In addition to his ability to find the best pizza and pint of beer in Lourdes, Fr. Byers (our favorite Lourdes chaplain) always "tells it like it is." His recent comments about the Notre Dame scandal:
"Notre Dame University doesn’t understand that there can’t be a legitimate debate on abortion when the main speakers are silenced. Obama is not interested in debate with his little opponents. He’s interested in shoving his views into their faces with with a scalpel, mashing that scalpel around in their faces, then down their throats and into their beating hearts, where he gives it a final twist. Little babies have no voice, not even to cry, with Obama.
He’s just in error, you say? He’s nice, you say?
Error has no rights. Error does not justify.
The natural law is written on everyone’s heart, including Obama’s.
He knows it’s wrong.
Obama visits France. Will he ever visit Lourdes as well, just to show how "Catholic-minded" he is? He should know that the Immaculate Conception carried our Lord in her womb for nine months and gave birth to Him, alive. But Obama and Hillary think the same. Hillary went to Guadalupe, and then to Planned Parenthood to receive an award.
But I invite Obama to come here and have a debate in the grotto. He will lose. Why? Because I’ll say the whole truth about the Natural Law. That won’t happen at Notre Dame, will it? Surely not in a way that Obama will understand. He will voice his “respect” for those who disagree with him, ever so magnanimously… And everyone will forget about the more than a million babies slaughtered every year with his full backing."
