"[Catholic institutions] should not honor those who act in defiance of our fundamental moral principles."-- Catholics in Political Life, statement approved by USCCB 2004Notre Dame has sold its soul.
He is a man who boasts that America is no longer a Christian nation. Whenever he speaks at a Christian facility Christian are asked to cover their symbols of faith while his symbols are put up. (see story) (see previous post)
He is using the government to experiment with embryonic stem cells (a practice that destroys life now in order to possibly save it in the future), and he is using government funding to pay for abortions around the world. (see story)
He is the President of the United States of America who has not yet given proof that he is eligible to be President under Article II, U.S. Constitution which states, "No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President.”
His birth certificate, College records and other documents that identify who he is, document that any of us would show to get a job, are under lock and key and have been since he began his political career. (see sourceand here)
In spite of all of the above the Administrators of Notre Dame surrendered their souls to the last temptation of Barack Hussein Obama on last Sunday and the name Notre Dame will forever be linked with the name Obama. They invited this icon of the world to speak to its graduates in its 2009 commencement address and in addition they conferred an honorary degree upon him. (see story)
And be not conformed to this world: but be you transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.—Romans 12:2 AKJVChristian scripture recorded an instance where Jesus Christ was tempted of Satan while Christ was in the wilderness on a 40 day fast. Satan asked Christ to bow down and worship him. If Christ would pay such homage Satan would give Christ all of the kingdoms of the world.
Today receiving the kingdoms of the world is equivalent to being politically correct and being accepted by the world.
How best for Notre Dame to be hip and cool than to invite the hippest, coolest iconic symbol of the world OBAMA and bestow on him the blessings of the Catholic Church, an honorary degree from one of the most prestigious Catholic Universities in America!
That is exactly what the administrators of Notre Dame did in inviting Obama and in doing so many rank and file Catholics believe that this is the spiritual equivalent of putting a face piercing and a tattoo on the body of Christ. Sure it may look cool but is it really appropriate?
Anti-Christian forces in America have gotten a powerful ally in Barack Hussein Obama, a man who bows to Saudi Royalty yet he dismisses the National Day of Prayer in this country. Anti-Christian forces have and are depending on the continual silence of Christians while they advanced anti-Christian themes in the society.
As you know all that it takes for evil to prevail is for good men and women to do and say nothing. Yet even the Vatican remains silent on Notre Dame’s invitation to Obama. (see story)
That is completely astonishing because the Church has already had this controversy. In 2004 when the Church was debating Presidential contender John F. Kerry’s stated stance on abortion the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops issued a statement that neither Catholics nor Catholic Institutions should honor those who act in defiance of Catholic fundamental moral principles.
Obama’s overt stances on abortion, stem cell research and Christianity in America are not in keeping with the Church’s teachings and are in fact in defiance of the Churches teachings. To confer an honorary degree on Obama has aligned Notre Dame with the World while it shows unequivocally that Notre Dame has forsaken the teachings of the Church.
Obama represents a benchmark of choosing in all faucets of American life. Whether we will remain faithful to and choose that what we have been taught and know to be true or whether we will sell out our traditions to follow after what is popular.
Notre Dame chose the latter of the two.
"You are a baby killer," one man continued to yell, at which point the crowd broke into a deafening chant:"We are N.D."-- Carol E. Lee
They shouted back, "No, not him! Give us Barabbas!" Now Barabbas had taken part in a rebellion.—John 18:40 NIVObama attempted to frame the abortion and stem cell research controversies in his address as, we will just have to agree to disagree. Which means that Obama refuses to see abortion or destroying life via destroying stem cells as a violation of God's laws he only sees it as one of two opposing political opinions. Christians have their opinion and he and abortionist have theirs. That's called relativism.
During Obama's address a lone protest rose up, one man yelled,"You are a baby killer!" but the Notre Dame crowd would have none of it. Just as the Crowd shouted down Ponitus Pilot who offered to release Christ that Crowd demanded that a Revolutionist be released instead, this Notre Dame crowd drowned out the alone voice with the chant, "We are ND!"
It seems that Notre Dame wanted their abortionist just as those who opposed Christ wanted Barrabbas! But don't be fooled there was more than 1 protester! (see story)
