Wow

Heard at my all-female dorm mass tonight:

“There might be future presidents in this room tonight. If Hillary can do it, you can too!”

The homilist was a Haitian priest, so I’m going to hope he didn’t know the cultural implications of that statement beyond the fact that a woman is running for president, but did you ever think you’d hear a priest support Hillary during a [Notre Dame] Mass?

    I don’t suppose you know if Joe Ross is still rector of Morrisey? He used to actually use a pen on the bible and cross out every reference to “Him” when referring to God and replace it with “God.” He would have praised Hillary, I imagine.

    Just found your blog – ND Alum here. Hope the finals went well!

    Hm, don’t know the rector of Morrissey, but is replacing Him with God such a bad thing? Besides the whole editing the Bible part, I mean. I’m not sure I understand why that would mean he would like Hillary.

    Anyway, welcome! Always nice to meet another Domer! πŸ™‚

    I just re-read my comment and realized that I described what he did but didn’t actually make it clear that I thought he was great for doing it. πŸ™‚ So, no, it wasn’t a bad thing at all. I thought he was brilliant. It was that kind of open mind and free spirit that made me think he might break ranks with conservatives and vote Hillary.

    Merry Christmas!
