You know, celibate, white, old men probably should just stay away from any discussion of lady parts and their health. But will Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Archbishop of New York do that? Of course not!
“I would be inspired by the Hobby Lobby [owners],” Dolan said. “I think they’re just true Americans. They’re saying, look, the genius of America is that religious convictions affect the way we act… They sure have my admiration.”
“But doesn’t that set a dangerous precedent?” O’Donnell wondered. “If a private company can use religion to deny benefits to its employees?”
Dolan acknowledged that it could be dangerous in extreme circumstances, but he doubted that the Hobby Lobby argument was a detriment to the common good.
“Is the ability to buy contraceptives, that are now widely available—my Lord, all you have to do is walk into a 7-11 or any shop on any street in America and have access to them—is that right to access those and have them paid for, is that such a towering good that it would suffocate the rights of conscience?”

Once again, a man in a position of authority opens his yap about something he has exactly ZERO experience about and no empathy with the people the subject does impact. Is anyone genuinely surprised here?
I'm not. More depressed than anything else.
