Citizens Report American Irish Culture

We Need an Irish Pope!


This morning’s announcement that Pope Benedict XVI will resign the papacy by the end of February has thrown the Irish American Catholic community into a whirlwind of conjecture regarding the identity of our next Pope.

On the left, there are those calling for a young, “progressive” Pope; basically code for an abortion rights advocate who will abolish celibacy for priests and make sodomy sinless.

We’d like to see a Pope who will hold the line against the current attacks on Catholicism and will lead the church out of the current maelstrom and into a new age of pride in our faith.

Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York would make a wonderful Pope. He’s conservative without being doctrinaire and he has a terrific Irish sense of humor. Dolan has also exhibited his abilities as a statesman dealing with President Obama, who would seem to be on a collision course with the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church.

As the culture wars continue to escalate, it would seem prudent to have a warrior leading us into the future of our church. We’re praying for Dolan to be the first Irish American Catholic Pope in history!
