What Happened to Notre Dame? - Paperback

[EAN: 9781587319204], Neubuch, [PU: St. Augustines Press], ALFRED J. FREDDOSO,CHARLES E. RICE,HISTORY AND THEORY, Education|Aims & Objectives, Paperback. 224 pages. Dimensions: 8.9in. x 5.9in. x 0.7in.When the University of Notre Dame announced that President Barack Obama would speak at its 2009 Commencement and would receive an honorary doctor of laws degree, the reaction was more than anyone expected. Students, faculty, alumni, and friends of Notre Dame denounced the honoring of Obama, who is the most relentlessly pro-abortion public official in the world. Beyond abortion, Obama has taken steps to withdraw from health-care professionals the right of conscientious objection. Among them are thousands of Notre Dame alumni who will be forced to choose between continuing their profession and participating in activities they view as immoral, including the execution of the unborn. And they will be forced to that choice by the politician upon whom their alma mater confers its highest honors. (Mary Ann Glendon, distinguished Harvard law professor and former ambassador to the Vatican, felt obliged to turn down the prestigious Laetare Medal because of this. )Notre Dames honoring of Obama is not merely a Catholic thing. Many thousands of citizens with no Catholic or Notre Dame connections have protested it. They see it as a capitulation of faith to expedience and the pursuit of vain prestige. Obamas record and stated purposes are hostile to the most basic truths of faith and the natural law affirmed by the Catholic Church and by many others. Four decades ago, in 1967, the major Catholic universities declared their autonomy from the Catholic Church in the Land OLakes Declaration. The honoring of Obama reflects the replacement by those universities of the benign authority of the Church with the politically correct standards of the secular academic establishment and, especially, of the government. There is a lesson here for all Americans. Notre Dame fell into relativism and expediency because it rejected the Church as the authentic interpreter of the moral law. In this post-Christian era, American culture is following a similar path by reducing morality to the unguided consensus of individual choices. If no code of right and wrong has moral authority not even the Ten Commandments then society is ruled by the conflict of interests, and might makes right. The jurisprudence of such relativism is legal positivism in which no law can be criticized as unjust because no one can know what is just. What Happened to Notre Dame by Charles E. Rice, with a Preface by Ralph McInerny and Introduction by Alfred Freddoso three of Notre Dames most distinguished scholars, who together have served the University 124 years first recounts the details of Notre Dames honoring of President Obama. It then examines the succession of fall-back excuses offered by the Notre Dame President Rev. John I. Jenkins, c. s. c. , and University publicists to justify Notre Dames defiance of the nations bishops and of Catholic teaching. But Rice is not content with mere reportage. What Happened to Notre Dame diagnoses the problems roots by first providing an overview of the Land OLakes Declaration, its inception and its aftermath, including the ways in which its false autonomy from the Church has led to an erosion of the Catholic identity of Notre Dame and other Catholic universities. Then, it offers a cure. Christ, who is God, is the author of the divine law and the natural law. The book presents reasons why an acknowledged interpreter of these laws is necessary, and why that interpreter has to be the Pope exercising the Magisterium, or teaching authority of the Church. And it shows why it is so important that we have such a moral interpreter for all citizens and not just for Catholics. The alternative is what Pope Benedict XVI calls the dictatorship of relativism, which the book analyzes. Even for those who do not share the Catholic faith, our reason leads us to conclude that the natural law is the only moral code This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.
