Two-Faced Catholics……principle or prejudice?

Fact: The Catholic Church opposes the death penalty.

President George W. Bush was Notre Dame’s commencement speaker in 2001.

George W. Bush presided over 155 executions while he was the Governor of Texas. Texas had more executions than any other state!!

Did President Bush receive the same drama when he was going to speak at Notre Dame?

President Barack H. Obama has been catching hell from the time his speaking engagement was announced. Catholics say it’s because of Obama pro-choice stance and his support of expanded stem-cell research. Pro Choice/Death Penalty???? I thought in the bible all sins were the same? Is this another excuse for racists to speak out against Obama under the disguise of something else? Don’t Catholics have other things to be concerned about? There are still grown-ups waking around that were abused by priests. I think Catholics need to get their own house in order before judging others.

He's black.

They were really mad at their core.

Moreover, this really wasn't a Notre Dame thing, but more pro-Catholic groups that had aught with him. And his speech was off the chain.

Nothing to see here, lol.

Yup. This had absolutely nothing to do with his stance on any issue. BTW, I thought the way he addressed the controversy in his address was brilliant.

Uppity & PPR - Everyone says that his speech was a hot one. He seems to always know how to flip a situation. That is one of his great traits. I gotta give that to him.
