Another piece of stupidity

March 25, 2009

We’ve become a nation of intolerants. Apparently, in the interests of political correctness, we must vet any speaker’s every position on every subject. And if they aren’t aligned with the organization’s position, they must not be allowed to speak. And we need a national debate over it.

Just like Bush’s famous If you aren’t with us, you’re against us.

This makes me completely insane. See below. I hate what’s become of our nation. For shame.

Pres. Obama’s planned visit to the University of Notre Dame this spring has triggered a national debate over whether such a prominent supporter of abortion rights should be welcomed at one of America’s premier Catholic universities.

Obama’s decision to speak at the school’s May 17 commencement is generating strong feelings on all sides, with supporters saying he should be welcomed as the nation’s leader and opponents saying he should be shunned because of his views.

As the leaders of campus groups upset about his selection prepared to meet Tuesday evening to map out opposition plans, abortion opponents from across the country said they were making plans to travel here for the commencement.

    oy ve. That’s all I can say. Oh stop. Don’t get me started on policital correctness, dogma or my personal favorite Catholicism. We will have to open a bottle of something good for that particular discussion.
