"awaiting moderation" on Archbishop Dolan's blog...

Being, as it is, in such opposition to yet another of the Archbishop's platitudes (this one about opposition to the proposed mosque near Ground Zero), we doubt it will make the cut, so we post it here:

Your comment is awaiting moderation.

“What is not acceptable is to prejudge any group, or to let fear and bias trump the towering American (and for us Catholics, the religious) virtues of hospitality, welcome, and religious freedom,” the Archbishop wrote.

It is well and good for us to be admonished against forsaking virtue, but we can’t be forbidden from feeling something very amiss in the mere pawning of that which was built by the blood, sweat and tears of the Church to those who look forward to her demise. We needn’t be chastised as disobedient children for a visceral recoiling from extending those virtues to those who have declared and demonstrated their opposition to them.

Let the Archbishop be reminded that it isn’t Catholics who have gone about knocking down things that tower in America.
