If there were a gullibility record, it was recently broken by the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP).
This Church-hating band of professional victims’ advocates—which the Catholic League played a key role in effectively destroying (it limbers on but few pay it any heed)—proved how easy it is to seduce when it bought, hook, line and sinker, a parody about Cardinal Timothy Dolan that appeared in a dissident publication.
The columnist was unhappy that Cardinal Dolan agreed to a conference call with the president. What he said about Dolan was meant in jest.
“The archbishop of New York, Cardinal Timothy Dolan, announced he was resigning as the spiritual leader of the ‘capital of the world’ in order to dedicate all his energies to his new position as co-chairman of the Committee to Re-elect the President. The resignation has yet to be accepted by Pope Francis, but there is little doubt the Supreme Pontiff will grant Dolan’s request to be relieved of his spiritual duties.”
The dunces at SNAP thought this was true. Here is what they said.
“New York’s top Catholic official is reportedly resigning from his position to help lead the re-election committee for President Donald Trump. We believe that New York Catholics will be better served by just about any other prelate and are glad that this longtime enemy of transparency will no longer lead the Archdiocese of New York.”
Those with an IQ in double figures weren’t fooled. SNAP was.
