Bishop LeVoir's statement on Notre Dame's Invitation to
President Obama

Bishop LeVoir
Bishop of New Ulm, MN

Published on the website of the Diocese of New Ulm, MN
April 13, 2009

The USCCB Statement “Catholics in Political Life” reads: “The Catholic community and Catholic institutions should not honor those who act in defiance of our fundamental moral principles. They should not be given awards, honors or platforms which would suggest support for their actions.”

Since President Obama has taken stands that contradict the fundamental moral principles of the Catholic Church, e.g., the approval of abortion and embryonic stem cell research, he “should not be given awards, honors or platforms which would suggest support for his actions” at a Catholic university. The decision of the University of Notre Dame makes it much more difficult for the Church to carry out her vital mission to transform our culture into a culture of life and love.
