    Cardinal Dolan: Secularists Want to Make Faith So Private It Vanishes

    Timothy Cardinal Dolan was interviewed on Fox & Friends [Wednesday] morning.  He discussed the extreme efforts that the Catholic schools are undertaking to stay open in the face of resistance and hostility from New York officials.

    He also asked about the document from the Secular Democrats of America that I warned you about in yesterday’s report.  Dolan said he was “very concerned” about threats to religious liberty.

    He warned that a lot of Biden’s advisers are pushing an “aggressive secular worldview.”  He said they want “religion pushed to the side,” and they believe that faith should be “very private.”

    Dolan said that while “religion is personal” it must not be private, adding that we have a right to bring our faith and deepest convictions “to the public square” for the common good.

    Churches, religious charities and other non-profit ministries do tremendous work that should be encouraged.  But they can’t do it if the government is persecuting faith-based ministries, like the Little Sisters of the Poor, for adhering to their deepest convictions.
