CATHOLIC PRIEST ARRESTED OUTISDE CATHOLIC UNIVERSITY FOR DEFENDING CATHOLIC TEACHING
Courtesy of At Home in My Father's House and Hermeneutic of Continuity I have this video of 80 year old Fr. Norman Weslin of Omaha, NE, former army colonel and founder of the Lambs of Christ, being arrested outside Notre Dame University after he and his group attempted to protest the University's honouring of President Obama. I am appalled that anyone should treat an elderly brother-priest like this despite the gentleness of the police. They were praying and singing in defence of Catholic teaching outside a Catholic University and the police arrested them. Who ordered the police to do this? Who pressured the police to arrest an old priest? How can a university retain its Catholic credentials after tolerating this, let alone after inviting the most pro-abortion President the United States has ever seen?
Shame on the police for doing this.
Shame on those who ordered them to do this.
Shame on this University's President Fr. Jenkins for allowing this.
Shame on Fr. Jenkins and his supporters for inviting President Obama.
When one defends the indefensible one quickly ends up defending the abominable.
