"The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops elected Archbishop Timothy M. Dolan of New York to be its president on Tuesday in a surprise move that reaffirmed the conservative direction of the Roman Catholic Church in America. For the first time, the bishops overlooked tradition and passed over a vice president who was running for the presidency, Bishop Gerald Kicanas of Tucson. Bishop Kicanas represents the more liberal “social justice” tradition of the American church and is known for advocating dialogue between Catholic liberals and traditionalists. Archbishop Dolan is considered a moderate conservative."

Who would have guessed the liberal candidate would have been from Arizona and the conservative candidate would have been from NY? Looks like the NYT media was also in a lib bubble when this "surpise move" happened.

Do your research before you post! The conservative candidate has been Archbishop of New York for about a year. Before that he served as Archbishop of Milwaukee and he was born and raised in Missouri. That hardly qualifies him as "from NY", as you put it.

LOL

The catholic church is just as corrupt as any politician, with their own agenda, whatever that may be.

I recognized the hypocrisy in the church back in grade school (catholic grade school).

What they do means nothing.

The Catholic Church has been around 2000 years. Why wouldn't they protect their traditions and go for a conservative? They are going to outlive every liberal nitwit in this country.

Wow, what a surprise! I almost fell out of my chair hearing that the Catholic church voted for a conservative. That's about as strange as the Klan voting for a racist.

The Catholic Church needs to kick out the apostate social justice priests and bishops from its ranks. You can't be a liberal and a Christian/Catholic at the same time.

Oh, how true!

Jesus wouldn't want people today to care about their fellow man.
He wouldn't want people today to act as caretakers for the beautiful planet He provided us with.

Only liberals care about these types of things.

Guess you just kicked Jesus Christ out of christianity; that'll show Him!

Jesus never said to have government take care of everyone that's what people like Jesse Jackson and Jeremiah Wright say. Jesus said to work for your own but to help others YOURSELF when you can. Not via the government. Forced charity is not charity, it's slavery. That's where you and your liberals are wrong. You cannot compel someone, with threat of force, to do good. In other words, you can't be good out of the goodness of you rheart, if you have the IRS threatening you with jail and wage garnishments if you don't pay your taxes to support social programs
