Right-wing Catholics need to look past abortion

Dear Editor: The University of Notre Dame has invited President Obama to speak. Right-wing Catholics have gone ballistic and are demanding that Notre Dame rescind the invitation.

President Obama has a very Christian agenda that includes affordable health care, maintaining Social Security and trying to save the American working class. Right-wing Catholics are associated with the Republican Party and are single-issue folks who have fanatical ideas that if only we could stop abortion, the world would be great. Unfortunately, when they signed up to be Catholics, they never read the Gospels or have forgotten them.
