Bishop Slattery of Tulsa, Come on Down!

You're the next Successor of the Apostles to condemn the Obama commencement invitation!

From the Tulsa World:

Bishop Edward J. Slattery of the Diocese of Tulsa has joined a national Catholic outcry over Notre Dame University’s decision to invite President Obama to speak at the May 17 graduation ceremony.

In a Tuesday letter, Slattery pleaded with the Notre Dame president, the Rev. John Jenkins, to withdraw the invitation and to cancel plans to honor Obama with an honorary doctoral degree.

“As you know,” Slattery wrote, “President Obama is aggressively promoting abortion on demand not only here in the United States but all over the world.”

He said that U.S. bishops in 2004 issued a statement that the Catholic community and Catholic institutions “should not honor those who act in defiance of our fundamental moral principles.”

Geez. The hits just keep on coming. And a whole lot faster at that. Keep it going, Your Excellencies! Keep it going!
