Notre Dame = NOT Catholic

Unfortunately the trend of "Catholics" denying the Church's teaching has now expanded to an entire institution - the University of Notre Dame. If you haven't heard already, Notre Dame has invited Barack Obama to give the commencement speech at this year's graduation. In addition, the university is bestowing an honorary degree on the President. For years now there has been debate about whether Notre Dame is actually a Catholic university, well I am sorry to say that it seems that debate has ended with a resounding "no".
I know that I constantly refer you to other articles, but this one by Catholic writer and Notre Dame professor Ralph McInerny, is a must read.
Furthermore, you can sign a petition here to protest this travesty.
This is a direct slap in the face to the Catholic Church. If Notre Dame goes through with this, there is no way they can even pretend to be Catholic. It will sadly join the ranks of those who merely pay lip service to the One True Faith.
