God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

About Me

My photo
A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

The Al Smith Dinner and Obama's invitation.

The latest topic to get online fellow Catholics to sing like the Temptations is the invitation of El Presidente to the Al Smith Dinner in NYC.

This was done by Cardinal Dolan, who has been very blunt and outspoken on the topic of the HHS mandate and it's requirement for Catholics to violate Church teaching. Now a large portion of the blogosphere faithful are screaming the cardinal is Judas reincarnated, another portion is saying he's a world class fool and a smaller portion is adopting a "wait and see" attitude.

I'm with the last group. The fat lady hasn't sung to end this particular drama yet. Let's see what develops. Nobody knows where this will go. Maybe nowhere fast. But the naivete of clerics DOES have a limit, witness the Pope's refusal to be photographed with Nancy Pelosi when he gave her an audience. That particular incident, though not a slam dunk defeat for Pelosi, was definitely in her loss column.

So maybe the cardinal is a horse's ass, maybe he's gone to the dark side, maybe theres more going on than we can see at present. If it's the last option I'm sure we'll have a better idea of what it all means the morning after the dinner.

SV, are you aware that Cdl. Dolan has attended services of an openly gay-friendly parish in his archdiocese? Voris did a Vortex on it a few months back. Go to www.youtube.com/watch/v=JtODpOOwSZg and see for yourself. I think this answered the question about Dolan's moral fiber.

Also, google Dolan and St francis Xavier parish for more information on Dolan's moral squishiness.

Cardinal Dolan made a statement today, but I can't find it. I think Aggie Catholics' blog has it?
