ALAN KEYES ARRESTED
By Helaine Chersonsky,
American Conservative Republican;
Yesterday, May 12, Sean Hannity interviewed conservative presidential candidate Alan Keyes on his radio show after Keyes was released following his arrest in South Bend, Indiana. Keyes and other pro-life supporters were arrested as they protested the forthcoming commencement speech this Sunday by President Barack Obama at Notre Dame. Keyes stated that it was scandalous for the Catholic university of Notre Dame to invite Obama to address the graduating senior class. He proceeded to give an in-depth analysis of the word "scandalous" as endangering each individual soul's salvation who goes along with this outrageous and contradictory invitation on the part of Notre Dame to the man who is most responsive and responsible to the pro-abortion industry in his administration. I was profoundly aware of how clear and incisive Ambassador Keyes is when he is defending both Christianity and the pro-life movement. I remember a long ago trip to South Bend to tour Notre Dame and how impressed I was with the ornate Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ -it was magnificent. Let us hope that the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ does not have to break because of the offense of the President of Notre Dame.
Alan Keyes wrote the following on his blog on

Forgive Us Our Trespasses
[FYI: This past weekend Fox news reported the arrest of Randall Terry as he protested against Notre Dame's invitation and honorary degree for Barack Obama. (See Notre Dame: Promoting the Glamour of Evil, and An Open Letter to Father Jenkins.) According to the report "Terry was taken to the St. Joseph County Jail on criminal trespass charges." He has since been released after posting a bond. In light of this occurrence, I feel bound in conscience to make the following statement, commitment and call to all who labor in defense of the God given and unalienable right to life.]
With the arrest of pro-life servant Randall Terry, Father Jenkins and the University administration at Notre Dame take their adulation of evil to a new level of spiritual atrocity.
In a little less than two weeks they will welcome to the university campus a man who represents the most abominable and extreme commitment ever known in US politics to destroying the God given right to life of innocent human offspring. With their actions and the "honor" they confer upon Obama, they will actively promote the lie that it is possible to dishonor God blatantly and unashamedly, yet be somehow "honorable" in the eyes of those who profess faith in Jesus Christ.
