Obama Causes Controversy at Norte Dame

Despite Obama's pro-choice beliefs which offend many catholics, the school has decided to stand by its tradition of having Presidents come and speak, the Star Tribune reported.
Student expressed outrage at an invitation extended by Notre Dame to President Obama to speak at the commencement ceremony in May.
Alumni's have reported "throwing away their sweatshirts", while others boycott attending commencement and recently accepted high school seniors are now questioning their decision, according to the Tribune.
But for all of the disgust, there is also a lot of excitement among students on campus. One conservative student said it was an honor.
Some conservative groups have already expressed the wish to protest, while liberal students have expressed fear it will make Notre Dame look narrow minded, citing that no one will want to attend Notre Dame if that is the image they portray.
