Maybe he can attend the Vagina Monologues

Kathryn Lopez reports that my alma mater (Notre Dame) has secured Barack Obama as its commencement speaker this May.

Will anyone point out that he has been the most active proponent of the culture of death ever to sit in the Oval Office?

Anyone want to go protest?

Relax, I don't think he'll ask to receive communion.

I think the question as it pertains to Notre Dame is whether ND is "in the world" or "of this world." Catholics are called to be in, but not of, the world. To engage the world and society without becoming worldly. The administration often talks about how ND is different, how it's special. But how is it special if it chooses to become of the world? There are already plenty of those types of universities. It sure does seem like the administration is doing this to enhance its prestige and reputation. Is that in the end what should be of primary concern?
