At least 65,000 Catholics are retards

From Fox News:

Nearly 65,000 people have signed an online petition protesting President Obama’s scheduled May 17 commencement address at the University of Notre Dame, saying the president’s views on abortion and stem cell research “directly contradict” Roman Catholic teachings.

It’s hard for me to even comment on this. How weak is your goddamn faith if you can’t hear THE PRESIDENT OF THE FUCKING UNITED STATES SPEAK AT YOUR UNIVERSITY.

Jesus Fucking Christ, these people are idiots.

  1. I think people with strong faith are less fearful of differing opinions. As I said, pro-choice people are all over the place at Notre Dame. Singling out Obama is weak and irrational.

    my hyperbole is me expressing the emotional side of my point of view. I know it is juvenile and probably counter-productive but I choose to show my anger sometimes and that is my right. I know there are more persuasive techniques but sometimes I just want to vent.


  2. Well, I clearly didn’t support the notion that commencement speakers should be limited to pro-lifers. My argument was with your contention that the pro-lifers’ demands to rescind the Obama invitation demonstrated a weakness of faith. I’m aware that you deny that abortion can be considered murder. But you must acknowledge that others do consider it thusly, and they don’t want supporters of, in their view, legalized murder speaking on their campus. You can (as I do) disagree, but I don’t see how you equate their position with weakness of faith.

    What was your position with respect to Jewish students who protested the appearance of Ahmadinijad at Columbia University?

    By the way, I got here from the site. You have some interesting things to say and I share some of your interests (I was WB9AAE, I was engaged in model rocketry, astronomy and astrophotography, etc.), but you use an awful lot of hyperbolic (in the rhetorical, not mathematical sense) adjectives.


  3. Nice try but you miss the point. The university is not sanctioning anything other than freedom of expression, something that it should obviously sanction! Who really believes that every speaker at a university is going to say things wholly sanctioned by the university? Nobody. Nobody at all expects that. Further, it is not required you be a Catholic to attend or teach at Notre Dame. The notion that commencement speeches need to be limited to pro-lifers is insane.


  4. Let’s start off with: I’m neither “pro-life” nor Catholic and I would have been against attempting to keep Obama from speaking at Notre Dame were I a student there. But it’s either uncomprehending or disingenuous to characterize such protests as indicative of weakness of faith. These people equate abortion with murder. You may disagree with that belief, but if that is what one believes and one adds a belief in the sanctity of life, then one would not want someone who supports the right to murder innocents to be sanctioned by one’s University. I understand this, though I don’t agree. Apparently you don’t understand it.
