Marquette University Professor Say Archbishop Betrays Church Teaching

Former Priest Dan Maguire 2006, Archbishop Dolan (then of Milwaukee) corrected Dan Maguire for claiming that Catholics could support abortion and marriage between couples of the same sex. Maguire had sent two pamphlets titled The Moderate Roman Catholic Position on Contraception and Abortion and A Catholic Defense of Same-Sex Marriage to all 270 bishops in the United States. The USCCB agreed with Archbishop Dolan and corrected Maguire in 2007. [Note that I said "corrected." He was not excommunicated.] So how does Maguire react to the constructive dialogue between House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan and Archbishop Timothy Dolan on how to help the poor while also addressing our debt crisis? Well. He claims that Archbishop Dolan ‘betrays Church teaching.’ Yes, I know. This seems rather awkward coming from the same theologian who has called on Pope Benedict XVI to resign last year. You see, Maguire thinks Dolan’s letter suffers from an ”outrage deficit.” The dissident theologian thinks Chairman Ryan should have received a letter full of anger and scorn from Archbishop Dolan.

I wouldn't praise any Democrat or Republicans or Tea Party candidate or Supreme Court Justice or any other politician.

I've never even heard of any politician who tries to imitate the selflessness of Christ. Such a politician would ignore his own beliefs and do his best to represent those who he represents -- reflecting their values, not his own. And he would try to integrate those values with the values of other interested parties who he also represents-- world values, national values, state values. Again, this would require that he ignore his own values. Essentially, he would be asked to have so much humility and selflessness that his own sense of ego disappears. He would be trying to live “love your neighbor” in the truest sense.

I am describing someone who tries to be Christ-like. I am describing a Saint.
