Notre Dame Professor Calls For Fr. Jenkins To Resign

Breaking story:

The University of Notre Dame student paper The Observer has a piece by Dr. Charles Rice, emeritus professor of law at the University, asked that ND President Fr. John Jenkins resign.

“The invitation should be withdrawn.  It implies no personal animosity to suggest that Fr. Jenkins and the other Fellows and Trustees responsible for this fiasco should resign or be removed.”

We’ve had multiple bishops and two cardinals reproach Notre Dame’s decision to invite pro-abortion President Obama.  Now we have an esteemed professor requesting President Fr. Jenkins resign his position as president of Notre Dame for inviting President Obama and creating this scandal.

    Prof. Rice has called on every Notre Dame President since 1952 to resign at one point or another. If Father Jenkins is replaced I’m sure he will call on his successor to resign as well.

  • Donald R. McClarey says:

    Considering there have only been three since 52, including Jenkins, that does not strike me as excessive. Now let’s see if other Professors at Notre Dame call for his resignation.

  • Dale Price says:

    Professor Rice is a good man with a superb legal mind. But, alas, he’s going to be as successful in this fight as he was against Tom Monaghan at Ave Maria. Once again, the deck is pre-stacked.

  • Gerard E. says:

    Matters not. Administration will react that Prof. Dr. Rice is just grumpy old f—t and acts like the crank who sues this or that person and/or organization. At this point, methinks the President should attend. And that ND students, alums, faculty opposed to invitation should act at their creative, non-violent best. My own suggestion- soon as Prompter gives him the cue to speak, those opposed should rise and begin publid recitation of the Rosary. Let them pick specific set of Mysteries. The Patron Saint of the joint will be most pleased. Lots of indignant harrumphing in MSM- though common for grads to do same with GOP speakers though not using Rosary of course. Father Jenkins’ resignation letter on desk of Board of Trustees Chair the next morning. Big fun.

  • Augustine says:

    The graduates should organize a walk-out. As soon as Mustapha Mond (aka Barack Obama) begins to speak, they should all get up and silently file out. This would be more powerful than any letter, no matter who from.

    But of course, most of them being thoroughly processed, flat souls, they won’t. Such is the Brave New World.

    “Father” Jenkins can stay. He can honor anyone he likes. Even notorious anti-life politicians like Dr. Kervorkian, Dr. Tiller of Kansas, Adolf Hitler, or Obama. Just stop calling Notre Dame a Catholic University!

    Doctor of Laws for a man like Obama who, not once, but four times, objected to laws against saving the lives of babies born of botched abortions? Doctor of Laws conferred by a Catholic University upon such a man? Are you nuts??
