I found two extremely insightful comments about the 2009 Notre Dame Commencement Speech given by the current occupier of the White House who was invited by Notre Dame to provide the keynote address. That comment captured the irony of the moment. A radical Pro-Death advocate asked to speak at a supposedly Pro-Life Catholic institution of higher learning.
Here is the first comment (posted on Sunday, May 17, 2009 at AIPNews.com):
AND A BABY CRIES
“The best part of the (commencement) speech (at Notre Dame on Sunday) was when (Soetoro a/k/a Obama) began to talk about abortion and a baby in the audience began to cry.Here is the second comment (posted a few minutes after the post above on Sunday, May 17, 2009 at AIPNews.com):
“It was a loud and very distinctive cry.
“I suspect it made more than one person weep.
“I know I did”.
AND THE SPEAKER HEARS SOMEONE?
“For about 15 seconds, Obama appeared visibly shaken. I thought it was from something he was seeing in the crowd that the camera was not showing us, or another heckler we could not hear. Maybe it was the baby... MAYBE IT WAS GOD?”THEY’D NEVER DREAM OF DOING IT
Earlier in a live interview Randall Terry, founder of Operation Rescue and one of the leaders of the protest at Notre Dame, made the following assessment. He asked, rhetorically, “Would the wicked Planned Parenthood organization ask Pope Benedict to speak at one of its annual conventions? If not, then why in the world would a Catholic religious organization invite a Pro-Death proponent and one instrumental in advancing that cause AND bestow on him an honorary doctorate of law degree?
One reason is that Notre Dame’s Board of Trustees and its President, Father John "Judas" Jenkins, are sympathetic to and endorse the evil policies of this abominable God-dishonoring man, Mr. Soetoro alias Obama.
