I find it extremely hypocritical that the Catholic Church is against the death penalty and yet it had no problem with George W. Bush speaking at Notre Dame University after he presided over the execution of 152 people in Texas and commuted no sentences, including that of a man with the communication skills of a seven-year-old.
Has the church changed its stand on the death penalty?
Both Bushes were definitely in favor of the death penalty when they spoke and neither has changed that view.
Ronald Reagan was divorced and the church is also against that. Jimmy Carter was then, and still is, pro-choice.
I think race must be the problem [with President Obama’s appearance at Notre Dame] because sin can be overlooked.
