Cardinal Dolan Will Bestow His Blessings at Democratic National Convention

What a political celebrity Cardinal Dolan has turned out to be.

A jolly, jolly man indeed.

The Cardinal Cushing of Gotham City.

Yesterday, Cardinal Dolan was in the news writing a letter to each of the candidates asking them to sign a 'civility pledge'.

How much weirder is this going to get?

Cdl. Dolan will kiss Obama's bum and tell him it smell like a rose! What a toady!

An amazing man. First he will bless the Party of War and Usury, then he will bless the Party of Sodomy and Abortion.

There are apparently no depths of posturing to which the Cardinal will not sink to.

These are the kinds of nonentities the Pope keeps sending us.

He impressed me more as a "cheese head". Jack Connors and his ilk yell jump, and the hierarchy responds, "how high?"

Ok, I've had enough. Maybe priests should be able to be married. Haven't we had enough of these wimps?

May I humbly remind the good Cardinal Dolan,
as he parades and pontificates under the spotlights
of the political conventions:
there is room for really only ONE super-star in his religion.
As the Cardinal addresses and blesses the Republicans and their billionaire buddies,
as he smiles upon those who would destroy Social Security and voucher Medicare to death,
as he joins with those who readily admit they they “don’t care about the very poor”......
it would be good, it would be very good ...for the dear Cardinal
to remember -and take to heart- the words of his boss,
who once said “What you do for the least of these you do for me”.
Unless perhaps, just perhaps,
the Cardinal is working for someone else these days?
As our Founding Fathers so wisely realized:
Politics, secular power, and Religion do not mix.
They bring out the worst in each other.
And ultimately.....they would destroy each other.

It ain't over til it's over.

We could all pray that Cardinal Dolan pulls a Mother Teresa. Remember when she addressed the Clintons? She started talking about abortion, and Hil and Bill had to listen. Let's pray for the intention that the Cardinal speaks the simple Gospel truth at both conventions.

Anon @ 9:50 AM, Dolan isn't Mother Teresa. MT stood by her principals all her life. She confronted evil. Dolan wants to be Mr. Popularity with all people. He's morally unable to take evil head on. He would rather kiss ass than kick it. What a loser!

You're not praying! ;-)

Seriously, let us pray that good comes out of Cardinal Dolan's prayer at both conventions, that his words are anointed and that hearts are opened, even if just a crack. (I'm not thinking of the delegates as much as the viewers!)

And you can call me "M"...

Anon,I pray about this stuff every day. But, I'm not going to ignore reality. Dolan has a history of being a moral weakling and a total dunce. The man allows a sodomite parish to exist in his diocese, a parish who's services he attended and didn't issue a word of condemnation about the state of affairs there. As for the dunce aspect, anybody who can't figure out that Obama and the Demo's have been playing him for a fool is dumber than a sack of hammers.
