Boston cardinal
to boycott college

Boston cardinal to boycott college commencement

BOSTON — Boston Cardinal Sean P. O'Malley will not attend Boston College's commencement this year because the college planned to honor the prime minister of Ireland, who has supported a bill to introduce legalized abortion in that country.

In a statement May 10, Cardinal O'Malley said he cannot support the Jesuit-run university when it confers an honorary degree on Prime Minister Enda Kenny at commencement ceremonies May 20 — an event traditionally attended by Boston's archbishop.
