Archbishop Dolan speaks out on abortion, marriage –

A fantastic interview with the New York Post – complete with video – is an intelligent discussion of the major issues facing Catholics in society today.

For example, while calling abortion “intrinsically evil,” Dolan cited the archdiocese’s Catholic Charities arm for advancing a “pro-life” message by operating a nursery for babies born to inmates at the Bedford Hills women’s prison in Westchester County, which he visited this week.

“That’s pro-life at its best, and that’s where we gain credibility for our message — if we are giving the kind of creative, life-giving alternative to what we call the ‘culture of death,’ ” Dolan said. “So it’s not just that we’re constantly condemning something, it’s that we’re proposing an alternative.”

God bless the man! An intelligent discussion of morality from a universal philosophical perspective – and the reporter asks some decent questions, too. Good interview.
