I hate agreeing with the late Fr. Andrew Greeley, but this is one more in a long line of examples of the progeny of Irish immigrants’ choosing the rat party over Catholicism. As a matter of fact, Greeley’s only error was in failing to recognize the same weakness in Italian immigrants. Not all Irish & Italians, of course, but a significant majority.
The Roman Catholic hierarchy in the northeast has had a big huge love affair with the DEMS. Not all, but many. They sucked up to the corrupt abortionist Kennedy’s. Look at the funeral they gave to that disgrace Teddy. And where is that political animal Cardinal Law these days. IMO, he should be in jail.
