Earlier this month we posted a segment of Bishop Daniel Jenky’s Homily comparing President Obama to Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin, arguing that the President is “following a similar path” as the two dictators:
Jenky has faced criticisms from groups including the Anti-Defamation League and Faithful America, which organized a petition asking Jenky to apologize. Over eighty faculty members of the University of Notre Dame, where Jenky serves as a member of its Board of Fellows, in a letter said that they found it “profoundly offensive” to “compare the president’s actions with those whose genocidal policies murdered tens of millions of people,” asserting that “it would be in the best interest of Notre Dame if Jenky resigned from the University’s Board of Fellows if he is unwilling to renounce loudly and publicly this destructive analogy.”
Unsurprisingly, Operation Rescue founder and “presidential candidate” Randall Terry is rushing to Jenky’s defense with a planned press conference at Notre Dame and a letter demanding the faculty members protesting Jenky to resign or repent before they face God’s judgment:
Dear esteemed faculty of Notre Dame,
Have you actually read Bishop Jenky’s homily that you so forcefully condemn?
There was not one word in his homily – not one syllable – that was not true. With pathos and charity, he upheld the teachings of the Catholic Church, defended human life and liberty, and rightly rebuked the President for his actions.
You stated that Bishop Jenky showed an “ignorance of history, [and an] insensitivity to victims of genocide.” It is you who show a profound ignorance of the history; it is you who show a calloused insensitivity to the victims of the abortion holocaust…the millions of babies who are being murdered under Obama’s policies, whose mangled bodies are thrown in sewers and landfills.
Obama is clearly at war with the Catholic Church’s teachings on human life and liberty; he is clearly promoting the genocide of millions of babies; and he is clearly seeking to coerce the Church to participate in his crimes against humanity.
Have you no shame? You clearly have little honor, and even less regard for innocent human life. There was not one word – not one syllable – in your letter that condemned or confronted the atrocities being committed by Obama. By your words and your omissions, you show your own treachery against innocent human life, and the teachings of the Church. You have betrayed Jesus Christ, Mother Church, and the babies who are being slaughtered.
The souls of the innocent – who have been dispatched into eternity under Obama’s evils – will testify against you.
We call on you to repent, or to at least have the decency to resign from a University that bears the Holy Name of the Mother of God.
May God have mercy on your souls. You are going to need it.
