Cardinal Wuerl has let us down again...

According to the National Catholic Reporter (that bastion of orthodoxy -- snark, snark), Michael Winters wrote:

Perhaps the most interesting thing about yesterday’s Red Mass and brunch was the thing that was not said. Two words went unmentioned: religious liberty. There was not a whiff of culture warrior talk in the day’s proceedings, no condemnation of the Supreme Court’s decisions in the same sex marriage cases, no please for the HHS mandate to be ruled unconstitutional. Instead, modeling Pope Francis, both +Farrell and +Wuerl spoke about the Gospel and left the politics outside. It was so refreshing.

So, here was another opportunity for the Cardinal to make the point about the HHS mandate, how it is important to remember religious freedom, and he once again did nothing.  

Once again, he has let us down.

Perhaps a reminder of the words of St. Paul in Sacred Scripture is appropriate here?

"For if I preach the gospel, it is no glory to me: for a necessity lieth upon me: for wo is unto me, if I preach not the gospel." (1 Cor. 9:16)
