Obama Turns Down Cardinal Dolan's Request to Pray at Democratic Party National Convention

Cardinal Timothy  Dolan holds up a Fortnight for Freedom sign during last summer's two-week celebration of the nation's first freedom.

Barack Obama has turned down the top U.S. bishop’s request to say a prayer at the DNC in Charlotte in September.
Obama doesn’t like his politics.
 Meanwhile, Georgetown University Law School student and "women's reproductive rights" advocate Sandra Fluke, whom the liberal media brought front and center to as an apologist for the ObamaCare abortion mandate last spring, will take the podium to address the convention.

The New York Post reported, via Weasel Zippers:
President Obama turned down a chance to have Timothy Cardinal Dolan deliver a prayer at the Democratic National Convention after Dolan told Democrats he would be “grateful” to deliver a blessing in Charlotte.
Dolan — considered the top Catholic official in the nation, as head of the Archdiocese of New York and president of the Conference of Catholic Bishops — tipped off Democrats a few weeks ago that he had agreed to deliver the prime-time benediction at the Republican convention in Tampa next week, Dolan’s spokesman Joseph Zwilling told The Post.
 Could the administration's impolite, bordering on thuggish, disregard for the nation's Christian leaders be one of the reasons why Obama's support among Catholic voters has plummeted to 27 percent, less than half of the Catholic vote he garnered in 2008?

  1. Hopefully His Eminence will take the hint, stop playing the doormat and rescind Obama's invitation to the Al Smith dinner in October.
