Catholics are all that.
“We’re going to have outreach to Catholics in a coordinated, organized effort — state by state, diocese by diocese, parish by parish and pew by pew,” Mr. Flaherty said in an interview.
Evidently Cardinal Dolan volunteered to do benediction for both the RNC and DCN. So far, only the RNC has taken him up on it.
Flaherty tells us Romney and Cardinal O'Malley are tight.
Why...Romney even traveled to Rome with the Archbishop..practically held his crozier as the Pope put the red hat on his head.
The luminaries at the DNC must be foaming at the mouth. They thought they put 'the Catholic Vote' out of its power. After four years of trickle-up-poverty "Yes We Can" and "The Changes We Can Believe In" are a dud. Here they are standing face-to-face with a resurrection of that which they were sure they slayed.
What do you think they'll do?
They thought they were save and have already launched a full-fledged persecution against Catholics.
The Bishops and practicing Catholics are suing Obama. The nuts on the bus, oops, I mean nuns on the bus under an edict from Rome to reverse their apostacies or face extinction. They are gorging themselves in swanky hotels, saluting a woman who thinks a race of people are going to hop out of our i-pads on December 21.
Even the waitresses at the hotel turned the lights off to avoid looking at them. One former DNC head of the 'Catholic Vote a convicted sex offender/felon/jailbird for recruiting homeless crack addicts and teenagers for his Columbus Ohio whorehouse. His replacement hustled out of Malta for making an ass of himself.
The are up the creek without a paddle.
This was funny:
The invitation to Cardinal Dolan circumvented church protocol, said the cardinal’s spokesman, Joseph Zwilling. Usually, the local bishop gives the prayer at the convention. So when the Romney campaign asked Cardinal Dolan to deliver the benediction, the cardinal first checked with Bishop Robert Lynch of St. Petersburg, Fla., who gave his approval, Mr. Zwilling said.
Bishop Lynch was busy. Had to paint his toenails, catch up on laundry.
Cardinal Dolan accepted but said that he would be giving only a prayer, not an endorsement, Mr. Zwilling said. The cardinal also said that he had informed the Democratic Party that he would accept a similar invitation from it. A spokesman for the Obama campaign said that it had not offered one but suggested that it was close to announcing its religious lineup.
The co-chairmen of Catholics for Obama are scholars, prominent laypeople like Victoria Reggie Kennedy, the widow of Senator Ted Kennedy, and politicians like Gov. Martin O’Malley of Maryland, Representative Tim Ryan of Ohio and Senator Richard J. Durbin of Illinois.
A doozy of a lineup ought to come out of that think tank.
Anybody know anything about the local bishop? His credentials would lead one to suspect he's a Roman.
What do you think? Shall we guess?
Here are my top three predictions on religious benediction at the Dems Conference.
3. Sandra Fluke will stand on the stage and throw out condoms with crosses on them.
2. Steve Krueger and Patrick Whelan will douse the Barack and Joe with holy water.
1. They will all parade in behind a picture of Cardinal O'Malley between Jack Connors and the Kennedy widows.
If they hurry, Barbara Hubbard might be available.
