Cardinal Dolan connects vote for Romney with better faith


New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the head of the U.S. bishops’ conference, has insinuated that Catholics who voted for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney are more adherent to their faith than those who voted for President Barack Obama, a Democrat.

Dolan, who is seen by many as the de facto leader of the country’s some 77 million Catholics, makes the connection between faith and politics in a Nov. 15 column in his archdiocesan newspaper, Catholic New York, titled “Looking Back at Election Day.”
