Timothy Dolan's job

Observes James Carroll:
The moral authority of the Roman Catholic hierarchy is at its lowest ebb since the Inquisition. In the United States, the once-influential bishops have willingly transformed themselves into a mascot-lobby for the Republican right.

Timothy Dolan's job is to put the best face on the reactionary hierarchy's slow motion act of self-destruction.
Mr. Dolan is formerly of Milwaukee.

Authoritarians need to be nasty so people can see what they are trying to do. Dolan is the happy face of oppression.

I wonder how much today's decision saying that the insurance company did not cover the current crop of sexual assault suits will help Dolan's reputation (JS article).
