The Tree of Life
2014.04.16 - 10:00am - Michael Hichborn
In the Garden of Eden, as all Christians know, Adam and Eve brought the curse of death upon all mankind by eating the fruit from the tree forbidden by God—the tree of knowledge of good and evil. The tree was in the center of the garden, was beautiful to look at, and produced fruit that appeared desirable. But God had told Adam and Eve that if they ate the fruit of this tree, they would die.

Notre Dame alumni group Sycamore Trust recently contrasted the University’s claim in court that the HHS mandate “would require Notre Dame to commit scandal” with President Fr. John Jenkins’ comments from a recent student Town Hall event that, “I don’t see this as a scandal because we are not giving out contraceptives.”

At the beginning of this year, the University named after Our Lady announced it would comply with the mandate which requires employees of the University to be covered for abortifacients, contraception, and sterilization procedures. The University continues to seek relief from the HHS mandate in the courts. read more...
