Catholic bishops see assault on religion


Catholic Bishops claim secular intellectuals are conspiring against religion. (Bill Greenblatt UPI)
BALTIMORE (UPI) -- The president of the Roman Catholic Conference of Bishops said there are elements in the United States that would like to banish religion altogether. New York Archbishop Timothy M. Dolan warned that "well-financed, well-oiled sectors" of society are attempting "to push religion back into the sacristy," The New York Times reported Tuesday. "We see in our culture a drive to neuter religion," Dolan told a news conference in Baltimore. He came prepared Monday to answer questions about the sexual abuse scandal at Penn State University that has reminded so many of the Catholic Church's own abuse scandal. Dolan said the accusations against a former assistant football coach were a reminder sexual abuse is a universal problem that affects many institutions. The bishop's conference in Baltimore established a committee on religious liberty and selected Bishop William E. Lori of Bridgeport, Conn., to head it. Lori told the conference Catholic agencies in the District of Columbia and states like Illinois and Massachusetts have been forced to stop offering adoption and foster care services because of requirements they allow same-sex couples to adopt.

I have grown increasingly upset in reecnt week to see Catholics lambasting Cardinal Dolan for inviting Obama to the dinner. There was no scandal here. There is no way that an intellectually honest voter could mistake this incident as a Democratic endorsement by the Church. And most importantly who is ANYONE to criticize the pastoral decision of a Cardinal? Unless a Catholic leader is acting in sin, we are to respect their leadership. Boycotting and protesting was uncalled for, in my opinion.

I would have appreciated a more stnolgry worded letter, not only for the good of the faithful, but also for Andrew Cuomo's immortal soul. The governor ought not to be receiving reassurance and praise, least of all from our Cardinal.
