Dems Reject Cardinalís Offer
Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 25 Aug 2012 | 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 Dolan’s agreement to deliver a prayer at the Republican National Convention next week. Dolan’s spokesman, Joseph Zwilling, explained that the Cardinal’s offer was “an assurance that his role at the Republican convention is not intended to be partisan.”

Fetcher wasn’t buying Zwilling’s explanation. “An even-handed willingness to pray for this country’s enemies sends voters the wrong message,” Fetcher argued. “We cannot allow Dolan’s fundamentally seditious actions to undermine the essential truth of the Democratic Party’s crusade to save America.”

As an example of the Cardinal’s “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 doesn’t win,” Fetcher insisted. “Bad weather in Tampa would be helpful in that regard. As we can see, though, Dolan’s 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.
