Criticism over President’s invitation to Notre Dame

I saw this story yesterday and thought it was very interesting.  It hasn’t been getting a lot of attention yet, but I think it needs to.  The story centers on an invitation given to President Obama to speak at their upcoming commencement ceremony.  It’s been a tradition going back to Jimmy Carter.  However, as a result of the President’s strong stance on pro-abortion and his new legislation to allow federal funding for embryonic cell research, there has been an increasing swell of support to retract the invitation because of the conflict of moral beliefs.  In reality, the university will probably not rescind the invitation, for fear of alienating the new administration, but this no doubt will be a hot topic as the date for the commencement approaches.  The link to the full story is below.
