I was glad to read that Cardinal Dolan is going to press the legislature to do something for NYS farm workers (discrimination against them is enshrined in NYS law).
But other than the Daily News article, I cannot find any other reference to his efforts on the Web. I even checked the Archdiocese’s website. Nada. But the Cardinal’s objections to the healthcare law are featured on his home page.
Did the Daily News make this up? Is the Cardinal suddenly shy about his good works? Inquiring minds want to know.
Timothy Cardinal Dolan and his fellow bishops labor for justice for farm workers – NY Daily News.
Farm workers? Not really. The cardinal was in Albany lobbying for three things: further restrictions on abortion, further restrictions on contraception, and no extension of the statute of limitations on sexual abusers.
The first two are understandable. The third is disgusting.
