    This sounds like Spin to me too.I saw the adoration on Fr, Jenkins face when he introduced Pres. Obama and his intro was nothing less than a slobbering love affair. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

    Now the spin really begins. Having a priest in each dorm of the quality of Fathers Jenkins or Cleary is probably why the ND students have no concept of Catholic teaching on morals and life. Nothing can alter the fact that secularism and tolerance of a direct assault on Catholic teaching have been exhibited publicly and arrogantly at this formerly Catholic institution, and now one that is Catholic in name only. The integrity and honestly of Notre Dame and its graduates now will always be suspect. Since when are truth, faith and morals subject to a majority vote or are proven because of the presence of ritual and liturgy alone? Why even waste time debating how "holy" these individuals have suddenly become? They publicly challenged the church's teachings and its authority and celebrated and rewarded and anti-life politician, enabling his actions and his statement that his views and Catholic teaching are irreconcilable. No amount of spin can ever change that.
