The Sound of Music long ago, but I guess a re-baptism
every now and then is good for the soul.

And the real Catholic stance on birth control? Talk about differing with the pope on docrine! The following statement by a Chicago Tribune journalist is most aptly written:White Catholics also have inconsistent attitudes on life issues. Roughly four-in-ten take a pro-life stance on abortion (43%) and in opposing physicians being permitted to help dying patients to end their lives (42%). Just three-in-ten white Catholics (29%) say it is more important to avoid destroying the potential life of human embryos in stem cell research than to conduct research that may result in new medical cures. And about the same number (27%) oppose the death penalty.
Beyond the specific case of the Notre Dame commencement, Cardinal George's position continues a worrisome pattern in which the Catholic hierarchy in America is mixing religion with politics. It has seemingly lost sight of the difference between a moral nation and a religious one.

Many people don't know that Notre Dame has stood for high academic standards as well as "Fighting Irish" Football. Evidently no one told the makers of this little piece of dimwitted doggerel.
They must be Catholic Republican Notre Dame Alumni.
