Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

Dolan's invitation to offer blessing at Democratic Convention is ignored...for now


The Republican convention kicks off on Monday August 27, but Dolan is scheduled to preside over the closing prayer on the 30th, just after Mitt Romney, a practicing Mormon, is officially nominated as the Republican presidential candidate.

As the Archbishop of New York and the president of the Conference of Catholic Bishops, Dolan is considered the highest ranking Catholic in the U.S.

He reportedly told president Obama's campaign about Romney's invitation. But he also said he would be willing and quote 'grateful' to offer a blessing at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina. Obama's campaign though, has not replied.

Most recently Dolan became well known in the political arena, for leading a legal fight against Obama's controversial birth control mandate.
