    How fitting that you say the Cardinal is “booked” at both conventions.
    I’d like to humbly remind the good Cardinal Dolan,
    as he parades and pontificates under the spotlights
    of the political conventions:
    there is room for only ONE super-star in your religion.
    As the Cardinal addresses and blesses the Republicans and their billionaire buddies,
    as the Cardinal smiles upon those who would destroy Social Security & voucher Medicare to death,
    as the Cardinal joins with those who readily admit they “don’t care about the very poor”……
    it would be good, it would be very good …for the dear Cardinal
    to remember -and take to heart- the words of his boss,
    who once said “Whatsoever you do for the least of these – you do for me”.
    Unless perhaps, …just perhaps,
    the Cardinal is working for someone else these days?
    As our Founding Fathers so wisely realized:
    Politics, secular power, and Religion do not mix.
    They bring out the worst in each other.
    And ultimately…..they would destroy each other.
