Well, in Alexandria Virginia they gave another "Centennial Medal" away - this time to Fr. Theodore Hesburgh, President Emeritus of the University of Notre Dame. Father Larry Snyder said of Fr. Hesburgh, "few are of his caliber." To that we reply, "we wish that were true."
What are some of the not-so-stellar accomplishments of Father Hesburgh?
- He gave Msgr Jack Egan a place and resources with which to originate the Catholic Campaign for Human Development. Recall that Msgr Egan was a follower of Saul Alinsky
- He was a major driving force behind the creation and promulgation of the destructive Land O'Lakes Statement. This statement explicitly claimed that Catholic institutions of higher learning owed no allegiance nor submission to the Teaching Majesterium of the Church.
Perhaps we need to promote a boycott of the in-pew Catholic Charities collection, as well as the CCHD collection.
