New York Times profiles Archbishop Dolan

Catholic World News - April 15, 2010

The New York Times has published a generally favorable profile of Archbishop Timothy Dolan, highlighting the gregarious nature of the city's new Catholic leader. The Times does acknowledge that the archbishop is likely to face controversies when Church teachings clash with popular opinions. But in an odd passage-- which seems to reflect a belief that the US bishops' conference defines Catholic teachings-- the Times profile says:

A theologically conservative leader, Archbishop Dolan has for the most part kept his public statements well within the bounds of the nuanced positions established by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.

    I don't agree that the Times believes the UCCB defines Catholic teachings. Rather, I think they appreciate and offer a secular salute to the "nuance" of UCCB statments, which the intellectuals use for advancing moral relativism....nuance over authority.
