Notre Dame to ND88 “Off With Your Heads!”

Lifesite News reports:

In what may be his first public statement on the situation of 88 pro-life protesters arrested on campus last May, University of Notre Dame President Fr. John Jenkins has suggested that the protesters deserve to continue facing up to a year in jail and a $5,000 fine because they were unruly and led by individuals who “threatened peace and order.”The protesters, known as the “Notre Dame 88” (ND88) were arrested for trespassing on Notre Dame’s campus as they peacefully prayed or otherwise symbolized their disagreement with the university for honoring President Obama with the commencement address and an honorary law degree May 17.

Witnesses state that the pro-lifers were arrested while pro-Obama protesters were allowed to roam free – which the ND88’s defense attorney says indicates the pro-lifers were selectively punished simply because of their message.
