Here is your stupid Catholic money quotes of the day.
“Ultimately, I hope that the conversations and the good will that come from this day will contribute to closer relations between Catholics and public officials who make decisions on matters of human life and human dignity,” —Father John Jenkins on the decision to invite President Obama to Notre Dame to receive an honorary degree and deliver the commencement address.
“Holy Cross Father John I. Jenkins, president of the University of Notre Dame, described the Obama administration’s decision as “profoundly disturbing on many levels” and called for “a national dialogue among religious groups, government and the American people to reaffirm our country’s historic respect for freedom of conscience and defense of religious liberty.” —Father Jenkins today 2012 (and again calling for more dialogue.)
Dialogue for Dummies. How is that good will working out Father?

Some topics don't need dialogue. Anybody who thought this administration would be friendly to any Catholics but the ones who check core beliefs at the door should be disillusioned by now.

Dialogue?!? That's something that works only from the liberal side…you see Father they already know everything there's no need for them to "dialogue" with anyone.

Dialogue=compromise. The church is now in an uncompromising position ergo no dialogue.

Kind of like how O-bah-muhh wants to dialog with Iran over making Nukes.
