He Has to Pull Out, Right?

That's the observation about Cardinal Dolan that I made today at Steve Skojec's Facebook post on this item, which I link from the New York Times:

Gay Groups to Join St. Patrick’s Parade in New York as a Ban Falls

So, the parade organizers went limp in the face of financial pressure from NBC. Typically disappointing surrender to the sodomeitgeist, right? Well, never fear, people-- Cardinal Dolan, who is next year's Grand Marshall, would never stand for this, right?

“I have no trouble with the decision at all,” Cardinal Dolan said at an evening news conference announcing his appointment as grand marshal. “I think the decision is a wise one.”-- This, friends, is His Eminence, as quoted in the New York Times.

Well, never fear. Pope Francis will certainly come down hard on Cardinal Dolan, right?

Rollin’ Dolan sits in the Church,
Rollin’ Dolan has a great perch.
He’s the king’s Cardinal, this is not a prank,
And the king of Rome is whom you should thank -
…let’s be frank!

From the article:

"Last summer, Pope Francis signaled a shift in how Catholic leaders talk about homosexuality when he was asked about his views on gay rights. He replied, “If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge?”

The 'Francis Effect'. Dolan is just following the leader on this one.

Unfortunately, pulling out is not going to work
