A date which will live in infamy

Yesterday, I asked where the other 4/5ths of the USCCB was. I've found the answer as published by their own Ministry of Propaganda. The best the USCCB can do is some slobbering fluff piece on Judas Iscariot Jenkins.

Here's some of the article; (Emphasis mine)
Notre Dame head praises graduating seniors for decorum amid debate

NOTRE DAME, Ind. (CNS) -- In a letter to Notre Dame's graduating seniors, Holy Cross Father John I. Jenkins praised them for their decorum during the weeks of debate surrounding the university's choice of President Barack Obama as commencement speaker and honorary degree recipient.

"I have never been more proud than I have been watching the way you've conducted yourselves over the past several weeks," he wrote in a May 11 letter. (Translation: "most of you are useful idiots".)

He noted "in many cases the debate has grown heated" and added that the students' own debate about the school's May 17 graduation ceremonies has had "an extra dimension." (Interesting definition for the actual physical embracing of evil incarnate - "an extra dimension".)

"You have discussed this issue with each other while being observed, interviewed and evaluated by people who are interested in this story. You engaged each other with passion, intelligence and respect. And I saw no sign that your differences led to division," he said in the letter. (Over 364,000 signatures beg to differ. And should I even bring up the $14 million that alumni are with holding?)

Copies of it were circulated by students and published on several blogs, including the May 13 blog of Jesuit-run America magazine. (The Jesuits. I'm underwhelmed.)

"You inspire me," Father Jenkins said. "We need the wider society to be more like you; it is good that we are sending you into that world on Sunday." (Just what we need... more lukewarm, indifferent Catholics.)

The priest said he was "saddened that many friends of Notre Dame" felt the Obama invitation showed "ambiguity in our position on matters of Catholic teaching," and noted that "the university and I are unequivocally committed to the sanctity of human life and to its protection from conception to natural death." (Yeah... the same way Judas was 'saddened' when he accepted a bag of silver. What a phony.)

"A Catholic university has a special obligation not just to honor the leader but to engage the culture," he said, adding that the role has "never been easy or without controversy." (If you really want to 'engage in culture', how about giving a lesson and example of defending authentic Catholic Teaching?)

"There is much to admire and celebrate in the life and work of President Obama," the priest said, noting that the U.S. president's views and policies on immigration, health care, poverty and peace-building "have a deep resonance with Catholic social teaching." (So full of it...)

"As the first African-American holder of this office, he has accelerated our country's progress in overcoming the painful legacy of slavery and segregation. He is a remarkable figure in American history, and I look forward to welcoming him to Notre Dame," Father Jenkins said. (Half-African-American. Or more correctly; [Half-] White Trash, or Tragger, if you will.)

Um, no. Not one thing comes to mind. And we don't even have his transcripts, so we don't know if he was a good student or just an affirmative action grad.

But we do know he embraces evil with glee, so there is that. /sarc
