Notre Dame is ‘Bad to the Board’

Compromising Irish Throw in the Towel for Poltical Correctness

Before we look at Notre Dame’s Board of Trustees, it is important to look first at their hired gun, the president of the university. Father John Jenkins is affiliated with and supports Pro-Death wickedness.


In a Washington Times editorial, “
Booing Notre Dame,” the editor notes ND’s Jenkins involvement in a dubious Pro-Death organization,
“. . .Father Jenkins is a member of the board of directors of Millennium Promise, an organization ostensibly organized to fight poverty. A closer look exposes a darker agenda. One of Millennium Promise's major initiatives is Millennium Villages, a joint project with the United Nations Development Program and Columbia University's Earth Institute that promotes "reproductive rights" as a solution to poverty in the Third World, especially in Africa.

“In a chapter on "Maternal and Child Health" in the June 2008 Millennium Villages Handbook, one of the organization's "core interventions" is listed as "abortion services." The handbook states: "In countries where abortion is legal, safe abortion services in controlled settings by skilled practitioners should be established." To make abortion more accessible in remote areas, the action plan advises that abortion services need to be expanded to the village level. In a subsection of the handbook titled "Quick Impact Initiatives for Gender," one of the "strategic priorities" is to "expand access to family planning and contraceptive information and services." Father Jenkins refused to comment to The Washington Times, but surely he knows that abortion and artificial contraceptives are prohibited by the Catholic Church . . .”

Frank Walker in his article, "
No Likely Support From Notre Dame's Board of Trustees For Rescinding Obama Invite” offers his assessment of the University of Notre Dame’s Board of Trustees and shows why they will not rescind the University’s decision to invite the Pro-Death President to speak at its commencement exercise tomorrow and likewise receive an honorary doctorate degree in law.
“In conclusion, a review of the Board of Trustees at Notre Dame does NOT reveal a particularly strong Catholic identity. There are board members whose actions and associations put them in a position directly at odds with Church teaching and in line with the Obama administration. At the Notre Dame board, we see a group of well-connected well-heeled individuals from all sectors of society, and at the most prominent levels. Taking a stand against inviting the President of the United States would likely jeopardize membership in the elite club where they travel. Therefore it is highly unlikely that there will be any movement from within the board to rescind invitation to President Obama.”
In his article Walker identifies several ND alumni as having corrupt Chicago political ties. Furthermore, Walker categorizes a number of Board of Trustees as follows:
  • Those with questionable ethics
  • Those supporting immoral policies, and
  • Bankers beholden to Barry Soetoro a/k/a Barack Obama

Dr. Alan Keyes, who is in a South Bend jail at the protest in South Bend, thought that the protest may turn what was meant for evil (the Soetoro a/k/a Obama visit to Notre Dame) to good (Catholics and Christians who may have voted for Soetoro alias Obama believing that he was Pro-Life now will clearly see, through the protest, that he is truly radically Pro-Death.)
