Subject: Notre Dame


Is there some inconsistency in the US cardinal's criticism of the invitation which has been extended by Notre Dame to President Obama? I am not a Catholic, but I don't believe the church condones the practice of capital punishment. If that is, indeed, a fact, then why wasn't there a similar outcry when President Bush spoke at commencement and received an honorary degree? The state of Texas put to death more people while Bush was governor than under any other governor in the nation's history.
I'm not criticizing the church for it's position on abortion. I am just wondering why there is such controversy now and not then.

I mean, planes have been diverted, people don't touch elevator buttons, proms have been canceled. At middle schools all across the country, students and teachers have been warned not to kiss during sex. And all for what? As of this morning, 331 confirmed cases worldwide.
