Denying the axiom of La Rochefoucauld that hypocrisy is the tribute that vice pays to virtue would seem to be an uphill battle for any politician, including a church politician such as the Cardinal Archbishop of New York, Timothy Dolan. Yet Dolan jumped right into “of course I can’t handle the truth” territory in an interview on Meet the Press this weekend when he said that the Catholic Church has been “outmarketed” on the gay marriage issue, and “caricatured” as anti-gay.
Oh please, who do you think you’re foolin’?
