Seems to be about right…
If it isn’t made in a factory, it isn’t happening.

Ahh, the state of things:
Cardinal Timothy Dolan called on Roman Catholic worshippers Saturday to become more involved in politics as the church stands against the government…
Cardinal Dolan is also president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.
Speaking at Holy Trinity Diocesan High School in Hicksville, the spiritual leader of the Archdiocese of New York said the U.S. government is engaged in “an unwarranted, unprecedented radical intrusion.”
Cardinal Timothy Dolan called on Roman Catholic worshippers Saturday to become more involved in politics as the church stands against the government in what he called a “freedom of religion battle
“We’re not trying to impose our teachings on anybody,” said Dolan in his 45-minute speech to a packed auditorium of about 1,000 people. “We’re simply saying, don’t impose your teaching upon us and make us do as a church what we find unconscionable to do.” [Employers have can opt out – they don’t “have” to do anything].
Proponents say the plan is a breakthrough for women’s rights, but Dolan and other leaders say it violates religious freedom.
No one is making you do anything, you self-righteous self-centered tool. The law states that you can opt out. The president himself has come forward and explained this to dumber members of our society who have trouble with the ‘reading’ and the ‘learning’. (And the ultra-stupid seem to keep turning up with bibles in their hands for some reason).
High ranking leaders speaking to impressionable, using ‘the word of God’ as their justification for using aggressive verbage like ‘battle’, speaking about how America is threatening their religions, talking about the USA as radicals….thin line.
So this idiot is calling for a religious battle against the government. If he were a high-ranking member of a different monotheistic religion…there would be an outcry. The line between this Cardinal encouraging his followers to join a religious battle against the “radical” United States, and a Muslim cleric who is encouraging his followers to join a religious battle against the United States….is a thin line.
She’s burying her own mother and this asshole is…unbelievable. I refuse to believe the Jesus would deny communion to a member of the church, even if they are a sinner. If this priest is denying sacraments to sinners, then he needs to deny communion to all sinners.
A Maryland lesbian who was denied Communion by a Catholic priest while attending her mother’s funeral is speaking out about her experience.
“I approached [Father Marcel Guarnizo of Gaithersburg’s Saint John Neumann Catholic Church] to receive communion, and at that moment, he placed his hand over the bowl containing the Eucharist and looked into my eyes and said, ‘I cannot give you Communion because you live with a woman, and in the eyes of the church, that is a sin.'”
Johnson, 51, now says that Father Marcel also left the altar as she was delivering her eulogy.
Though Johnson has reached out via an email, the priest has yet to apologize.
