Cardinal Dolan: Democrats have abandoned Catholics

March 23, 2018

» Continue to this story on Wall Street Journal

CWN Editor's Note: New York’s Cardinal Timothy Dolan has charged that the Democratic Party no longer allows room for loyal Catholics. “The ‘big tent’ of the Democratic Party now seems a pup tent,” the Cardinal wrote, in a column published by the Wall Street Journal. He pointed to Democratic leaders who have said that pro-lifers are not welcome in their party, and to the Democrats in New York who have blocked aid for students at parochial schools.

    It's good to finally hear this from Cardinal Dolan. I fear it has come so late though, that the marginal Catholics it would have instructed, have long since left.

    Where has the cardinal been for the last 20 years? I am still astounded by the Cardinal naivety when he thought that he could negotiate with Obama. When will he realize that he has been had by the LGBTQ groups?

    Better late than never. May his disclosure ignite his fellow bishops to do the same.

    30+ years too late.
