I am sharing with you the comments from Fr. Frank Pavone and Michael Gaynor concerning Archbishop Dolan's invitation to Obama to attend the Al Smith Catholic Charity Dinner in New York on October 18th.
Fr. Pavone: “I’m all in favor of protocol and understand the difference between respecting the President’s policies vs. respecting his office,” Father Pavone said.”But there comes a time when the polite putting aside of differences for a while amounts to scandal.”
“There comes a time when enough is enough and we can no longer afford to give people a reason to doubt our position as a Church. On August 1, the unjust HHS mandate went into effect for Priests for Life and millions of other Americans, and I announced to our staff that we are disobeying the mandate,” Pavone said in comments to LifeNews. “So no, I don’t think the invitation is appropriate at this time.”
Michael Gaynor: "The invitation was not merely inappropriate, it was shameful."
