Newt Gingrich recently expressed his disapproval of Notre Dame's decision to host President Obama as the commencement speaker in less than 140 characters. He tweeted: "It is sad to see notre dame invite president obama to give the commencement address Since his policies are so anti catholic values."
Newt, the twice-divorced former speaker of the house who will become a Catholic this weekend, isn't the only person upset. Many at Notre Dame disapprove of Obama's stance on abortion and stem cell research. Others think the ceremony will turn into a circus and distract from the ceremony. Finally, some students and community members feel honored to host the president.
Are you surprised Obama's planned speech at Notre Dame is causing such a controversy?
