Cardinal Dolan Fails to Mention Christ at Inauguration Prayer
#8
I'm far from a Dolan fan but there's nothing particularly wrong with what he said.  It's disappointing that he doesn't mention Christ,but we can't forget that in American life today there is really no room for any public displays of anything beyond a vaguely Deist sentiment. Dolan is just being a good American and toning down his prayers to be vaguely Deist with a an Old Testament twist.  We can't forget that we are the most persecuted people on earth in terms of religion.  Dolan would probably be tarred and feathered mercilessly by the press and whoever is behind the scenes if he'd have dared mention Jesus. Besides, these days even the Pope has been known to leave Jesus out of certain speeches, or anything specifically Catholic. He's not at all doing something without precedent.
