Support Bishop Rhoades' Statement to Notre Dame
We, the Undersigned, fully support our Bishop, Kevin C. Rhoades, in his pastoral correction of Fr. John Jenkins, C.S.C., and officials of the University of Notre Dame for bestowing the Laetare Medal to Vice President Joseph Biden. We agree with our Bishop that honoring self-proclaimed Catholic public officials who espouse policies which are in direct contradiction to Church doctrine concerning abortion and unnatural marriage is scandalous, abhorrent and certainly not worthy of being honored by any Catholic institution.
We gratefully recognize this courageous act of our shepherd on behalf of his sheep. We join the Bishop in condemning this scandalous act and urge Notre Dame to honor one of the many worthy Catholics.
