“Fr. Jenkins Will Probably Lose His Job”: Nine More Bishops Make 42 against ND Scandal

Nine more bishops have publicly acknowledged their disapproval of the University of Notre Dame’s invitation to President Obama to speak and receive an honorary law degree at the school’s commencement exercises May 17. Bishop Paul Coakley of the diocese of Salina, KS, told LifeSiteNews.com (LSN) today that he has written a personal letter to Father Jenkins expressing his “deep disappointment” at the invitation. Citing his grave concern over the President’s support for anti-life policies, Bishop Coakley told LSN that he reminded University president Fr. John Jenkins of the USCCB directive that forbids Catholic schools from honoring those whose positions contradict the teachings of the Church.
