Controversy Commences at Notre Dame Over Obama Speech

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?
