The ND Pain Train Continues: Archbishop Nienstedt Protests

CatholicOnline has His Excellency's letter to Fr. Jenkins:

I write to protest this egregious decision on your part. President Obama has been a pro-abortion legislator. He has indicated, especially since he took office, his deliberate disregard of the unborn by lifting the ban on embryonic stem cell research, by promoting the FOCA agenda and by his open support for gay rights throughout this country.

It is a travesty that the University of Notre Dame, considered by many to be a Catholic University, should give its public support to such an anti-Catholic politician.

I hope that you are able to reconsider this decision. If not, please do not expect me to support your University in the future.

Again, I just want to point out that Jenkins folded on the Vagina Monologues issue under much less pressure than what he's seeing now. And it was completely secular pressure at that. Now, he's got bishops coming out of the woodwork on what is basically a no-brainer. Will he listen? How highly does he value the praise of the secular mob?
