Obama is easily the most radical, pro abortion President, this nation has ever elected, having voted 4 times against a bill to protect babies born as a result of botched abortions, while he was in the IL legislature.
Cardinal James Francis Stafford, head of the Apostolic Penitentiary of the Holy See, criticized Obama as “aggressive, disruptive and apocalyptic.
He predicted a “time of trial” for Americans with the election of Obama.
The Vatican has said that Obama signing the Freedom of Choice Act (which he has promised to do) “would be the equivalent of a war.”
The Vatican also sharply criticized Obama for his executive order to overturn the ban on state funding for overseas abortions.
“November showed us that 40 years of American Catholic complacency and poor formation are bearing exactly the fruit we should have expected. Or to put it more discreetly, the November elections confirmed a trend, rather than created a new moment, in American culture.”
So why oh why would a Catholic University invite such a person to deliver their Commencement speech, when his core values, and sensibilities so profoundly conflict with the Catholic Church’s?
