I take no joy in being able to say â€śI told you so”, Â to Father John Jenkins the president of Notre Dame University.Â Father Jenkins was an original cheerleader for Barack Obama virtually from the first day of his first term. Notre Dame, its faculty and student body were absolutely beguiled by Obama. Jenkins invited him to speak at the universityâ€™s 2009 commencement ceremonies. At the time Father Jenkins and his faculty hid behind the fact that they a tradition of inviting a newly elected president to be its graduation day speaker, but that just didnâ€™t wash. Tradition aside Jenkins gave Obama an honorary Law degree something that was well beyond what was necessary. The fact that Obamaâ€™s lust for the blood of innocent babies through his love of abortion,Â meant nothing to Norte Dame then. The fact that Barack Obama sponsored a bill to murder innocent miracle abortion survivors meant nothing to Norte Dame then.Â The fact that 89 men and women including 3 Catholic priests were praying the Rosary â€“ a prayer begging the intercession of Our Lady for whom the school is named did, however, mean something. Jenkins had these good people arrested and refused to drop the charges over the next two and a half years.
Now the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago has refused to issue even a temporary injunction that would keep Notre Dame from having to provide abortion and contraception coverage in its employee healthcare packages.
Not surprisingly Father JenkinsÂ has announced Notre Dame will meekly comply with itsÂ earthly kingâ€™s edict to cast aside Catholic doctrine because he says so.Â There is, of course, some mumbo jumbo languageÂ that liberal CINOs (Catholics In Name Only) will use to make believe they are not doing what they obviously are doing; after all 55% of Notre Dameâ€™s faculty are not Catholics.
Letâ€™s hope this sobers up some of the CINO community in South Bend; but thatâ€™s going to be a stretch.
This bring to mind the comparison of Boston and New York’s St. Patrick’s Day parades.
The reason why the St. Patrickâ€™s Day Parade committee in Boston was forced to include Gay marchers, whoÂ appearÂ under banners identifying them as such, is that the committeeÂ could no longer make the case that the parade is a religious festival.
New York Cityâ€™s parade, to its credit , still holds the line on this issue because it has always stood for Catholic values.
Clearly Notre Dame is no longer viewed as a Catholic institution by the Federal Courts. Another formerly Catholic school is unmasked.Â Â Â
