SOUTH BEND, Ind., May 19 /Christian Newswire/ — While Obama addressed Notre Dame’s commencement, urging pro-lifers to surrender the rhetoric and actions of political and cultural conflict, over 40 brave souls were in jail or police custody for walking on campus and praying. Thos arrested were holding an image of Mary, or an image of an unborn child.

Two of those arrested are still in jail; Arnold Matheson, age 82, of  Poughkeepsie  NY; and Robert Buchta, age 56  of Center Reach, Long Island. (Jail addresses below.)

Among those arrested was Miss Norma McCorvey, the “Jane Roe” of Roe vs. Wade, and Fr. Norman Weslin, the Founder of Lambs of Christ.

Miss McCorvey stated:

“I have never been arrested at a pro-life event, but I knew in my heart that God wanted me to bear witness against what was happening at Notre Dame. My request to Mr. Obama is this: stop the killing; overturn Roe vs. Wade.”

The irony of Ms. McCorvey’s and the other pro-lifers arrests will be a part of the discussion for years to come; Catholics and Evangelicals were behind bars for defending Life and Justice; while President Obama was honored even though he betrays justice and slays the innocent through his national and international policies.

As of 5:00 PM, May 19, everyone has been bailed out except for two courageous prisoners of conscience. As stated, they are: Arnold Matheson, age 82, of  Poughkeepsie  NY; and Robert Buchta, age 56  of Center Reach, Long Island.

Mr. Matheson and Mr. Buchta, have decided to stay in jail rather than post bail as a further witness for the innocent, and a witness against Notre Dame’s betrayal of Church teaching and the innocent babies they are charged to defend.

They will remain in custody at least until their hearing on June 8th…nearly three weeks from now.

Christians are asked for three things:

1) Please pray for Mr. Matheson and Mr. Buchta. Pray for their safety, and that their witness would reach Pope Benedict, and millions of the faithful around the world.

2) Please call Fr. Jenkins’ office, and politely ask that the charges against these brave men be dismissed. It is an OUTRAGE and a SCANDAL that these men are behind bars at the behest of Notre Dame.

The Main switchboard is: 574-631-5000

Fr. Jenkins office phone number is: 574-631-3903

3) Please write these brave men a note of encouragement. Let them know that they are heroes, that you are praying for them, and that you have called Fr. Jenkins to ask that the charges against them be dropped.

Dear Friend of Stop Obama Notre Dame:

What follows is the press release we sent out a few hours ago. WE have so many things happening, I do not have time to say much more. I beg your prayers for the prisoners.

For Immediate release:

Dateline: Notre Dame

Contact: Randall Terry 904-687-9804

Former U.S. Ambassador and Presidential candidate Dr. Alan Keyes is currently in Jail; along with over 20 anti abortion activists.

They were arrested at Notre Dame for peacefully, quietly, walking on campus with baby carriages carrying dolls covered with stage blood.

Randall Terry, leader of StopObamaNotreDame, states:

“Notre Dame arrests Christians who defend babies, and honors a man who kills them.This is an open wound in the Church. The question is this: Will a Catholic Bishop step up and demand this betrayal of the Faith be brought to a halt?”

Video of arrests: A You Tube video will be posted soon of the arrests. Please keep checking at www.StopObamaNotreDame.com
