USCCB president: 'harder and harder' to accept Obama's word
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.
