Peruvian cardinal says Notre Dame is ‘greatly confused’
June 01, 2009
Calling it a “provocation to give Catholic homage to a president who in the first 100 days has boosted abortion, gay marriage, investigations with embryonic cells, and an entire anti-life agenda,” Cardinal Juan Luis Cipriani Thorne of Lima says that President Barack Obama is not “the most adequate person to receive recognition from the University of Notre Dame, which, by the way, has been greatly confused for some years now.”
“What we can't do is sell a ruined product,” he adds. “To think that parents and their kids go to a university that has the title of 'Catholic' and then it turns out that it teaches what is contrary to the faith. This is a confusion or an abuse. I think the Church has the duty to call things by their name.”
