One bishop muses on Notre Dame, the president, and the protest generated by their convergence:
I am more alarmed that the rhetoric being employed is so uncivil and venomous that it weakens the case we place before our fellow citizens, alienates young college-age students who believe the older generation is behaving like an angry child and they do not wish to be any part of that, and ill-serves the cause of life.
Bishop Lynch, no doubt, for this blast of “calm and dignity” will be on the receiving end of some venom. Presidents Jenkins and Obama, also no doubt, are grateful some internet ire will be detoured from heading their way. If only for a day.
