Cardinal Timothy Dolan Admonishes Democrats on Abortion, Religious LibertyTopics: Faith, Political News and commentaries
In his closing benediction at the DNC's abortion-embracing/ anti-life/anti-God' convention (clearly, the DNC made no attempt to disguise the abortion extremism of the Democratic platform and President Barack Obama ... and its initial removal of 'God' from their platform ... and especially the kerfuffle in the vote to reinstate it ... spoke volumes about what the Democratic Party's true agenda against faith), Cardinal Timothy Dolan gave the kind of benediction that the Obama re-election campaign probably feared he would give when Dolan was initially rejected, and later approved, to give the closing prayer.
"Grant us the courage to defend life...waiting to be born, welcomed & protected," he said, excoriating Democrats to support religious liberty as well in light of the controversial Obama HHS mandate that Catholics and pro-life advocates oppose. Dolan prays for "life, without which no other rights are secured."Read the full text of Cardinal Dolan's prayer here.
"God grants us the right to life so we can choose liberty and happiness," he said, adding that unborn children should "be welcomed and protected." He referred to the right to life, without which no other right has meaning, saying, "We praise You for the gift of life, grant us the courage to defend it."
"Renew in all our people a profound respect for religious liberty, the first, most cherished freedom," he said.
The prayer went over well with people on Twitter.
"Cardinal Dolan's prayer included religious liberty, & respect for human life, including unborn. Hope those @ the DNC were listening," said Matt Hanafin.
"Cardinal Dolan is praising God for the gift of life at the convention of a party who spews hate about LIFE," added TamiNantz.
