On "Meet the Press" Cardinal Timothy Dolan is on the defensive in articulating the Roman Catholic Church's positions on contraception and gay marriage. Here is that coverage by NBC News. That positions him and the religion he represents for the vultures to have more fun.
This is unfortunate. Across the ocean at the Vatican man of the people Pope Francis is tooling around in his no-frills Ford rebuilding the RC brand. His every move is to restore image of his religion as the legacy of Christian inclusiveness, kindness, and compassion.
Given the lousy publicity Dolan's statements are getting, Francis should provide the Cardinal with a ticket to the Vatican to be tutored in PR. He could learn plenty in the passenger seat of the plain-vanilla Ford.
Enemies of RC have their most formidable obstacle in the Everyman persona of Francis.
