There is a blog that just started up at the beginning of Lent where everyday they post an open letter to Fr. Jenkins, president of Notre Dame, and then they send nice copies of the letters to his office.
You remember Fr. Jenkins, right? He used to love Obama.
But lately, he’s changed his tune. Fr. Jenkins spoke out strongly when the HHS news first hit the fan. But since President Obama’s imaginary accommodation, Fr. Jenkins has remained silent on the topic.
Thus the need for these letters to encourage Fr. Jenkins to do the right thing. He has the opportunity to be a hero. It would say a lot if the head of the leading Catholic university – a university that once embraced Obama – would now stand up and say “Mr. President, we will not comply with your unjust law.”
So if you went to Notre Dame, please consider sending a contribution to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also find them on facebook.
May I suggest that your letter appeal strongly and charitably to Fr. Jenkins. Like this one.
Convince him to do the right thing.
Basically, don’t write anything like I would write.
If you didn’t go to Notre Dame or you just can’t be charitable, feel free to speak your mind in the comments below.
Patrick Thornton has a real job (sort of). He did not attend Notre Dame, but he knows some people who did and he sometimes roots for their football team when he remembers to watch their games. He thinks Brian Kelly should be fired because he is pro-choice and kind of loses a lot. The views expressed here may or may not be his own. It depends who’s asking.
