Notre Dame’s moral equivalency award

Cheer, cheer for old Notre Dame…
What though the odds be great or small
Old Notre Dame will win over all
While her loyal sons are marching
Onward to
…moral equivalency and rampant degradation of Catholic teaching.

The famed “Notre Dame Fight Song” is supposed to end with the rousing phrase, “Onward to victory!” but I thought it more appropriate to alter the ending with a parody about what currently afflicts America’s greatest Catholic institution of higher learning. A once-great university has caved into the doctrine of politically-correct thinking and moral relativism – again.

Following on the heels of the scandalous invitation of President Obama to receive an honorary degree from the Notre Dame Law School in 2009, ND President, Fr. John Jenkins, invited Obama’s deputy, Vice President Joe Biden, to receive the University ’s highest honor, the Laetare Medal, at this year’s graduation on May 15th. Ostensibly, the nomination has to do with Biden’s years of public service as a Catholic; however, since Joe Biden has also spent most of his long career as an unrepentant advocate of degenerate and immoral causes, Fr. Jenkins had to justify and sanitize this travesty of political thinking. The perfect ruse for the great Biden absolution was to bestow the same award on the former Speaker of the House, John Boehner, who served in Congress for about the same length of time as Biden but with a somewhat less scandalous record of public service. As far as I know, Boehner has never advocated for any intrinsically evil policies or lifestyles like abortion or gay marriage.
