So according to cnn the Roman Catholic Bishop (of both Fort Wayne and South Bend) is going to skip President Obama's speech at Notre Dame. The reason given is President Obama's recent Stem-cell and Abortion policies. I have a few things.
1. Is this getting any press or play in Fort Wayne?
2. This is brilliant, in my opinion. A lot of people would say, "Don't let him speak." Nope - that isn't a clear statement of disapproval, it just seems mean and harsh. Rather, let him speak, and let your absence be a clear sign of disapproval, and disapproval directly of the specific policies which you name.
