Posted on 08/25/2012 1:09:04 PM PDT by John Semmens
The Obama campaign rejected an offer from Cardinal Timothy Dolan to deliver a prayer at the Democratic National Convention in September. As head of the Archdiocese of New York and president of the Conference of Catholic Bishops, Dolan is considered the top Catholic official in the U.S.
The offer was refused because this nation is in a desperate struggle between good and evil, said Obama campaign spokesman Adam Fetcher. It is imperative that those who care about the outcome take a credible stand. We can no longer tolerate the type of amoral straddle Dolan is trying to pull off.
The straddle appears to be Dolans agreement to deliver a prayer at the Republican National Convention next week. Dolans spokesman, Joseph Zwilling, explained that the Cardinals offer was an assurance that his role at the Republican convention is not intended to be partisan.
Fetcher wasnt buying Zwillings explanation. An even-handed willingness to pray for this countrys enemies sends voters the wrong message, Fetcher argued. We cannot allow Dolans fundamentally seditious actions to undermine the essential truth of the Democratic Partys crusade to save America.
As an example of the Cardinals seditious actions, Fetcher cited his prayer that Hurricane Isaac not disrupt the Republican convention. We need to do everything we can to ensure that evil doesnt win, Fetcher insisted. Bad weather in Tampa would be helpful in that regard. As we can see, though, Dolans not on the same page.

Your satire is more accurate that any news the MSM presents.
The Democrat nominee doesn’t want anybody praying to anybody but him.
This is satire?
