NY Cardinal Timothy Dolan Still Feels 'Burn' of Gay Marriage
Cardinal Timothy Dolan is still whining to the New York Daily News the Church got "burned" by lawmakers when the state passed marriage equality last year:
“We got burned last year when we were told the redefinition of marriage didn’t have much of a chance — and of course it did. Our Senate leaders, we highly appreciated them being with us all along. When they kind of assured us it didn’t have much of a chance — not that we let up, but we probably would have been much more vigorous and even more physically present if we knew there was a chance...We got a little stung, and it could be as much our fault as anyone else’s."
It's not the first time Dolan has claimed Church leaders were deceived.
He has also said same-sex marriage is a "violation of what we consider natural law", called it "Orwellian social engineering", compared it to polygamy, and suggested it is a Communist threat.
Late last week, Pope Benedict commanded U.S. Bishops to defend against same-sex marriage.
