Father Jenkins' Continued Descent Into Madness

Notre Dame Prez Father John Jenkins seems to have lost all touch with reality, at least if his latest comments about the impending visit of Dear Leader to address the university’s 2009 commencement audience are any indication: 



“We are very proud and honored to welcome the first African-American President of the United States in a few weeks as our commencement speaker. . . . This is a tremendous event for us.  We’re tremendously proud. . . . President Obama clearly could have chosen any university in the country to give a commencement address, and they would have been just delighted to have him, but he’s coming to Notre Dame, and we’re exceptionally proud.”


The hubris at work here is simply breathtaking. The fact that, to date, nearly 50 U.S. Bishops have publically denounced his decision to invite a notorious pro-abortion politician to address the graduates and receive an honorary doctorate from the university seems not to have fazed him in the least. And the fact that over 325,000 other Catholics have signed a petition denouncing his actions seems lost on him.

He doesn’t seem to realize that, with each new self-congratulatory utterance he makes about this debacle — e.g., To welcome the first African-American president will be . . . gratifying for all of us” — he only confirms the suspicions of scores of bishops and hundreds of thousands of other Catholics; namely, that he is incompetent and clearly the wrong man for the high position he’s been entrusted with. His ability to polarize and antagonize is stupendous.

It’s no wonder that the “replace Father Jenkins” train is swiftly gathering momemtum.

Anyway, pop some Tums if you want to read the latest twist in this tortured Notre Dame saga. And let’s not forget to pray, pray, pray for this man. Let’s remember him in our Mass intentions and pray the rosary for him.

    I just found out late yesterday eve at a sm. lecture/talk I went to that in fact the presdient was the one who went to Father Jenkins and ‘asked’ him to give a commencement speech.
    Its what I heard through a reliable source. I also heard the speakers who will talk before or after the president are planning to give an excellent speech-bringing to the table ‘life’ issues. Should be interesting. But still knowing, Father Jenkins has made an ‘ill’ mistake for accepting this president request to speak and honoring him w/a degree.

    The Lord’s TeachingJohn 10:10The thief comes only to steal, slaughter, and destroy. I have come that they may have life, and have it abundantly.

    Instruction to ND2 John 1:9-11If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your house, and do not give him a greeting; for the one who gives him a greeting participates in his evil deeds.

    It’s pretty open-and-shut. Even sola-scripturists must admit that Jenkins is participating in Obama’s evil deeds.

    “I’m a Christian, not a Muslim” is another Obama lie. The fruits of Obama demonstrate clearly that he does the deeds of his father the devil, who is a liar and a murderer from the beginning.

    Yes…what Father Jenkins is doing is so severe….I mean this is the ‘face’ of the Church when your are dealing with a University. Its SO dishonoring and absolutely out of line with Church teaching. I cant believe how proud he is…and in the face of all the bishops etc! Truly frightening!

  4. Catholic Audio says:

    42 separate Bishops said the decision was a bad one, and 10 of his brother priests joined suit. This is how he responds?

    Shameful.

    God Bless,
