Cardinal Dolan calls for Catholics to join religious battle

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.
