Tonight: Text 360°

Barack Obama starts his first college commencement tour as president tonight, speaking to graduates of Arizona State University.

His graduation speech at Notre Dame this Sunday is more controversial because many believe a president whose whose views on abortion and stem cell research run counter to church teachings should not be honored at a Catholic university.

We'll be exploring this issue tonight. What are your questions? Let us know!

Send us a text message with your question to 94553, and you might hear it on air!

The message MUST start with the letters AC, and then a space, then your name and question. If you do not include AC first with a space, we will not receive your text.

    do they only have speakers who agree 100 % with everything the Catholic church believes? It seems the field would be severely narrowed...

    AC I am sure President Obama is not going to Notre Dame to proselytize. He is going to inspire a new generation. My question is:
    What has happened to the plinciple of
    separation of church and state? Are not the two mutually excusive in our society?

    These are graduates, right? Accordingly, I expect that Notre Dame has done its job as a university and taught them how to think. As thinking persons, they should not only expect to hear from people who think differently, but they should welcome the occasion. Besides, who says that all Catholics think alike anyway?
