Francis Beckwith of Return to Rome will be speaking at Notre Dame this weekend. And he’s not going to shy away from the issue of Obama being honored there.

I emailed him earlier today and he wrote back that he’s currently working on the speech. He wrote on his blog:

I will be giving a lecture at the conference on Saturday, March 28, at 2:15 pm. It will be held in the Jordan Hall of Science (room 101). Entitled, “What the Abortion Debate is Really About,” I am planning to address in my lecture the controversy surrounding the University of Notre Dame’s invitation to President Obama to receive an honorary doctorate of laws as well as deliver the commencement address at the school’s May 17 graduation exercises.

Can’t wait to hear what he said.
