Cheer, Cheer for Ol' Notre Dame
Damned if you do and damned if you don't takes on a whole new meaning when your leading the free world. Every action has a very real and usually opposite reaction when your trying to correct the current state of affairs. The very Catholic organization that is Nortre Dame seems to have a little bit of a problem. Seems they have invited the President to stop by during their commencement events and speak to the graduating class. Too bad the Cardinal Newman Society wants true church beliefs upheld and thus banning the Obama visit. See, one thing the new administration has done so far is to lift the ban on stem cell research. Which the Pope and a few thousand other sit, stand, kneel fans are just not on board with. Seems this research calls for the suffering of the little children. And by suffering I mean death and by little children I mean very, very little. So whats a college head to do? Risk losing one of the best jobs on the planet for a catholic priest (just shy of running the boys choir) or rescind the invitation to the President of the United States. I'm not Charlie Weis but I would punt.
