Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan is charging President Barack Obama with undermining the “very cornerstone of society” by supporting “gay marriage.”

Cardinal Dolan, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, described the president’s endorsement as “deeply saddening.”

The bishops “cannot be silent in the face of words or actions that would undermine the institution of marriage, the very cornerstone of our society,” he said in a May 9 statement. “The people of this country, especially our children, deserve better.”

Cardinal Dolan said that the announcement was “not surprising” based on the Obama administration’s previous actions, which “erode or ignore the unique meaning of marriage.”
He called for prayer and efforts to “promote and protect marriage” in order to “serve the true good of all persons.”

How credible from a representative of an organization that hides homosexual pedofiles.

So where are Tim Dolan's admissions that sexual abuse of young people (usually young males) by priests and the protection of said priests by church hierarchy not only greatly undermines the Catholic Church but undermines society - as many of the victims of molestation by priests can never trust authority of any kind again?

Is a voluntary celibate really qualified to pontificate on marriage?

Nope.

Which is the laughable irony in it all.

I idea of celibate clergy getting diarrhea of the mouth regarding anyone's sexual proclivities is a joke. Catholics especially.

Nice comparison, 0bama's opinions are about as worthy of notice as Mickey's.
