This is a cause that for us is the premier cause of social justice in America today.
The correct interpretation of "social justice" and not what those kooky nuns have been moralizing about for 30 odd years.
Not quite sure I liked the statement about waiting on what the USCCB decides... is some wacky no named "ad hoc" subcommittee going to decide how to handle something that is best left to each individual bishop? Part of the problem with the USCCB is that it stifles bishops like Burke (kind of hogties them) although on the other hand that's true for bishops like Mahony and Weakland too.
Bishop O'Malley out of Boston is starting to come alive on this issue as well. Praise God!

The motions of O'Malley and Dolan are NOT co-incidental--and you might add the new Bishop of Madistan, WI., to your list.
Sometimes it is not necessary to use a sledgehammer to kill the fly.
Remember that Dolan is surrounded by enemies--he reportedly has stated that 'it's worse here than anyone imagined' to a close friend in the Church...
