Obama to Deliver Speech at Georgetown Today
President Barack Obama will deliver a speech on energy security at Georgetown University today.  Many Catholics were outraged in 2009 after Obama delivered a speech in Georgetown's Gaston Hall, because the University complied with a White House request and covered over the monogram "IHS," which is an ancient symbol for the name of Jesus Christ.

A group of 16 national pro-life leaders, led by The Cardinal Newman Society and Students for Life of America, sent a letter to the President of Seattle University calling on him to put an end to the institution's numerous connections to Planned Parenthood and other pro-abortion rights organizations.

The president of Marquette, Fr. Robert Wild, S.J., has directed the Department of Human Resources to now include "registered domestic partner" coverage in the Jesuit University's health insurance plans beginning the first of next year.  Fr.
