Cardinal Wuerl on Fox News...

Recently, Cardinal Wuerl appeared on Fox News. (See link below.)

I found it interesting to watch, esp. when it came to the question of Don't Ask, Don't Tell (DADT). Cardinal Wuerl gave an answer that any politician would be proud about -- he beat around the bush for a while and then said, well, it is a political question and not one for the Catholic Church.

Sorry Cardinal Wuerl, but that is the answer I would expect from someone who wants us to leave our religious values at the door and not from the leader of the Catholic Church in Washington DC. Yes, it is a political decision, but it has implications on those priests who serve in the military and on those who are Catholics.

Cardinal Wuerl seems more interested in making certain that no one gets their feelings hurt, as he continues to promote his New Evangelization.

I have said it before, and I will say it again, you have to tell people the truth Cardinal Wuerl -- there are things that people may not want to hear but you must tell them that it is wrong.

How much longer must we continue to suffer from this lack of leadership?

The question nobody wants to ask is why certain members of the hierarchy are so willing to provide cover for the homosexuals.

Any guesses?

I guess I could tell you why, but that would not be a good thing. People do want to ask the question, it's just that nobody really wants a straight answer. Come to think of it, you could not get a straight answer.
