Bishop D'Arcy may join Notre Dame students protesting Obama speech
April 17, 2009
The bishop whose diocese includes the University of Notre Dame has said that he might take part in student-led demonstrations protesting the commencement speech there by President Obama, the American Papist blog reports. Bishop John D'Arcy of Fort Wayne-South Bend, Indiana, who had earlier warned against "unseemly and unhelpful demonstrations," reportedly expressed his support for the campus group NDResponse, and said that he would welcome "prayerful and dignified demonstrations" and might participate in them if his schedule allowed it.
