That's "Dialogue", Fr. Jenkins.

The Holy Father, not surprisingly, showed how you deal with the most pro-abortion President in US history.

I seem to recall that during Obama's visit to Notre Dame, Notre Dame's president called for "dialogue." He called for it, but didn't do it. What happened at Notre Dame was: Obama gave a speech and and the University gave him an honor.

Now, if Fr. Jenkins and his supporters say "Well, a Commencement ceremony is not the proper place for dialogue," I respond: in that case, your justification by "dialogue" was a smokescreen. I say: that's why you should not have invited him.

The Holy Father, on the other hand, did not call for dialogue with Obama, he did it:

"In the course of their cordial exchanges the conversation turned first of all to questions which are in the interests of all and which constitute a great challenge for the future of every nation and for the true progress of peoples, such as the defence and promotion of life and the right to abide by one’s conscience."

I'm still waiting to hear Fr. Jenkins engage in some "dialogue."

The kicker is the absolutely fabulous gift he bestowed on our president-- the 2008 Vatican document on bioethics. Obama even promised to read it according to one article I read. Maybe afterwards he will at least understand why we feel there is no common ground between life or death. It's just one of those either/or sorts for things.
