Archbishop Dolan of NY: ND Made a Big Mistake

If you happen to be getting tired of my bringing this issue up, I'm sorry you feel that way. It's not just a personal thing (though it is to a large degree). This is a measuring stick to see how the Church will react when faced with wildly popular emissaries for the culture of death.

Anyways, Archbishop Dolan has entered the lists here, per CatholicOnline:

"They made a big mistake ... in an issue that is very close to the heart of Catholic world view, namely, the protection of innocent life in the womb, [Obama] has unfortunately taken a position very much at odds with the Church," Archbishop Timothy Dolan told host Charlie Sykes on the "Sunday Insight" program of Milwaukee station TMJ4.

And the chorus grows, as Jenkins's fingers press ever more tightly into his ears.

Have you seen Bishop Doran's (of Rockford) comments?

"I would ask that you rescind this unfortunate decision and so avoid dishonoring the practicing Catholics of the United States, including those of this Diocese. Failing that, please have the decency to change the name of the University to something like, 'The Fighting Irish College' or 'Northwestern Indiana Humanist University.'"
