Top U.S. Catholic cardinal will bless RNC -- but not endorse
Since the word went out into the land that the top U.S. Catholic Cardinal will give the closing prayer for the RNC meeting in Tampa, Catholic experts have plenty to say.
Chiefly, liberals blast it as an endorsement in shepherd's clothing while conservatives cheer.
David Gibson at Religion News Service checked in with America magazine, the Jesuit weekly, which editorialized,
Cardinal Dolan's appearance in Tampa will damage the church's ability to be a moral and legitimate voice for voiceless, as those who view the Catholic Church as being a shill for the GOP have just a bit more evidence to prove their case....
The Democrats at least got that right! Being blessed by the Romish Church is almost like being cursed by God!
"Funny how the world's more liberal countries tend to be the ones with the least corruption!" The Record of Republican Corruption and the countries that were least Catholic dominated!
One has to remember the main guru of the Republican party (Yes, I have referred to articles on the "Atlas Shrugs" site, and I may again in the future, I usually try to recommend an article and doesn't mean I necessarily recommend the entire site--except for Indian Hills Community Church )Ayn Rand: Why is she so popular?.
1 Corinthians 6 9 Or do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, 10 nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God.---NASB
