The prestigious University of Notre Dame has surprisingly announced President Barack Obama will speak at the commencement exercises at the end of this academic year. This invitation raises serious questions about the university's public mission as an institute of Catholic learning and faith.

Thomas Peters, the American Papist, doesn't expect the President to be dis-invited but that a massive pro-life rally will be held on campus (I believe he's right on this).

An online petition has been created to ask Notre Dame's president, Father John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., to rescind the invitation and seek a speaker whose life and faith is more consonant with Catholic teaching.
