Students Call for Resignation of Notre Dame President After He Attends Confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett
“failed to lead by example, at a time when I’ve asked everyone else in the Notre Dame community to do so”
Notre Dame President Rev. John I. Jenkins contracted Coronavirus after this event, and that is clearly being weaponized against him as well.

Students call on Notre Dame president to resign after attending Amy Coney Barrett nomination ceremony, testing positive for COVID-19
The president of the University of Notre Dame is under fire after he attended the nomination ceremony for Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett and then later tested positive for COVID-19.
University of Notre Dame President Rev. John I. Jenkins attended the Supreme Court nomination ceremony for Amy Coney Barrett, a Notre Dame law alumna, on Sept. 26. On Oct. 2, Jenkins announced he had tested positive for COVID-19, along with several other high profile figures who had attended the same event.
Jenkins issued a public apology on the university’s website for not wearing a mask during the event, stating he “failed to lead by example, at a time when I’ve asked everyone else in the Notre Dame community to do so.”
According to Jenkins, he did not wear a mask during the ceremony and shook hands with a number of people in the Rose Garden.
A video also circulated on Twitter showing Jenkins not wearing a mask.

How about those students just leave?
So sick of this nonsense!
$57,700 is the average tuition cost for Notre Dame University.
This is what parents and students are paying for?
Speaking of penumbral matters (involving, eg, ACB, Joe/Kam, Science, and maybe Roe Revisited), the following might help focus the mind on what truly counts — if we’re to “follow the science” generally, that is.
It’s well past time for greater intellectual honesty and coherency.
Power to the People: Decima Emendationem In Aeternum; Tenth Amendment Forever.
The Father-President failed his academy’s flock. He confessed his transgressions. In this, he’s being, and acting in a manner that is intellectually honest, fair and, above all, decent and respectful.
Forgive him, ye brethren and sisters in Christ, for he shared his humanity with you as a lesson in humility, not to scold. Feel the love, and his sorrow. Grow in the empathy solicited.
Or go ahead, transfer to another school — where, maybe, error and forgiveness are foreign, unpracticed precepts, if you’re more comfortable with that kind of amoral existence.
