Cardinal Dolan is becoming a one man gaffe machine. Just this week, he encouraged muslims to remain muslims.
Certainly, the very last thing his very modern model of a modern major Cardinal is muslims becoming Catholic!This is the allegedly problematic statement:
On a recent visit to a mosque, he told the Muslims there that their plight was similar to that of Catholic immigrants 150 years ago, and they face the same challenge of ”how to become loyal, responsible, patriotic Americans without losing their faith.”Cardinal Dolan is certainly not above criticism, but I don't see a problem with what he said. If modern Muslim immigrants lose their faith after moving to America, it is not because they are converting to Christianity, it is because they have become secular hedonists like everybody else. There are certainly some bishops who would encourage Muslims to stay Muslims out of a false sense of ecumenicism, but I strongly doubt that Dolan among them.
