"Better to fight for something than live for nothing."
George S. Patton
Let’s face it: Cardinal Dolan is a Prince of the Church who wants to be King-maker. But as the good Cardinal parades under the spotlights of the political conventions,I’d like to humbly remind him that there is room for only ONE real super-star in his religion. And that is the one who started it. For as the Cardinal addressed and blessed the Republicans and their billionaire buddies,as he smiled upon those who would destroy Social Security & voucher Medicare to death,and as he struted on the stage with those who readily admit they “don’t care about the very poor”......it would have been good for Cardinal Dolan to stop, to remember, and to take to heart the words of his boss, who once said “Whatsoever you do for the least of these - you do for me”.Unless perhaps, ...just perhaps, the Cardinal is working for someone else these days? Just asking.Our Founding Fathers wisely realized that politics, secular power, and religion do not mix.That they bring out the worst in each other , and that ultimately they would destroy each other, and us.A pastor should stick to his pulpit, not political conventions. Period.
