    I still can’t believe that Notre Dame was so naive to invite this pro-death politician and bestow lovely awards upon him. He is not going to live up to his promises, wake up. Vote for a candidate that will stand up for life. There’s a great candidate running that’s Catholic, Rick Santorum. Notre Dame failed when they were trying to be politically correct and offered an olive branch to this politician whose record is clear. He is pro-death. And I’m glad the Notre Dame football team stumbled as well. It’s time for this to become a Catholic university again not a CINO university.
