It was literally an act of God that I got in. Someone gave me a name of a graduating student which I was able to use to get past security. The security guard knew the student though, and just talked to him 30 seconds before I told him that I knew the student. If I would have got to the guard 30 seconds earlier, I would not have got in.
Other members of our group spoke up also and were promptly escorted out. Needless to say we are not allowed on the campus for a year. Like I want to step into that hell hole anyway right?
The reaction from the crowd at a Catholic university really disturbed me, but what disturbed me even more was the lack of pro-lifers present. I am going to name all of the groups that I know were in attendance:
- The Society for Truth and Justice
- Defend Life
- Tradition, Family, and Property
There have been many groups, including the Cardinal Newman Society and the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, that have made public statements concerning the Georgetown scandal, and have even raised money off of it. While we applaud their words, words are not enough. As far as I know these groups did not even make an appearance at Georgetown during the commencement. Are you starting to see that something is wrong with this picture?
This makes me really upset that pro-life groups send out emails, raising money on a certain scandal, and then they don't even show up to the event!
Meanwhile, Cardinal Wuerl, Archbishop of Washington DC, remains silent in the face of this outrage; he has failed in his duty to publicly rebuke Georgetown University for inviting Sebelius. And please don't tell me that he did say something, an anonymous editorial in the local Catholic newspaper does not count.
Cardinal Henry Newman, in his book Apologia Pro Vita Sua, spoke to the type of cowardice that Cardinal Wuerl is now displaying:
