The cancel culture is back and this time it came for a socialist Democrat. Joe Biden has been disinvited from speaking to this year’s graduating class at Notre Dame. When it was announced that he would be speaking there, they7started a petition signed by students and faculty, demanding that they should cancel Joe Biden because they are “dismayed by the pro-abortion and anti-religious liberty agenda of President Joe Biden.” The petition got 4,300 signatures.
The petition stated:
“He rejects Church teachings on abortion, marriage, sex and gender and is hostile to religious liberty. He embraces the most pro-abortion and anti-religious liberty public policy program in history. The case against honoring him is immeasurably stronger than it was against honoring President Obama, an action that alienated countless Catholics and brought upon Notre Dame the harsh criticism of 83 cardinals, archbishops and bishops.”
Joe Biden has been portrayed by the press as a devout Catholic but his policies goes against Catholic beliefs.
When he hosted the annual prayer breakfast he used his time to talk politics and did not mention God or Jesus Christ. He does not practice what the lamestream press preaches.
Nancy Pelosi also professes to be Catholic but you can’t tell by her policies.
The well-written petition concluded by asserting, “Notre Dame has long prided itself on its preeminent position in the educational world of the Church. We suggest that its responsibility as such is to guard Church teachings that are crucially important in today’s society by conferring its honors upon those who support them rather than upon those who oppose them, especially the one person above all who has the will and the power to undermine them.”
Fox News reports that “for the last three presidencies, either the president or vice president has attended the Notre Dame commencement their first year in office. President George W. Bush gave the commencement address in 2001, President Barack Obama gave the address in 2009 and Vice President Mike Pence spoke at the ceremony in 2017. Obama’s attendance drew backlash for similar reasons.”
Finance executive and trustee of the university Jimmy Dunne will be addressing the graduates instead.
