Archbishop Timothy Dolan holds a bible aloft during his first service during the Mass of Installation at St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York, April 15, 2009. Dolan, 59, succeeds Cardinal Edward Egan to be the 10th Archbishop of the Archdiocese of New York
Cardinal Timothy Dolan, with
his knowledge deflector.
You know, celibate, white, old men probably should just stay away from any discussion of lady parts and their health. But will Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Archbishop of New York do that? Of course not!
“I would be inspired by the Hobby Lobby [owners],” Dolan said. “I think they’re just true Americans. They’re saying, look, the genius of America is that religious convictions affect the way we act… They sure have my admiration.”

“But doesn’t that set a dangerous precedent?” O’Donnell wondered. “If a private company can use religion to deny benefits to its employees?”

Dolan acknowledged that it could be dangerous in extreme circumstances, but he doubted that the Hobby Lobby argument was a detriment to the common good.

“Is the ability to buy contraceptives, that are now widely available—my Lord, all you have to do is walk into a 7-11 or any shop on any street in America and have access to them—is that right to access those and have them paid for, is that such a towering good that it would suffocate the rights of conscience?”

All those slutty sluts looking for sex can just pick up some rubbers while they're buying their cigarettes and beer! What's the problem? Because, of course, the only reason women use prescription contraception is so they can have all that sex. Dolan probably also thinks that we don't have a problem with too many uninsured people because we have emergency rooms.

By the way, yes, he's saying all that to Nora O'Donnell, a person with lady parts.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
