The Audacity to Speak: Thoughts on Why Obama Should Excuse Himself from Notre Dame's Commencement Ceremonies

WASHINGTON, ( -- The senior students at the University of Notre Dame worked to complete their degrees and have earned the right to celebrate the joyous occasion of graduation.

Graduating college is an event that marks the culmination of hard work and perseverance. Graduation day should be remembered and revered in the way that we remember weddings, happy birthdays and warm holidays with family and friends.

This year, due to the careless invitation sent to President Barack Obama to speak at Notre Dame by Fr. Jenkins, the schools president, the students will most likely remember the terrible uproar more than anything else.

What can a man who supports abortion, infanticide, embryonic stem cell research and the forcing of healthcare professionals to perform or refer for baby killing have to say to these young men and women-- many, if not most who are Catholic and pro-life?

If anything, maybe Mr. Obama should step down off the soap box and listen to them!

I am baffled at the audacity of Barack who insists on speaking at this graduation even if graduating students don't want him there.

President Obama doesn't get it. His ego is so big that he has no problem forcing himself on the students and faculty of Notre Dame.

A man of greater stature would simply have excused himself--in order to maintain decorum and dignity.

President Barack Obama knows that he is wrecking graduation day for many Notre Dame seniors and it is very obvious that he doesn't care.

I think that is becoming the mantra of Mr. Obama--he just doesn't care.

The National Black Pro-Life Union is an organization founded to serve as a clearing house to coordinate the flow of communications among all African American pro-life organizations and individuals in order to better network and combine resources.

We realize that if we are to be successful, it is necessary to share information and/or resources as well as "who gets the credit." We acknowledge that the real credit for any good thing always goes to GOD-not man.
