Funny, how a picture of a Notre Dame student set me off this morning. It was his T-shirt message, pictured in the news, . . . it was asking: “PLEASE DON’T RUIN MY GRADUATION“.
The self-centered look on his face seemed to me to be a look of smug, righteous indignation, but admittedly, that’s conjecture.
It’s not that I don’t understand this is the culmination of 4 years of schooling, but just who is he begging?
- The pResident who comes to speak at his university? . . . who has already, caused newborns to die, outside the womb?
- The potential mother whose self centered desire to be able to continue her life without disruption? . . . . without any consequence to her actions?
- To the abortionst who will kill the not-yet-born, . . . for money?
- The media, who cover those who make news? Who film, write and comment about those willing to make a stand on critical, life and death issues?
- Or is he appealing to those of us who see life . . . . or the chance to live, as more important than this young man’s ego-centric piece of meaningless paper? (That may seem a bit harsh but so much worse, . . . is drowning her in a burning saline solution or pulling her apart, limb by limb.)
Certainly, this Catholic young man took a stand on the government’s abortion policies previously, right?
Or maybe it was the government’s . . . er, rather judge’s decision to have Terri Schaivo put to death that he took a stand on . . . . he did, didn’t he? If not, he did not belong at a religious university to begin with.
At the very least, the head of Notre Dame University, looks forward to having caused a permanent divisiveness, in his tenure there; he should be dismissed.
