    Map & Statistics: 1 in 3 Dioceses are critical of the Notre Dame invite

    [Diocese are marked in black if they have released a statement. update: Jefferson City added.]

    By my updating count, 66 bishops have commented in public (and critically) about Notre Dame's decision to invite Barack Obama for commencement and also give him an honorary degree.

    There are 195 dioceses in the United States. That means that among US bishops who are the head of a diocese, about 1/3 of them are against this decision.

    Plus, I can't find one bishop who has gone on record supporting the decision. Just something to ponder in the 13 days ahead. Ponder seriously.

    Action item: Check your diocesan newspaper archives/website to see if your bishop has spoken.
