Cardinal Dolan of New York recently criticized Democrats in an op-ed for the party’s treatment of Catholics. The left is hostile towards Christianity in general, so Dolan has a very valid point. The Democrats’ embrace of abortion flies in the face of Catholic values and that’s just one example.

Cardinal Dolan Slams Democratic Party’s Treatment of Catholics: It ‘Weakens the Democracy Millions of Americans Cherish’
Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the archbishop of New York, has voiced his disappointment in the Democratic Party for slamming the door on Catholics’ pro-life views and blocking education tax credit legislation that would give middle-class and low-income families choice between Catholic and public schools.
Dolan wrote an op-ed published in the Wall Street Journal Thursday, titled, “The Democrats Abandon Catholics,” where he talks about two recent events that caused him to reflect on two people with “tremendous effect on the Archdiocese” and who he said are worth remembering in the current political moment.
The first event was last Saturday’s feast of St. Patrick, the patron saint of his cathedral and archdiocese. He said St. Patrick reminded him of Archbishop John Hughes, an immigrant who defended the dignity of Irish immigrants during the 19th century and “initiated Catholic schools to provide children with a good education sensitive to their religion and to prepare them as responsible, patriotic citizens.”
With many of the schools still open today, Dolan slammed Democrats in the New York Assembly for repeatedly blocking education tax credit legislation, which he argued would allow middle and low-income families to have the choice of Catholic or other nonpublic schools for their children.
Climate change is the new religion of the left. They abandoned the Catholic church long ago.
