Notre Dame to God: Go to Hell

Last weekend folks on the Christian right threw a fit when President Obama--an abortion rights supporter--delivered the Commencement address at the University of Notre Dame. Since it's the nation's top Catholic school, loyal members of our nation's Christian Taliban considered the President's appearance some sort of affront to God. And since God is apparently powerless and can't take care of himself, the protesters decided to defend the almighty with picket signs and poster boards.

Now comes word that Notre Dame's football team wants to revive an old tradition: Annual games in Yankee Stadium against Army. It was one of those games in 1946 that produced a legendary 0-0 tie.

But wait.... New York state voted for Obama in 2008. And thanks to the wackiness that gripped the Notre Dame campus last week, everyone now knows that Obama advocates the formation of abortion squads that would kidnap pregnant women off the streets of America and forcibly remove their fetuses. The state also elected Hillary Clinton--another big abortion rights supporter and alleged relative of the infamous Bill Clinton--to the Senate in 2000. New York has also decided to recognize same sex marriages performed in other states.

Clearly, New York is a hot bed of godless liberal behavior. So why would the good people of Notre Dame want to associate with such heathens? Wouldn't it essentially amount to an endorsement by Notre Dame of abortion and gay marriage?

I'm sure the massive financial windfall from a nationally televised Notre Dame/Army game, to be played in the brand spanking new Yankee Stadium, has absolutely nothing to do with it.
