View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

Archbishop Dolan: Drawn to the Dark Side

Archbishop Timothy Dolan - by all accounts a good bishop with a solid orthodox and pro-life record - has not yet even been officially installed as the Archbishop of New York, and already he is being adversely affected by that moral cesspool known as Gotham.

In a news account today, Archbishop Dolan reported that as a St. Louis native he had rooted for the Cardinals over the Yankees in 1964.

But as Archbishop of New York, he said, "I will now become a Yankees fan."

?!#@!^&#!!

As a Boston-born lad, my gorge rose almost to the tip of my Red Sox cap as I read those words.

The Yankees?

I could accept the Mets, but not the evil empire.

We need to start a petition drive to help save him from this fate.

We should also steer him toward the Buffalo Bills - the only true New York-based NFL team - and away from the New Jersey Giants and New Jersey Jets.

We have a moral obligation to act now - before Opening Day!

Too funny! As a Bills season ticket holder, I was thinking the same thing!

Once a Cardinal fan, always a Cardinal. The color of the uniform as well as the name bodes well for Tim Dolan
