Pres. Obama on Catholic schools

Speaking in Ireland this week, President Obama stated that Catholic schools were divisive: “If towns remain divided—if Catholics have their schools and buildings and Protestants have theirs, if we can’t see ourselves in one another and fear or resentment are allowed to harden—that too encourages division and discourages cooperation.” On Thursday, the American Catholics for Religious Freedom fired back on President Obama’s words to 2,000 young people at the G8 Summit, stating, “President Obama’s anti-faith, secular agenda was shamefully on full display yesterday when he told the young people of Northern Ireland that Catholic education and other faith-based schools were divisive and an obstacle to peace. All Americans of faith should be outraged by these comments which clearly telegraph the President’s belief system and are in fact at their core even anti-American.”

  1. well in all charity what is a Catholic school anymore...I know you can find a handful that are Catholic, but exceptions to the rule hack away at the rhetorical norm, great piece by Rorate on the Redemtorists, in a sad way, but im sure they recieve a great education. Maybe, if they are lucky they can have a Cardinal boldly proclaim by way of Vatican II (im losing patience with this spirit thing...ambigouity demands a syllibus) that the Muslims indeed worship the same God...I know I know pray for him
