quick thoughts on Obama at Notre Dame

It seems to me that, for anyone who does not regularly follow the news or pay close attention to politics, President Obama's presence at arguably the nation's most publicly recognizable Catholic university can only be seen as a sign of Catholic approval of the man and his policies. Due to the nature of modern media, whatever dialogue may occur will only be heard by a select few who are listening for it in the first place. Most people will hear the news and say, "oh, yeah, those Catholics love Obama. Wasn't he just happily received by Notre Dame?" Considering then his obscene toleration of the grave and great evil of abortion, one must conclude that this visit only results in scandal, both within and without the Church.

Someone at Mirror Of Justice pointed out this passage from the USCCB:
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.
