Dolan’s Great Ecclesiastical Balancing Act.

Sure.  You might go to hell.  But at least Cardinal Dolan didn’t judge you.

I expect you’ll get a chance to thank him.  In person.

H/T to Creative Minority Report


Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York praised University of Missouri football star Michael Sam for coming out as gay, saying he would not judge the athlete for his sexual orientation.

“Good for him,” Dolan said in an interview with NBC’s “Meet the Press” airing Sunday.

“I would have no sense of judgment on him,” Dolan continued. “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.'”

Yeah.  I get bogged down in that whole Chastity/Fidelity/Marriage/Not Judging balancing act myself.

But, heck, Confession just got a little easier:  Instead of Penance, I can now get a high five.

God have mercy.

    Apparently, I’m not the only one with a balancing issue. But if failure to balance is a sin, would Cardinal Dolan tell me “Bravo!”?

    BRAVO CARDINAL! You have hit the nail squarely on the head and demonstrated before the world what Treason against the King looks like.
