Catholics and Obama at Notre Dame

By Keith R. Schmitz

The right wing bloggers are of course bloviating over Notre Dame's invitation to President Obama to address their graduating class this year. The Fighting Irish must have thought they were an open-minded university or something. But boys will be boys and the righties have to have SOMETHING to complain about.

As usual, the media based on their occasional laziness or in the spirit of fake balance, are mistaking all this heat for light.

Turns out according to a recent Pew study, most Catholics are not so steamed and almost most have heard nothing about it. For good measure, as for the prime issue that conservative Catholics want to bar Obama over -- abortion; turns out mainstream Catholic opinion is in the mainstream.

Betcha we'll get one response that these are not real Catholics.
