I like your comparison of the two levels of Catholcism in China with what is seemingly happening in the U. S.
I don’t agree with your last statement though in obedience to my priest, bishop, Cardinal, Pope.

I don’t follow your train of thought on obedience. Dolan is not infallible, and this invitation is hardly a doctrinal statement but rather a show of his own naivety, indifference or arrogance (take your pick).

Timothy Dolan is the president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. The offices of that organization are located in Washington, D.C., and the USCCB is bascially a lobbying organization that functions as an arm of the U.S. government. If they had any credibility they'd be located somewhere in Iowa or Nebraska instead of in the shadow of Caesar's palace.
The guy is basically a political hack, so there's no reason to be any more deferential to him than you'd be to any other jack@ss in government these days.
