The Spero Forum website reports today (May 7, 2012) that -- in what can only be viewed as a direct challenge to America's Catholic bishops -- Georgetown University, a Jesuit institution of higher learning, has announced that "pro-choice" Catholic Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and lead architect of the Obama administration's assault on religious freedom through the HHS contraception mandate, has been invited to speak at one of Georgetown's commencement ceremonies this month.
The Cardinal Newman Society has posted a petition to protest this outrage at GeorgetownScandal.com. It also has alerted Washington Cardinal Donald Wuerl and sent a letter to Georgetown President John DeGioia, urging him to immediately withdraw the invitation.
Last week, The Cardinal Newman Society released a list of 11 scandalous commencement speakers at Catholic colleges and universities, as well as a report on homosexual "lavender graduations," including one at Georgetown.
In 2008, Archbishop Joseph Naumann of Kansas City told Sebelius -- a Roman Catholic -- to stop receiving the Eucharist until she publicly recants her position on abortion and makes a "worthy sacramental confession."
