Of course not. That's my point. He's only allowed to preach messages that don't make sense. Even to most Christians.
So don't listen to what he says.

You obviously ascribe a great deal of gravitas to Dolan to fret so much about what he says at Mass or elsewhere.

The 'elsewhere' part is where Dolan gets into trouble
.
He has no authority 'elsewhere'; especially in governmental matters. Dolan is not an elected official nor employee of the government
.
So he earns the criticism that showers down around him

The protesters here didn't think that the issue was "elsewhere". They thought Mass was a good place to call him out.

I missed where Dolan claimed to possess the authority of a government official or employee. Can you cite that?

It is his job to bring people to Christ.
It's also his job to allow those folks to celebrate Mass without having to deal with people who go to Mass for the express purpose of making a statement of protest against Church teaching.
So it's only his job to bring SOME people back to Christ, got it. Very logical. And so EASY for him to NOT take on those who need more convincing, but only the easily led ones. Got it. Talk about LAZY.

that's like convincing Sarah Palin that killing animals from helicopters is a GOOD thing.

OBVIOUSLY his mass is NOT to be taken seriously, since it is so easily disturbed and he so easily distracted by them just entering. Some priest.

False premise you're pushing here. Got it.

He's not obligated to ensure that people are availed of the opportunity to disrupt Mass.

The group was there to make a political statement.

Mass isn't the place for that.

I mean, why the crying? They wanted attention and they got it.

Gravitas? If, by that, you mean I feel sorry for someone delusional enough to believe all that crap and try to peddle it in pretty lacy dresses and petticoats and fancy shoes while trying to convince everyone that being gay is bad, then, yeah. I do.

He sure commands a lot of your attention. Do you pay similar heed to others who you deem delusional?

You do try to create conflict that doesn't exist, don't you?

Here's a hint, dear. When you have to goad someone into defending himself against things he never posted, you're arguing all by yourself.

The handful of posts that you've just read are the sum total of everything I've ever written about Mrs. Dolan (married to Jesus, and all). I hardly think a handful of posts constitutes being labeled as "command(ing) a lot of (my) attention". Don't you?

Now run along to alter-boy "practice". I'm sure they're missing you behind those heavy velvet curtains.

People on this board (you included)are fulminating about Dolan, as if they expect him to affirm homosexual marriage.

Anyone with half a brain wouldn't expect that, yet we sill get all the faux outrage that he did what he did. The childish embellishments you append to your posts only reinforce negative stereotypes.

I hope the good Cardinal takes off his rosary beads when he is on the Vespa. They might get tangled in the spokes and strangle him like Isadora Duncan got strangled when her scarf got tangled in that death Bugatti's spokes.

Do priest wear those pretty frilly robes and lacy petticoats on their day off, or is mandatory 24/7?
