    'Three days before House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) is scheduled to deliver the commencement address at Catholic University, dozens of faculty at Catholic colleges — including many from the university — have written the Catholic speaker, criticizing him for having a record “among the worst in Congress” on protecting the poor.

    The letter, released Wednesday, was organized by faculty at Catholic University, the national university of the Catholic Church in Northeast Washington.

    The letter does not protest Boehner’s visit or ask the school to rescind its invitation but urges him to “reawaken your familiarity” with Church teaching on the subject of poverty. It focuses on the 2012 budget Boehner is shepherding, criticizing it for cuts that would hurt the poor and are “particularly cruel to pregnant women and children.” ..."

    Hm, I wonder if people will actually walk out like at Michigan Law School's commencement. Probably not.

    Their 'religion' is more important than actions. They wont do anything.

    The fucking Catholic church is bitching ?!
    Aren't they busy enough defending all of their pedophile priests ?
    With the gazillions they have, they could be feeding every last person on Earth, at least one hot meal a day, plus a place to sleep.
    Fucking hypocrites.
