CWN Editor's Note: “I am pro-life and I believe in a woman’s right to choose,” said Msgr. Paul Garrity. “I will vote for Joe Biden for President because I believe that Joe Biden is pro-life like me.” In 2015, Msgr. Garrity said that the Church’s teaching on the permanence of marriage is “ridiculous,” “untenable,” and “disrespectful.” [Editor’s note: Cardinal Sean O’Malley later issued a statement.]

He is also good at playing his opponents against themselves
