Anti-Gay NYC Cardinal Timothy Dolan to Bless Democratic Convention, One Week After Doing Same for GOP

Cardinal Timothy Dolan, an outspoken opponent of equality, will deliver the closing benediction at the Democratic National Convention one week after doing the same for the GOP, RNS reports:

DolanrncThe Obama campaign also revealed Tuesday (Aug. 28) that Sister Simone Campbell, the popular face of the recent “Nuns on the Bus” tour for social justice, will be addressing the Democrats in Charlotte, N.C., the night before Dolan’s appearance.

That is kind of a Catholic “two-fer” that threatens to upstage GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s Catholic outreach and highlights the importance of this swing vote in a deadlocked race.

The Catholic League's Bill Donohue clucks:

Over the past week, Cardinal Dolan has been hammered by liberals for accepting an invitation to give benediction at the Republican National Convention (RNC). Now that he will close both conventions, they look even more foolish...

...The fundamental difference between Cardinal Dolan and these critics comes down to one thing: he is a man of principle and they don’t know how to spell the word. He invited President Obama to the Al Smith Dinner, knowing he would receive flak from some on the right. Then he agreed to speak at the RNC, knowing he would be blasted by some on the left. Now he has accepted an invitation to speak at the DNC and none of his critics—on both the left and the right—can figure him out.

What this shows is that Cardinal Dolan is able to rise above the politics of the moment. But to those who view the world exclusively through the lens of power, this is completely unintelligible.

  1. First, I don't believe in religion - I especially don't believe that Catholicism should even exist.But, that's probably not going to change. That said, I don't believe that religion and politics should mingle, and I don't think there should be a benediction, period. But, tradition calls for a benediction - as inappropriate as that is, at least having the same whore at both conventions kind of takes the wind out of the sails.

  2. First of all you propagandizing whores, as you say, Archbishop Dolan is totally and always will be against marriage as you pretend it should be i.e., If it isn't a male and a female involved it just isn't and never will be Marriage. Get used to it queenie! He doesn't hate anyone. If anyone are bigots, read these articles from frustrated queens filled with bigotry with anyone that doesn't agree with them. Even the non Christians as well as the rest of humanity couldn't care less what you think.
