Parents with children who study at the Catholic missioned University of Notre Dame need to ask themselves: ‘What is Notre Dame teaching my child?’
Senior students at the university say the presence of Vice President Mike Pence during this year’s May 21st Commencement Ceremony will make them—“feel unsafe”.
Shouldn’t their parents be asking: “Who taught these students to fear the vice president of the United States of America?”
How rational is that kind of fear, and why would the business world find room for students who fear that way?
“Vice President Mike Pence’s scheduled commencement speech at the University of Notre Dame has prompted a protest by senior students who say that Pence’s presence on campus will make them “feel unsafe.”
“Students Immane Mondane and Jourdyhn Williams have started a #NotMyCommencementSpeaker campaign against Pence’s May 21 address. (FoxNews, April 12, 2017)
“The campaign consists of students holding white boards featuring quotes from Pence that are “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, offensive, or ostracizing” to members of the Notre Dame community.”
The political use of ‘Fake Fear’ is as big a threat to civil society as is ‘Fake News’.
