Mary Ann Glendon, former Ambassador to the Holy See has refused to accept Notre Dame’s prestigious Laetare award.  Read all about it here.  This is no insignificant event.  Read Raymond D’Souza’s commentary here.

There are some public figures who put principle above anything else.  We can be proud of Mary Ann Glendon who has shown incredible class in regards to Notre Dame.  Our Lady must be weeping over this university which bears her name.

We need to lobby Rome to yank the “Catholic” from such universities as Notre Dame, Xavier, Georgetown and all the others that thumb their nose at Church teaching.  This is getting out of hand.
