My friends at Boston Catholic Insider do an outstanding job pointing out Cardinal O'Malley's shameless statement AFTER the buffer zone was signed and enacted into law.
Cardinal Sean O’Malley continued his failure to publicly walk the talk on abortion by issuing a statement on his blog opposing the recent enactment of a new buffer zone law in Massachusetts–yet he did nothing in advance of the law’s passage to even try to oppose it.
If he wasn't traveling the country for the last six months making sappy statements and pulling publicity stunts to support the anarchy of opening the borders to illegal immigrants, maybe he could have gotten away with his phony attempt at being indignant.
In fact, in the July 22nd edition of State House News in the Lowell Sun, a reporter observed Cardinal O'Malley at Governor Patrick's office talking about illegal immigration. With the critical timing of the buffer zone law looming, the reporter went out of his way to prod the Cardinal to say something about the buffer zone. The Cardinal said....are you ready?... NO COMMENT!.
What is the point of deliberately doing nothing to oppose the bill and then issuing a statement about how awful it is after it's enacted into law?
