It seems to me that we should have quite a bit of discussion of this dreadful development.
It would be a really bad idea for protesters to make asses of themselves, or disrupt the actual event at Notre Dame when the President speaks.
Not during the commencement ceremony.
Also, I remember that there was going to be a prayer vigil of some sort.
Would that the local bishop would perhaps concede an indulgence for those who participate in some sponsored prayer vigil.
