Choose Life (and take Notre Dame over Michigan State)

Obama's Commencement invitation last May caused great controversy, with many questioning The University of Notre Dame's commitment to Catholic doctrine and the sanctity of life. ND's President Fr. John Jenkins has taken some hits for having extended this invitation to the infanticider-in-chief, but only after Obama promised not to flaunt it by wearing a baby skull necklace over his commencement gown. (I'm only guessing here)

In an apparent attempt to heal those wounds, Jenkins sent an e-mail blast out Wednesday announcing the formation of a Task Force on Supporting the "Choice for Life". (have you really resorted to using the left's lexicon Father?)

To prove his commitment to "the choice for life", he promised to join the students in the national March for Life in Washington, D.C. on Jan. 22. I'm guessing his sign might say something like...

NOTRE DAME USUALLY CHOOSES LIFE!

OR...

MOST OF ND STUDENTS ARE NOT UNWANTED TISSUE MASSES

OR...

OUR CAMPUS WALLS 100% CORPSE-FREE

Sorry. I guess I'm still a little bent with Obama's visit and the whole honorary degree thingy. And maybe I'm just a little torqued with the loss to Michigan last week (right Chuck?). My snarkiness is solely directed at Jenkins and not the University of Notre Dame as a whole. I still love Notre Dame, despite it's current leader. I can say the same thing about this country after all. I also continue to be a loyal Jimmy Clausen and Golden Tate fan, though the jury is still out on the warm-and-fuzzies for Charlie.

Why the continuing hostile feelings toward Jenkins? Because he has so far, refused to drop the charges against "the dozens of pro-life protestors arrested last spring for 'crimes' such as saying the rosary and wearing pro-life t-shirts."
"Apparently the irony was lost on Jenkins that while he will be preparing to protest against Roe v. Wade, the actual Roe, Norma McCorvey, will be preparing for her criminal trial for protesting at Notre Dame after she was arrested under orders from Father Jenkins," notes pro-life advocate Tom Brejcha of the Thomas More Society legal group
Speaking of fallen Catholics, pro-choice Catholic and Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius refuses to say whether or not she receives Holy Communion. First of all, you can't be "Pro-Choice" and "Catholic". The two concepts are completely and utterly mutually exclusive. Hypothetically speaking, it would be like a young Kenyan born child desiring to grow up and become the President of the United States.

PICTURED: Sebelius demonstrates the proper way for so-called pro-choice Catholics to approach the Eucharist.
SECRETARY SEBELIUS: Well, the Archbishop in the Kansas City area did not approve of my conduct as a public official and asked that I not present myself for communion.

REPORTER: Do you continue to take communion?

SECRETARY SEBELIUS: I really would prefer not to discuss with you.That's really a personal--thank you.

DaBlade, I thought you were getting therapy after the game last week?

Actually I think Jimmy Clausen and Golden Tate and Co. are going to run over Moo U.

As far as Jenkins, this is the ultimate in irony

"Apparently the irony was lost on Jenkins that while he will be preparing to protest against Roe v. Wade, the actual Roe, Norma McCorvey, will be preparing for her criminal trial for protesting at Notre Dame after she was arrested under orders from Father Jenkins,"

Oh, the bitter irony. God is watching.

Chuck- It was a fantastic football game, was it not? While I admit crossing over to the ND side, my loyalties still fall somewhere in the 51-49 range, so Michigan's victory didn't ruin my day.

Oh, and it's been a week and the twitching in my left eye has stopped.

PCC- You're confusing the libs. They think you mean the obamasiah is watching.
