Here is what is suppose to be a leaked copy of the contents of the “honorary” degree to be given my Notre Dame.
“At the 164th Commencement The May Exercises
The University of Notre Dame Confers the degree of
Doctor of Laws, honoris causa, on the 44th president of the United States, whose historic election opened a new era of hope in a country long divided by its history of slavery and racism. A community organizer who honed his advocacy for the poor, the marginalized and the worker in the streets of Chicago, he now organizes a larger community, bringing to the world stage a renewed American dedication to diplomacy and dialogue with all nations and religions committed to human rights and the global common good. Through his willingness to engage with those who disagree with him and encourage people of faith to bring their beliefs to the public debate, he is inspiring this nation to heal its divisions of religion, culture, race and politics in the audacious hope for a brighter tomorrow.
I guess Fr. Jenkins wants to get the job of Press Secretary for the President. What a load of bunkem, Great job on helping the marginalized. Those being aborted will surely see this Fr. Jenkins’ way Got to love how the President allows those “bitter Americans” to bring their faith to the public debate. Funny I can’t see one example where he has done this. I was sure he had done the opposite by putting plenty of people in his administration that were often extremely anti-Cathoilc. He managed to only find people of “faith” who supported abortion and no appointments of anybody opposed. What in the world has he healed? Please name one divide that is not more divided? As Cardinal George pointed out after meeting him is that President Obama pretends to be on you side with his rhetoric while actually not agreeing at all. He will say things like “I understand your position” or “abortion is a moral question” while at the same time in his actions being quite dismissive.
As for his time as Community Organizer he left that community with no noticeable improvements. This is of course why he never gave any metric for what his success as a Community Organizer was. Later on he was able to steer grants to developers for a 100,000 dollar gazebo that never got built and money wasted on a park that never got developed.
So as far as I can tell Fr. Jenkins just made up crap to pad the President’s resume for him. What he says has no connection with the reality of Obama’s actions.
The hubris of Fr. Jenkins continues and he continues to seem to have zero empathy for those hundreds of thousands (and the 65 bishops who made public statements) who disagree with him.
