Cardinal O'Malley's straightforwardly correct statement

It is refreshing to see a senior ecclesiastic make a plain and obvious response to a scandalous action by a Catholic College.

Boston College is a Jesuit run university, though you don't actually find that out from their About page. They have invited Enda Kenny, Taoiseach of the Irish Republic, to receive an honorary degree. Enda Kenny has aggressively promoted abortion legislation. Cardinal O'Malley was invited to join the celebrations. He has refused because of the confusion, disappointment and harm caused by this disgraceful act by the university.
