This note is to inform you that I am withdrawing my application for the position of Managing Director – Advanced Diagnostics & Therapeutics Initiative (AD&T SAPC).
I take this step with sincere remorse. However, I cannot work for an organization that, through its actions in supporting a monster like Barack Obama, is both intellectually dishonest and morally compromised. The positions taken by Obama and President Jenkins differ in no substantive way from that those taken by Hitler and Pope Pius XII whose 1933 Concordat with Hitler, facilitated the dictator’s rise and, ultimately, the Holocaust.
I have also take the necessary steps to remove all bequests to Notre Dame from my Will and Trusts, have returned my football ticket applications unused, will no longer provide any contributions to the University, and will no longer subscribe to any Notre Dame email or US Postal mailing service(s).
It hurts to have to do this. I loved Notre Dame du lac when I was there from 1972 – 1976, when my son was there from 1987 – 1991, and for the subsequent 16 years.
However, that university is dead, murdered by Malloy and Jenkins and in its place we have a new institution, with no fundamental moral values or a fixed catechism. All that remains is a lesser version of an amoral Ivy League school, where, for example, the taking of a child’s life up to 1 – 2 years is deem reasonable since they are not yet "human", the abortion of fully delivered Downs Syndrome children is allowed by letting them die from lack of food, water, or warmth (since some bureaucrat can predefine that they will not have a happy, cost effective, fulfilling life – whatever that means), and similarly the State can now euthanize the elderly or those injured beyond recovery – again due to the predefinition by some bureaucrat that they will not have a cost effective, fulfilling life.
That is the monster you honored at today’s Commencement. That is the monster to whom you provided a platform and implicit support by allowing him to address today’s Commencement. That is the monster you allowed to soil The Virgin Mary’s image and school.
You should be ashamed of your actions and your inability to stand up for the principles the church claims to hold and defend.
I know I am.
