Thank You, Your Excellency
Bishop Yanta says what needed to be said

Here's the specific quotes from; (Emphasis mine) "In conscience I can no longer support Notre Dame as a Catholic College. I am deeply offended how you treat my wife of 54 years, the Church I love whose head is Jesus Christ."

"I also see Notre Dame crucifying Our Lord once again. Our Blessed Mother must be sorrowful for what you are doing to her Son, using her name in doing so."
Has your bishop had the moral courage to take a stand? If not, then the shame's on their heads. Any man who refuses to defend his wife, is no man.

New Orleans, Lake Charles & Houma, LA have spoken, but my bishop is quite silent (diocese of Lafayette, LA). He was also one of the bishops who shuffled around the pedophiles.

It's really a sad thing. My son is friends with our bishop's nephew. This family honors life, but their uncle, our bishop, won't speak out.
