His comments were very clear. Maybe what you mean is that we ought to use the press to hound Egan mercilessly and either force him to recant or get him impeached, or defrocked, or whatever it is.
Certainly, someone should rid the president of this meddlesome priest. This is no damn time for people to betray their country by exercising their freedom of religion or free speech. Not even supposedly "godly" men like Cardinal Egan. He needs to be watched.
All these comments coming from clergy asking Americans to "examine their own behavior" comes across, at best, as hideously arrogant.
Not everything that could be said SHOULD be said. And men of the cloth rarely restrain themselves when in role.
