USCCB president: 'harder and harder' to accept Obama's word
Catholic World News - February 14, 2012
The president of the US bishops’ conference has said that it is “getting harder and harder” to believe that President Obama has a genuine commitment to religious liberty.
Archbishop Timothy Dolan on New York, who is in Rome this week to receive a cardinal’s red hat from Pope Benedict XVI, expressed dismay that President Obama had not fulfilled promised to honor religious freedom in his health-care plans.
“I want to take him at his word,” the cardinal-designate told an AP interviewer. “I do have to say it’s getting harder and harder.”

I hope the Archbishop has a few cynical advisors at his side.

Never trust a snake. No matter what they say, when you turn your back they bite your heel.
