Former presidential candidate and WND columnist Alan Keyes was arrested this afternoon, along with 21 others, on charges of trespassing while he was protesting against Barack Obama’s abortion record at the University of Notre Dame.
As WND reported, University President John Jenkins prompted national outrage when he invited the pro-abortion president to speak at the university’s May 17 commencement. Despite at least 55 bishops publicly denouncing or questioning the university’s decision, Jenkins has refused to rescind the offer.
“I will step foot on the Notre Dame campus to lift up the standard that protects the life of the innocent children of this and every generation,” Keyes said in a statement prior to his arrest. “I will do it all day and every day from now until the Master comes if need be, though it means I shall be housed every day in the prison house of lies and injustice that Obama, Jenkins and their minions now mean to construct for those who will never be still and silent in the face of their mockery of God and justice, their celebration of evil.” Click here for more of this story.
