Dowd's attack on Archbishop Dolan: all sarcasm, no substance
June 20, 2011
New York Times columnist used a great deal of sarcasm, but very little logic, in an attack on Archbishop Timothy Dolan, observes canon lawyer Edward Peters. In a post that thoroughly dismantles Dowd’s argument, Peters comes to the nub of the problem:
That’s not right. That doesn't even rise to level of being wrong. Instead, that’s what comes from someone who is not even pretending to be interested in what the other side actually holds.
