Controversial Sister To Accept Award At USF

V.P Joseph Biden with Sr. Carol Keehan
Later this month, the University of San Francisco will honor the Catholic Health Association president who has received the scorn of pro-life Catholics across the country for enabling passage of the abortion-funding ObamaCare law. Sr. Carol Keehan, the president and CEO of the CHA, is “credited” with giving Rep. Bart Stupak and other supposedly pro-life Democrats the political and religious cover they needed to reverse their positions against the measure because it lacked any bill-wide language prohibiting abortion funding with taxpaper dollars. The Catholic bishops, who wanted to support a health care bill but couldn’t do so because of the taxpayer financing of abortion, says Keehan’s compromise resulted in “a wound to Catholic unity.”
The Cardinal Newman Society is urging USF to rescind the scheduled honor. “It is unspeakable that the University of San Francisco should choose to honor someone who severely damaged pro-life efforts in this nation and undermined the express will of the U.S. bishops,” said Patrick Reilly, the president of the Catholic watchdog group. “The Cardinal Newman Society calls on the President of USF to rescind the offer of this honor and speaking platform to Sr. Keehan.”

USF is a Jesuit school. Jesuit school's have leftist ideology as their religion, not Catholicism. Sister Keehan is a leftist prophetess, so of course she's going to be honored by USF. Do you think that USF or the Jesuits working there care one whit about Catholic faith or morality in their authentic understanding? "Jesuit" ceased being synonymous with "Catholic" a long time ago. Saint Ignatius of Loyola weeps in heaven.

Wow--you seem angry at the Jesuits. Who made you the chief judge for determining what constitutes a "real" Catholic?
