EWTN Catholic Q&A
Cardinal Dolan and the Holy Father
Question from Anon on 11-24-2012:

If Cardinal Dolan is as bad as so many Catholics on this site say he is, then why does the Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI, trust him so much? Why did he admit him into the College of Cardinals? Is the Holy Father misguided and blinded?

Answer by Judie Brown on 11-28-2012:

Dear Anon

I am sure you are familiar with the manner in which politics shapes decisions that come from the government of the United States. Right?

Well, Vatican politics is the same. It's not about what you know but who you know.
