PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania, April 3, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Undeterred by the Notre Dame scandal, another Catholic University has invited a pro-abortion celebrity to address the school and receive an honorary degree at this year’s graduation ceremony.
St Joseph’s University of Philadelphia announced in March that political commentator Chris Matthews, a vocal proponent of abortion, is due to offer the commencement address and receive an honorary doctorate in communications at the 2009 Commencement ceremonies on Saturday, May 16.
Despite his avowed identity as a Roman Catholic, Matthews is known for his strong support of legalized abortion.
Matthews recently sparked criticism on the March 2 edition of his program, MSNBC’s “Hardball with Chris Matthews,” for a statement comparing pro-life advocates to terrorists.[reference]
Well if the most prominent Catholic university in the U.S. can bring in the most radically pro-abortion President – then big deal if another one brings in one of his supporters. Actually we need to get all of these culture of death Catholics together for an award ceremony. The Iscariot Awards would be the perfect ceremony for them especially on Spy Wednesday.
