ND To Play In China?

It's being discussed, per the NYT. I'm sure Leland Stanford is rolling over in his grave at the thought of his namesake university playing there.

That it's being considered is a wonderful example of ND's continued hypocrisy, though. Put aside the fact that it's a move to play for a country whose government is imprisoning and murdering Catholics all the time. More than just regular persecution, they've even set up a schismatic counter-church for the purpose of deceiving as many people as possible. Take all that out of the equation.

What about all those "fighting for" commercials? We know how dedicated ND is to the "secular common good," so how is it that a nation with a human rights record like China's can draw even the possibility of the university's presence?

One word answer: $$$$$$
