The day after new Archbishop Timothy Dolan was installed in his new home, the Governor of NY, David Patterson announced a try to legalize “same-sex marriage” in NY.
“I think it’s a laugh in the face of the new archbishop,” Sen. Diaz said before the meeting. “The Jews just finished their holy week. The Catholics just received the new archbishop. The evangelical Christians just celebrated Good Friday and resurrection. He comes out to do this at this time? It’s a challenge the governor is sending to every religious person in New York and the time for us has come for us to accept the challenge.”
Luckily for New Yorkers, Archbishop Dolan has promised:
- …he would meet with advisers to discuss the most effective way to communicate the positions of the Catholic Church on “controversial moral issues.”
He said he would continue to “preach the truth” and “apply the immutable teachings of Jesus and his Church to contemporary situations,” including same-sex marriage.
While rejecting the “bully pulpit” label as having aggressive and bitter connotations, he stressed he will not “shy away from [controversial topics] and won’t sidestep them.” He promised to articulate the Church’s position and remain “active and present” on principles related to faith and morals.
