Is there anyone better suited to fully exploit the freedoms and advantage of blogging than Alan Keyes? I dare say not.
Now that he has his own blog, Keyes is free to write posts about whatever comes to mind without regard to length or coherence and to indulge his penchant for hyperbole ‘till his heart’s content, thus leading to rambling posts such as this in which he blasts the University of Notre Dame for inviting President Obama, whom he calls “the living incarnation of the glamour of evil,” to deliver the Commencement Address:
Apparently the Catholic folks at Notre Dame University have no more respect for the Baptismal vows they renew every Easter than their invited Commencement Speaker this year has for the Presidential Oath of Office. At this moment in time, Barack Obama is the living incarnation of the glamour of evil. His smiley tones and non-threatening manner mask a studied commitment to the promotion of the most deadly form of evil in the world today- the cult of abortion centered on the ritual of child sacrifice. Obama has moved with impetuous determination to prove his claim to the mantle of High Priest of the Worldwide Abortion cult. With Executive orders he has shifted the resources of the U.S. government behind the global implementation of abortion. He has declared open season on embryonic human life. He has appointed enthusiastic political and judicial acolytes of this cult of death to high positions in the Executive and Judicial branches.
Keyes goes on to declare that Notre Dame’s decision cannot be justified in any way, saying that Obama’s historic election is nothing of the sort:
How can one who withdraws the protection of God’s ordained equality of rights from innocent, helpless children claim to represent the triumph of justice over the very evils, born of greed and passion, unleashed by disregard for that equality? The vicious heart of selfish passion that perverted the souls of slave masters or self-worshiping lynch mobs, is the same heart offered in service to the Father of lies and evil in the abortion cult.
Keyes declares Obama to be “the incarnation of what the Catholic Church identifies as the epitome of evil in the world today” and proclaims that “Notre Dame’s invitation to Obama is a slavish capitulation to the glamour of evil,” lamenting that while evil men such as Obama are hailed and honored, godly men such as himself are ridiculed and mocked:
Across America there are people of many different hues and denominations who devote themselves to the protection of innocent life, respect for the God-ordained family, and promotion of social justice in ways that conform with the principle of subsidiarity that respects human responsibility before God for the exercise of freedom His will for us makes possible. The world does not elevate them to platforms of power. Indeed it threatens them with punishment; ridicules and reviles their single-hearted devotion to Christ’s example; relegates them to what it believes are the dingy fringes of respectability and esteem.
At least this time he didn’t compare himself to abortion.
It is also worth pointing out that Rick Scarborough has made Keyes’ rant the subject of his latest “Rick Scarborough Report,” in which he declares that “Dr. Keyes is dead on and I commend him for his bold and forthright declaration.”
