Talking Turkeys

by Thomas A. Droleskey

This will be a one or two page article.

Great thought has gone into the composition of this article.

The words used herein have been chosen with great care and reflection.

This brief article is what can be termed as "Memo of the Week to Timothy Michael Dolan" as it contains some pastoral advice to him from none other than Pope Pius XI concerning how to deal with men such as the Governor of the State of New York, Andrew Mark Cuomo.

Timothy Michael Dolan, the conciliar "cardinal archbishop" of New York, is in need of this pastoral advice as he is still trying to use "persuasion" and dialogue" to get Andy Cuomo, who is no less an overbearing thug than his father, former Governor Mario Matthew Cuomo, who turns eighty-one years of age on June 15, 2013, to change his position in support of all manner of social evils, including the chemical and surgical killing of the preborn and so-called "gay marriage."

Indeed, Timothy Michael Dolan speaks so imprecisely about his efforts to "dialogue" with Andrew Mark Cuomo that he had to send his own spokesflack, Joseph Zwilling, out to cover for him after he, Dolan, had made it appear as though Cuomo the Younger was jeopardizing his "good standing" in the counterfeit church of conciliarism by supporting the evils that he does:


New York’s Timothy Cardinal Dolan warned Gov. Cuomo to be ready for a holy battle if he tries to strengthen state abortion-rights laws.

In an interview on an Albany radio station Tuesday, Dolan said Catholic bishops would be “as vociferous and rigorous as possible in our opposition” to the governor’s efforts.

Although Cuomo has yet to release an abortion bill, he’s announced plans to write into New York law protections now provided by federal court decisions like Roe vs. Wade.

The governor’s efforts are aimed at keeping abortion safe and legal in New York even if Roe vs. Wade is overturned or weakened.

Archbishop Dolan said the conviction Monday of Philadelphia abortion provider Dr. Kermit Gosnell on murder charges calls for laws that go the other way instead.

“I am in a bit of consternation as to why in a time when there seems to be kind of a sobering up about these horrors of the unfettered access to abortion, why in New York we are talking about even expanding it further,” Dolan said.

When asked how Cuomo could still consider himself a Catholic in good standing while also promoting abortion legislation, Dolan responded: “That’s something that I talk turkey with him about.”

Dolan spokesman Joseph Zwilling later said the cardinal did not mean to suggest that Cuomo would not be a Catholic in good standing if he went forward with the bill.

"The subject he talks turkey about was abortion,” Zwilling said.

Cuomo shrugged off Dolan’s comments as old news.

The archbishop has mentioned his opposition to the choice law multiple times,” Cuomo said during a news conference later in the day.

We agree to disagree, respectfully, and that is where we are.”

Republicans, led by Senate GOP leader Dean Skelos, have balked at Cuomo’s proposal, calling it extreme and warning it would lead to more late-term abortions.

While lauding Cuomo for his candor on the issue and his willingness to discuss ways to promote alternatives to abortion — such as adoption — Dolan said New York should be looking to curtail the procedure.

Dolan’s comments were not the first time Cuomo’s personal and political views have caused him strife with Catholic Church officials.

In February 2011, a Vatican canon law adviser said Cuomo committed an “objectively sacrilegious” act by taking Communion at a Mass in Albany while also living in “public concubinage” with his girlfriend, Sandra Lee. (Master New York Apostate Dolan takes issue with Gov. Cuomo's move to protect abortion.  For commentaries on the last-mentioned scandal, see Memo To Howard Hubbard: Public Scandal Is Never A Private Matter and Timmy's In The Well (Of Americanism, That Is).)

This is more of a case of talking turkeys than talking turkey.

Yes, one can support the chemical and surgical destruction of the preborn and special "rights" for human beings engaged in the sin of Sodom and live in sin and maintain one's "good standing" in the counterfeit church of conciliarism.

Why not?

Timothy Michael Dolan maintains his "good standing" despite being a known apostate and blasphemer (see Whatever You Want, Just Another Ordinary Outrage Permitted by a Conciliar "Ordinary""You're Not Supposed To Do This", Vast Is The Damage, Francis And Other Judases Abound In Holy Week and Modernism Repackaged as Newness.)

