Graduates of Notre Dame protest Obama speech

Sunday, May 17th, 2009

News Story:

President Obama was a speaker at the commencement ceremonies at Notre Dame University on Saturday.  He was also awarded an honorary degree.  Many students protested that he was chosen to speak at a Catholic university which does not support abortion or stem cell research as President Obama does.

Commentary:

It’s good to see that there are Americans who are capable of staging a protest that does not involve violence of any kind.  What do protesters who become violent, or start riots think they will get by behving in such atrocious ways?  The students of Notre Dame clearly let the world know their stance without any violent or disruptive behavior.
