    What should we Catholics expect from this man, Obama, and his administration, some being so called catholics[sic]

    He is Anti-Catholic......came from 20 years @ REV WRIGHTS church [LIBERATION THEOLOGY which is MARXIST BASED}who in some of his sermons ridiculed and condemed the POPE well Minister Farakan.....a radical anti Christian and ANTI CATHOLIC!

    Catholics need to STAND UP AND BE HEARD and PROTEST when APPROPRIATE! We do not have a FRIEND in the white house .........."WE ARE NOT A CHRISTIAN NATION" Catholics who have PUBLICLY spoken UP for him ought to be SHAMED!

    Next, Notre Dame MUST cover the most recognizable statue of "Our Lady" atop the dome at Notre Dame prior to Obama's arrival for their commencement. God forbid there should be anything to remind people of the school's Christian leanings.

    Maybe Catholic colleges shold be governed by Catholics. It is obvious that they are not and parents cannot assume a school that passes itself off as Catholic is truly a Catholic school.

    I am not a Catholic but I am incredulous that Georgetown University would cover up the IHS monogram and/or any other Christian symbols at the request of the Whitehouse - as a condition of the President's appearance.

    Why didn't Georgetown stand on principle and tell the President that if he wants to speak at Georgetown, Georgetown will be Georgetown.

    Will Notre Dame also cover Christian symbols for the President? What has happened to American Catholicism? This is outrageous.

    Obama tells Arabs that the US is not a Christian nation and now he orders symbols of Christianity covered up! This is not equality this is the suppression of one religion, Christianity and it is unAmerican
