A Tale Of Two Dolans

This past Wednesday Cardinal Dolan opened his mouth and inserted both feet via a hit piece that he penned in the New York Daily News that targeted Donald Trump.  Trump made it clear that he doesn't favor the de facto "open borders" policy of the Obama cartel (you know, Dolan's accomplice in guffaws at the Al Smith Dinner just before the election).  By the way - as you read the piece please also read the comments; most of the commenters see through Dolan's chicanery.

Like most progressives, Dolan conveniently obscures the fact that most common-sense people simply oppose the influx of ILLEGAL  immigrants (notice the emphasis?), not all immigration.  He then calls Trump a "nativist" and invokes the specters of the Know-Nothings and the Ku Klux Klan.  For now, we won't discuss the roots that these two entities have in the Democratic party.

This is not the first time that Dolan has shed his overly-jolly image.  He can be quite vicious when he believes it will suit his progressive proclivities.  Lest anyone forget how he threw Father Justin Wylie under the bus, please refresh your memories here.  Let us also recall how Cardinal Dolan had Michael Voris ejected from his presence at the same parade where he marched with gays in New York.  Cardinal Cheeshead can play the cut-throat well.

But sometimes the "cheesehead" persona will get the job done, it seems Dolan would think.  In addition to the Al Smith Dinner, there is the "Meet The Press" interview that he did in March 2014 when Michael Sam came out as gay.  What did a Prince of the Church have to say about the celebration of mortal sin, the kind that can damn a soul to hell?  "Good for him.  I would have no sense of judgment on him. God bless ya. I don’t think, look, the same Bible that tells us, that teaches us, well about the virtues of chastity and the virtue of fidelity and marriage also tells us not to judge people. So I would say, ‘Bravo.’"

So he has no "sense of judgment" regarding someone wallowing in intrinsic moral depravity and endangering his immortal soul.  However, when someone voices an opinion that differs from him regarding some pet progressive cause - about which good people can disagree - well, he breaks out the long knives with all alacrity, decisiveness and I daresay vindictiveness.  In a Mic'd Up last year, both Michael Voris and Judie Brown took the cardinal to task for this very two-faced defense of warped priorities on his part.

I called this post "tale of two Dolans".  In reality, they are the same; only the facade changes to further the progressive agenda.


  1. The jovial one is confusing and perhaps mistaken. I tend to ignore craziness.

  2. Cardinal Dolan is a wolf in sheeps clothing. Many of us aren't fooled. However, many are.

  3. Dolan is a climber. As a life-long and devoted Catholic, I can't sense a single spiritual bone in this man's make-up. He is a liberal progressive and does what he needs to do to align himself with those forces, both in the Church and in the secular culture. I have watching and waiting for him to say something, a little something, about the gay marriage thing, the butchering of babies for their tiny body parts, and the wreckovation of parishes like Our Savior. Nada. People were weeping as their churches were closed this past weekend. Did he show up to comfort any of them. Nope. Instead he congratulated himself in Catholic New York for what a great job he is doing. The man is "stupid" in the original sense of the word. Given the lurid culture we live in today, the Church needs leaders with courage to defend the faith. Well, that won't be Dolan. Nor Cupich in Chicago. He is too busy checking out LED lighting in various church buildings. When people complained about a lack of spiritual leadership on his part, he called them "chirping crickets." Dolan has the same dismissive attitude. He is the original jerk. Ha, ha, ha!

  4. You have to realize that unfettered immigration is a cash cow for USCCB. They receive upwards of $75mil, that's right 75mil, from US govt for MRS(Migration & Refugee Services). So keep'em comin'. There is an obvious conflict of interest here. This represents more than half of USCCB operating budget! They're not getting it from the pews anymore.
    Dolan is another big disappointment in a long line of disappointment in the politics and in the church. Trump is the only person out there I have any hope in. And Dolan is bashing him....Has anyone heard ANY Catholic clerics speak out about Planned Parenthood?
    While I'm at it- has anyone seen or heard of any collections, clothing drives, help for the Christians being slaughtered, raped, burned alive, beheaded, tortured and killed in the Mid East? Holy Innocents has special Masses and prayers & processions. Mostly...crickets.
    Yes I remember Fr. Wylie. a devoted and excellent priest. People would wait for him outside the church after Mass for blessings, for their children, married couples, sick,etc. He is now in a South African backwater. Banished.
