Cathy Lynn Grossman asks who is a good Catholic
Tom Smith

Well, this is pretty dumb.  But in a way, I like it.  I think by this reasoning, since Professor Glendon was appointed envoy to the Vatican by Evil Incarnate (that is, George W. You Know Who), and she is too good to accept the Laetare Medal from Notre Dame, this must mean that anybody who did not sully themselves with an association with the Hated One must be very good indeed!  So that means that I must have more ethical wiggle room than a catepillar in a terrorist's torture cell.  I call that pretty comforting.  Fast cars and faster persons of the gender of my choice, here I come!  And if somebody wants to give me a medal, well bring it on.

On a related point, I really think it is time for all good Obamabots to gang up on Professor Glendon just like our Faith & Reason Blogger at USA Today.  Who precisely does the Professor think she is?  Just because her conscience and 40 US Bishops and various fancy documents are telling her something is wrong, she is going to drizzle on Obama's parade?  What nerve.  Lah-dee-dah.  Little Miss Moral Paticularity.  She probably thinks a fetus is person and all that rubbish.  I mean, duh, Professor, get a life!  Have some fun!  Let your hair down!  You only live once!  If you're lucky! In my day, harumph, it was Country first and God second.  Just because Notre Dame wants to use you to provide it cover when it is being used by Obama to provide cover to Catholics who don't want follow Church doctrine, that's hardly reason to get all high and mighty.  Nobody likes a party pooper.  

Speaking of medals, I can't resist putting this in:

Grossman's arguments lack depth and credibility. And they just sound stupid. I wonder if she realizes how grotesquely obvious she is? You'd think she'd at least pretend to be mildly objective, but her hate for Evil Incarnate is so obvious it is ridiculous.

Tom: "[R]easoning"?

kdupps: "[A]rguments"?

I think you guys are being too generous. I wouldn't even go so far as to call it bad reasoning or fallacious argument. What argument? What reasoning? All I see is sarcasm and innuendo.

Notre Dame should know better - after all, there it is "God, Country, Notre Dame" above the entrance to the Basilica.

And that movie still makes me tear up a bit.

Life is a great big canvas, and you should throw all the paint on it you can.
