Cardinal Dolan’s ‘Theology’ appears to be ‘evolving’ to be more in line with that of Chicago’s old Cardinal Bernadine’s ‘Big Tent’ theology that took the approach: Abortion is icky but not a deal-breaker & Homosexual/Pedophile Priests are not really all that bad. Obviously the bishops believe it’s better to have a ‘catholic’ rather than a Catholic religion.
As far as I’m concerned Bernadine destroyed the parrish system of Catholic education in Chicago which during Stritch’s time (1950s) was the third largest educational system in the country. As well as the neighborhood community activities centered around the parrish church.
I can puke when I hear these guys with the pointy hats talk about “faith and morals. Then show up with these same groups or individuals which would not only challange but make illegal holding the very tenets the pointy hats claim to profess.
