As mentioned in previous posts, Sister Carol Keehan was slated to give today's commencement address to the 2010 graduating class of Gonzaga High in Washington DC today. Despite our protests and pleadings, the administration of Gonzaga (Jesuits, of course!) remained obdurate. Sister Carol Keehan did befoul the commencement with her address - however, we made very certain the truth was heard, if not embraced. Read more - it's a long read, but well worth it.

I got there a little late, so many of the family members were already in the church. However, we still continued to offer information regarding Sister's misdeeds of several months back. We also showed graphic pictures of abortion - that is, what Sister has helped promote by supporting the Obama Hell Bill. This was met with predictable resentment; truth, when unwelcome, does evoke resentment. One person declared to us that we were "defecating" on the graduation. We replied that it was Sister's presence that was the true defecation, the true cause of "ruining their day".
Soon the graduates came out as they prepared to process into the church. Unfortunately, it appears that many of them succumbed to liberal Jesuit brainwashing. We continued to proclaim the (unwelcome) truth of Sister's misdeeds. One of our number even went so far as to give to Cardinal McCarrick a very well-deserved rebuke for allowing the mess to go on. I caught that on video; the interaction with the Cardinal does occur near the end of the clip. (Click here if you can't see embedded videos)
The proclamation of truth did NOT stop after the doors closed behind the Cardinal. A friend of ours had reason to be sitting on the altar, facing the congregation. She gave to us the following report.
Sister Carol's talk was entitled (Sit down! Wait for it!) "Confusion and Clutter in Today's Society". Perhaps she has some arguable expertise in these matters. She certainly does seem to have a confused mind, if she really believes abortion is no big deal when it comes to fulfilling the progressive dream of socialized medicine. She also mentioned that people "should follow those who are inspiring". Sister must now breathe a sigh of relief that no one will be following her around.
Sister finished her talk. As she left and the next speaker was just getting up from his chair, my friend cried out (referring to Sister Carol), "That woman should not be an invited speaker at any Catholic institution! She was responsible in part for the health care bill being passed and therefore our country is a socialized country with socialized medicine! She supports the legalized killing of children! Wake up, America! That woman should never have been an invited speaker at any Catholic institution!" With that, she was escorted out the back door and joined the rest of us in front of the church. As she left, she could hear another woman (from the back of the church) cry out "Sister Carol Keehan excommunicated herself by participating in the passage of the health care bill!''
Kudos to these two women!
I leafletted many of the cars parked on the street. Afterwards I and many of the other pro-lifers had to leave. A few of our number, including the woman ejected from the church, stayed until the end. They saw Cardinal McCarrick and Sister Carol Keehan walk out - arm in arm! No surprise there. Cardinal McCarrick and the late Ted Kennedy were seen walking out in that fashion after some event a few years back. I understand my friend rebuked the Cardinal and Sister quite forcefully as they proceeded to the reception area.
By the way - one of the graduates did thank us for being there. To protect him from possible retribution from his fellow graduates, I'll elaborate no further. I say that to point out that there is hope, and we have to be there to inspire that in the ones that manage to remain sane as they are bombarded with progressive slop, even in (supposedly) Catholic institutions.
