This I've got to see.
What notorious Catholics are defending the birdbrained decision to let Obama hold a public canonization?
Anyone with a reputation for faithfulness to the tenets of the Catholic Church?
“To emphasize these criticisms as much as the press does, it’s not a reflection of the reality of the church, and to me it’s noise,’’ said the Rev. Michael C. McFarland, president of the College of the Holy Cross.
“When all is said and done, the cardinal deserves great credit for not paying attention to the critics, and doing what his gut told him to do for the whole church,’’ said Thomas P. O’Neill III,
And Sister Janet Eisner, president of Emmanuel College, said she was drafting a note to thank O’Malley for attending the funeral.
Janet Eisner had John Kerry speak at my daughter's commencement in 2004. The others are also notorious dissenters of the Catholic religion.
There was one individual who claims he's very, very, very prolife - I've never heard of the guy - somewhat amazing for one of the most prominent prolife leaders in Massachusetts - but I'll have to do some diligence on seeing whether he's in the prolife movement and/or what he's had to say defending life. Near as I know, the Vagina Monologues were played out at the school this year and every year - but I'll do some fact checking.
The Rev. Mark T. Cregan, president of Stonehill College, called himself “very, very, very prolife,’’ but also supported the cardinal, saying he was right to attend the funeral, despite the predictable controversy that ensued.
Not a very convincing line up.
One is left to conclude that the calls Michael Paulson made to actual people who are well-known for faithfulness to the teachings of the Church in the public square wouldn't get on board defending the decision.
