And Now on Obama/ND . . . Bishop Higi

LifeSite has published a snip of Bishop Higi of Lafayette, IN:

"Many people, including myself, who consider the University of Notre Dame the prestigious Catholic university in the United States, are most upset that the university has extended an invitation to President Obama to give its commencement address and receive an honorary degree," wrote Bishop Higi.

"Others have explained why so many object to this action. It need not be repeated here. In simple fact, the Catholic community and Catholic institutions should not honor those who stand in defiance of our fundamental moral principles. They should not be given awards, honors or platforms which would suggest support for their actions. The sanctity of life from conception to natural death heads that list of fundamental principles."

That last bit should be branded on the foreheads of all those "proportionate reasons" voters that Karl mentioned in his rather eloquent piece of work below.

Bishop Higi also encouraged folks to join the protest sponsored by the Cardinal Newman Society here. Sign on if you haven't already.
