. Lifesite covered this story here:
Now if only Bishop Fabbro would ask Rev Malloy of University of Notre Dame to decline the award he has been offered by the Senate of the University of Western Ontario. :ehh: Hhhmmm. What happened there? :whistle:
Two abortion activists are being given the same award at the same convocation: Dr Henry Morgentaler and Doris Anderson. We all know that the Malloy award was a ‘bone’ tossed to Kings College (celebrity-lovers that they are) to keep the Catholic colleges quiet.
Well, it worked. The Catholic colleges are quiet. They are proceeding with their award and their convocation as though nothing else were going on in London.
$50 million withdrawn by alumni. Applications to register withdrawn. Violence mounting against pro-life protesters. Augmented security, private investigators implemented. An economic tailspin. Pro-life application for club status turned down. And Kings wants us to think nothing is happening!
The right thing to do would be for Malloy along the with three Catholic colleges at Western to boycott the convocations. And, as a matter of fact, an ‘informed source’ says that Malloy wants to decline his award. Somebody talked him out of it. When we have this story verified by two other sources, we will release the name.
Solution: We have been told by Canadian media that they need American Catholic commentary to the effect that Kings College dropped the ball by going ahead with the Malloy award; an award that many Catholics consider to be an insult to an outstanding Catholic educator, known for his scholarship and pastoral care to people afflicted with drug addiction and people considering abortion. And an insult to Catholics north and south of the 49th parallel.
Please Americans! Email Malloy, saying that if a boycott is good enough for Cardinal Keeler then it is good enough for Bishop Fabbro, Fr Bechard (UWO Chaplain), Dr Killan (Kings Principal), Dr Topic (Brescia Principal), and Rev McGratton (St Peters Rector). Please: just a simple letter asking that Malloy decline the honorary Doctor of Laws and that all Catholics boycott the June convocation at Western.

Please Americans! Just take ten minutes and send the email. Rev Malloy wants to do the right thing; he just doesnt know the damage which doing the wrong thing will do. He doesn’t know because nobody is telling him. Ani.
