More than 90 Notre Dame faculty members demand apology from Peoria bishop for remarks about Obama
Several weeks ago, Daniel Jenky (above), bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Peoria, publicly LIKENED President Obama to the two worst mass murderers of the 20th century.
And now Jenky is facing SHARP CRITICISM from educators at his illustrious — and Catholic — alma mater:
Some faculty members at the University of Notre Dame are calling on Peoria Bishop Daniel Jenky to renounce statements he made during a controversial April 14 homily or resign from the school’s Board of Fellows.
More than 90 faculty members have so far signed the letter, which was released Monday to the Notre Dame student newspaper, according to John Duffy, an English professor at the university.
Jenky, during his homily, analogized the political actions of Adolf Hitler and Josef Stalin to those of President Obama.
“Bishop Jenky’s comments demonstrate ignorance of history, insensitivity to victims of genocide, and absence of judgment,” the letter states.
