On Wednesday, Chris Korzen of Catholics United welcomed Notre Dame's decision to host President Barack Obama and expressed his frustration with the opposition of many Catholics to the invitation. Some, though, have suggested that the group was so quick to express support for Gov. Kathleen Sebelius' nomination to be the next HHS Secretary because they were tipped by the White House, a claim they deny.
Korzen, Executive Director of Catholics United, wrote that President Obama's appearance at "Notre Dame will be nothing short of an honor for all Catholics." Citing Obama's historic election and polices that "promote the common good resonate strongly with Catholics of all political and ethnic backgrounds."
