Catholic protesters arrested at Notre Dame

.- Arrests of those protesting President Barack Obama’s speech and honorary degree at the University of Notre Dame’s commencement ceremony have continued today. One Southern Baptist pastor reported that he witnessed an elderly priest being dragged on the ground by security.

"I wept when I saw my friends arrested and taken to jail," the pastor said in a press release. "They almost broke the arm of a priest who appeared to be in his 80s, by dragging him on the ground."

The pastor, Vision America President Rick Scarborough explained that he participated in the protests to support Catholics in the fight for life.

"Millions of Catholics who were persecuted in their countries of origin came to these shores for religious freedom," Scarborough said. "These hard-working folk built institutions like Notre Dame to educate their children and strengthen their Church."

"Now Notre Dame is honoring Barack Obama, a man Catholics and other Christians should shun, as many of the Catholic bishops have."
