.- Benedictine University has invited pro-abortion Illinois Democratic senator Barack Obama to speak to its student body Oct. 5.

Catholic journalist and commentator Matt Abbott has reported on the upcoming scheduled event and also pointed out Obama’s support for same-sex marriage.

Obama reportedly opposes a Constitutional Amendment, which bans same-sex marriage. The senator, however, argues that he is not in favor of same-sex marriage, only in favor of civil unions, Abbott points out.

Abbott also cites a column on IllinoisLeader.com, in which former nurse and pro-life activist Jill Stanek testifies that that Obama, in his functions as a senator, has repeatedly voted against the Born Alive Infants Protection Act.

The university also has invited Obama’s opponent, pro-life Republican Alan Keyes.

Concerns can be expressed to Benedictine University at [email protected].
