    Archbishop Dolan is politician. He is arrogant and boisterous, even in Rome his behavior
    was look at me look at me.  He is opposing the
    Obama Health Care Plan from the pulpit and more. He is telling people  how to
    vote …Republican.  He has no right trying to
    influence parishioner personal political beliefs from the pulpit. In that case the Catholic Church
    should start paying taxes. The arrogance in believing they should tell the elected President of the United States what to do is laughable and ridiculous. He is President of All the people  of the United States not the Catholic Church. You have your Pope.  The Archbishops are
    now a arm of the Republican Party. I will never vote for a Republican as they are against
    all of Jesus Christ cared about and spoke about in the Bible..care of the poor, the sick, the elderly.
    The Archbishops should clean up their pedophile mess and yrs of abuse of children. So keep
    promoting the Republican talking points and I will never listen or vote for Republican candidate..ever.
