Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on the news that New York Archbishop Timothy Dolan was elected today to lead the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops over the next three years:
What a splendid choice! Archbishop Dolan possesses all the right skills to lead the bishops’ conference: he is brilliant, courageous and diplomatic. He’ll get the job done and will not disappoint practicing Catholics who are loyal to the Magisterium. He’s already won the support of New Yorkers—now Catholics across the nation will come to love him as well.
