University of Notre Dame

public act of disobedience" and "a grave mistake", Why?

The nation's most-prominent Catholic university and the world's most prominent President?

The University of Notre Dame has a tradition of inviting new presidents to speak at graduation. But this year's selection of President Barack Obama has been met by a barrage of criticism that has left some students fearing their commencement ceremony will turn into a circus! Why hold a grudge? His decisions to provide federal funding for embryonic stem cell research and international family planning groups, many Catholics are "HOT".

Who are the only people that can turn your graduation into a circus? I do see a change taking place and that is GREAT. No change or progress without conflict. Now I see, Peace and Prosperity!
