Apparently Cardinal Dolan does have a backbone—at least when it comes to defending liberal causes
Cardinal Dolan on Donald’s Trump Call for Enforcement of the U.S. Immigration Laws:

It’s a virulent strain of American nativism” which “believed the immigrant to be dangerous and that America was better off without them. I take seriously the Bible’s teaching that we are to welcome the stranger, one of the most frequently mentioned moral imperatives in both the Old and New Testament… I wish I were in the college classroom again, so I could roll out my 'Trump card' to show the students that I was right. Nativism is alive, well – and apparently popular!”

Dolan was responding to Donald Trump’s stump speech in which the presidential hopeful noted that “the U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else's problems. And these aren't the best and the finest. When Mexico sends its people they're not sending their best, they're sending people that have a lot of problems…they're bringing drugs, they're bringing crime...”

Cardinal Dolan on Michael Sam’s ‘Coming Out’ as the First Openly Homosexual NFL football player:

“Good for him! I would have no sense of judgment on him. God bless ya. The same Bible that tells us, that teaches us about the virtues of chastity and the virtue of fidelity and marriage also tells us not to judge people. So, I would say, ‘Bravo.'”

How long, O Lord, how long.
