Cardinal Dolan's Slip Shows

Cardinal Dolan said

DOLAN: We got burned last year when we were told the redefinition of marriage didn’t have much of a chance — and of course it did. Our Senate leaders, we highly appreciated them being with us all along.

I comment

I think the acceptance of what Dolan considers blame is not a statement that they could have made a difference, but just the Catholic guilt thing. I find the phrase "Our Senate leaders" more striking. I can only interpret that as referring to the NY Senate Republican leadership (who else?) and so, it seems to me, that Dolan has referred to the Republican party as "our" party. Totally aside from the fact that most Catholics in his diocese are Democrats, the Catholic church isn't supposed to be partisan.
