    Bishop Olmsted tells Fr. Jenkins Obama invitation "public act of disobedience to US Bishops"

    Here is a screen capture of the letter that the Bishop of Phoenix Thomas Olmsted sent to Notre Dame President Father Jenkins yesterday (on the Feast of the Annunciation) and has now permitted to be published today:
    These are very strong words from Bishop Olmsted, especially these two lines:

    "It is a public act of disobedience to the Bishops of the United States."

    "I pray that you come to see the grave mistake of your decision, and the way it undercuts the Church's proclamation of the Gospel of Life in our day."

    Mike Phelan, Director of Marriage and Respect Life for the Diocese of Phoenix, introduced the letter this way:

    "Due to the fact that the invitation by Notre Dame’s president, Fr. John Jenkins, to President Barack Obama to give the commencement speech at Notre Dame’s May graduation is a public act causing widespread public scandal due to the US President’s clear support of policies which fail to protect and even attack innocent human life, Bishop Olmsted has given permission to release the attached email text publicly."

    And now you have it, too. My comprehensive coverage of the Notre Dame scandal is available here.