Moreover, Timothy Michael Dolan's promise to start a "holy war" against Andrew Mark Cuomo if the latter proceeds with a bill to protect the chemical and surgical genocide against the innocent preborn in their mothers' wombs is without a shred of credibility.

Yes, this is the same man who huffed and puffed and threatened to blow the house down last year in response to the Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro-Kathleen Sebelius "health care mandate" requiring all employers, including religious institutions, to provide health-insurance coverage for contraception and other "family planning services" (see Ominous Offenders Offending Ominously, Memo To David Axelrod And Other Social Engineers, John Carroll's Caesar, Victims of Compromise, Taking A Figure Of Antichrist At His Worthless Words, Prisoners Of Their Own Apostasy, Timothy Dolan, Meet Timothy Dolan (And Friends), Still Celebrating Half A Century Of Apostasy, Candidate For Man Of The Year?, From John Carroll To James Gibbons To Timothy Dolan, To Help The Children, Fake, Phony, Sanctimonious Fraud, Happy As A Stuffed Clam With Himself and Impossible To Fight Moral Evils With Blasphemy And Error).

How did that turn out?

See for yourselves:


Scaling down a legal fight with the White House, the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York has agreed to drop a request for documents about the government's requirement of insurance coverage for birth control, a court filing on Monday said.

The archdiocese sent a subpoena to President Barack Obama's administration in February asking for documents from White House staff, including Obama himself, for use in a church lawsuit against the contraception mandate.

Citing the burden involved and calling a subpoena of the president's office inappropriate, the White House asked a federal judge to toss out the subpoena on April 4.

A notice filed in U.S. District Court in Washington late on Monday said the archdiocese agreed to withdraw its subpoena. It did not say why.

A lawyer for the archdiocese declined to comment on Tuesday. A spokeswoman for the U.S. Justice Department, which represented the White House in court, had no immediate comment.

The archdiocese is continuing its lawsuit in Brooklyn federal court challenging the Obama administration's health policy requirement that employers generally include coverage of birth control in health insurance plans they offer workers.

The Catholic Church teaches that artificial birth control is sinful because it violates natural law.

Part of the 2010 healthcare law championed by Obama and congressional Democrats, the birth control mandate has some exceptions for religious employers but the New York archdiocese said it expected to incur nearly $200 million each year in penalties if it refuses to comply. (What Most People Think Is the Catholic Church Withdraws Subpoena to Obama on Birth Control.)

Just a tactical legal maneuver?

Don't believe it.

This is a white flag of surrender, and Andrew Mark Cuomo knows it, which is why he will be as slowed down in his quest to "protect" the baby-killing industry in the State of New York, which helped to launch that bloody industry forty-three years ago, as he was in his resolve to provide the legal status of "marriage" to those of the same gender who are engaged in perverse acts in violation of the Sixth and Ninth Commandments.

Here's a bit of pastoral advice to Timothy Michael Dolan. It comes from Pope Pius XI, and I will put this in very, very big bold letters for you, Mister Dolan, so that you can get the point if you don't want to be a well-roasted and thoroughly-cooked turkey at the moment of your Particular Judgment:


Those who hold the reins of government should not forget that it is the duty of public authority by appropriate laws and sanctions to defend the lives of the innocent, and this all the more so since those whose lives are endangered and assailed cannot defend themselves. Among whom we must mention in the first place infants hidden in the mother's womb. And if the public magistrates not only do not defend them, but by their laws and ordinances betray them to death at the hands of doctors or of others, let them remember that God is the Judge and Avenger of innocent blood which cried from earth to Heaven. (Pope Pius XI, Casti Connubii, December 31, 1930.)

Please, "Cardinal" Dolan, don't tell me that Catholics used to speak in these terms.

Catholics still speak with the same voice of Pope Pius XI, which is one of a zillion reasons why you are a talking, babbling turkey who is not a member of the Catholic Church in good standing.

Pray Our Lady's Rosary, ladies and gentlemen.

Pray Our Lady's Most Holy Rosary.
