What is really perplexing to us here is the fact that Cardinal Dolan actually thinks he's acting as a Catholic Prelate should Act. Do you all remember the when Jesus brought out His "Woe to You..." diatribe against the Pharisees and Scribes? Isn't what Cardinal Dolan doing sort of reminiscent of the same thing that the Pharisees and Scribes were doing?
We don't normally get involved in the political aspects of what these folks do unless they are truly bad. Want a refresher on Dolan? How about This One?
Or maybe This One? And of course, there is always This One!
Well, now there is a new one to look at. The hits just keep on coming. When is The Vatican going to realize the USCCB is not doing it's job. When are they going to wake up to the fact that the USCCB is using the Catholic Church as a "political tool" to destroy it's credibility in the US and turn Catholics away from the Church of Rome? This new one? "You've Been Dolanized!" Rod Dreher has put up a Post on The American Conservative that goes into detail of what happened and the capitulation of Dolan.
Monsignor Charles Pope of the Archdiocese of Washington posted on that archdiocese's website a short commentary stating that it was time for the Church to withdraw support for events like this...the Archdiocese took down the post. Go figure. I guess they aren't as "Catholic" as they seem. That's why we put the links to the stories above so all can go here and read all about it.
We will be posting this on our sister Blog Non Faithful Catholics as well.
Thank you all for reading and as always
Jesus Is Lord!
