  1. You know, he did hit the prolife themes, but he hit the social justice themes, too. Close to the end I think you could make the argument that he needled a bit, but basically I think this was a very good prayer, in tune with the audience without compromising in the areas where compromise can’t be accepted. And for all the chatter about F-bombs on Twitter via the Catholic blogosphere, it looked to me like the vast majority of the assembled were very respectful. I think people are blowing things out of proportion.

    • I agree.

      Cardinal Dolan’s role before God is to shepherd his people and speak prophetically to all people. He shouldn’t be polling his audience to pander to their persuasions, especially when praying on their behalf.
