Bill Donohue: In the last edition of Catalyst, I said that Father Robert Imbelli had not criticized an anti-Catholic ad placed by an atheist group in the New York Times, and that he made light of a cartoon mocking Cardinal Dolan. He contacted me about this and we had an honest exchange. He insists that his remark about the cartoon was meant in jest. I believe he is sincere. He also said, “I have absolutely no sympathy with the group in question.” Father Imbelli’s clarification is much appreciated, and it certainly puts to rest any concerns I may have had.
