Update: ND Responds to Scandal

Notre Dame sticking with Obama for commencement

A spokesman for the University of Notre Dame says it won't rescind an invitation to President Obama to speak at its spring commencement despite criticism from some Catholics that his views on abortion and stem cell research run counter to Catholic teaching.

Notre Dame spokesman Dennis Brown:
"Jenkins has spoken with D'Arcy about the matter, Brown said, declining to provide details."
"Brown, asked about the volume of complaints to the university, said it was "nothing beyond what we anticipated." "

O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to Thee!
