God bless the Newman Society for standing up for our Lord's teaching and for the college for making the right decision. Notre Dame could take a lesson from this.

Goodman's pro-abortion jihad on behalf of the murderers was never a secret. Why was the invitation made to begin with? The leftists at St. Francis have fleen like cockroaches into the shadows when the lights were turned on. But they're still there.

I didn't know she was still alive.
