Holly Robichaud in an op/ed for the Boston Herald said that Notre Dame’s graduation has been “hijacked by an Odrama that pits prestige vs. principle.”

When our country’s most famous Catholic institution selected President Obama as their commencement speaker and recipient of an honorary degree, it forced the debate on the sanctity of life onto the national stage once again.

For the sake of prestige, Catholic teachings are tossed aside to welcome the most pro-choice president in our nation’s history. More than 364,000 people have signed the petition to Notre Dame President Rev. John I. Jenkins denouncing the choice of prestige over principles, of popularity over morality.

President Obama’s record on life has been pretty clear in just a little over 100 days in office (in which the culture war is not dead) he has already proven to be the most extreme pro-choice president ever:

Then to add insult to injury President Obama lauds embryonic stem cell research in his commencement address while ignoring adult stem cells.

In contrast to President Obama we have Alaska Governor Sarah Palin who weighed in on this issue by sending Robichaud an e-mail:

My favorite grandpa, Clem James Sheeran, was Catholic. Irish to the core, his favorite place (other than church) was Notre Dame. I can’t imagine what he would think as the university recognizes someone who contradicts the core values of the Catholic faith by promoting an anti-life agenda. As we learned today, our nation is more pro-life than ever before; it is a very important time to strengthen the message that every baby is created for good purpose and has the potential to make this world a better place.

A contrast once again.  Notre Dame, shame on you for choosing prestige over principle.  You missed the opportunity to impart one final life lesson to your graduating class.
