New York Archbishop Timothy Dolan recently sent some mixed signals on his blog concerning the institution of marriage. According the the New York Times Dolan "is worried that the next step in the marriage debate will be another redefinition to allow multiple partners and infidelity." On the other hand:
He also apologized to those in the gay community who may have been offended by the church's stance, saying he's honored that so many gays are at home in the Catholic Church and that his goal from the start was "pro-marriage, never anti-gay."
The Archdiocese of New York is the single largest grouping of Catholics in the United States. Archbishop Dolan will likely be promoted to the priestly rank of Cardinal because of his "chair," or position.
Which is it, Your Excellency? Do you support the Church's teaching concerning the institution of marriage or are you ashamed of it? Our President is renowned throughout the world as "The Apologizer-in-Chief." You're doing the same thing, sir.
tampajeff: Not to mention all those good Catholic legislators who voted for this on Saturday and were welcomed to Mass on Sunday. I think the American Church is turning into the DNC with holidays; they are so wedded to social justice that they will pay lip service to the life issue and marriage but look the other way when liberal Catholic politicians ignore them.
