In his book, Goodbye Good Men, Michael Rose extolled the seminary at the Mount as being one of the few decent ones that weren't overrun by gay pervert infestation. Of course he wasn't speaking about the Mount at large, so maybe the seminary has been spared from participating in the immorality that must have underpinned this regrettable invitation. Shriver will speak Saturday May 11 and receive an honorary doctorate of humane letters. The abortion he advocates is anything but "humane".
As I look at the Board of Trustees, I see that Msgr John Enzler, of Catholic Charities notoriety, is on the board. I perceive his paw-prints all over this invitation.
The Cardinal Newman Society has more information. I've also posted on Shriver and the ridiculous pandering he's received from Churches and other Catholic organizations. You'll also see in that anthology that faithful Catholics (including Yours Truly) have picketed him during some of those occasions.
Timothy Trainor, president of the university, can be contacted here. Again, looking at the Board of Trustees, we see the name of Archbishop Lori on there. Of course he'd be there, since the Mount is located within the Archdiocese of Baltimore. It is worth noting that he attended seminary at the Mount. He should also be contacted here.
We must ask them to withdraw the invitation to this pro-abortion person. Else, they are flagrantly violating the directives set for in the USCCB's "Catholics In Political Life". Will we picket this commencement? The answer to that question is very much up to the Mount.
Also, please lodge your protests on the Mount's social media sites: Facebook and Twitter.
