Msgr Charles Pope of the Archdiocese of Washington, in the wake of Cardinal Dolan's disgusting kiss-up to gay activists, posted the article below on his blog. I think he's spot-on correct.
However, Msgr Pope's blog is hosted on a server owned by the Archdiocese of Washington. Lo and behold, the original link no longer works; try it! http://blog.adw.org/2014/09/time-to-end-the-st-patricks-parade-and-the-al-smith-dinners/
Whoopsie! Whaddya think of that? Wanna bet that the "good ole boy" network of progressive bishops has mobilized to protect one of their own? Cardinals Wuerl and McCarrick are of like mind as is Cardinal Dolan. Such are the hazards of relying on other entities for your message medium. So Msgr Pope's post was pulled. I pray that's the only repercussion that he suffers.
Now the article..
