Cardinal Timothy Dolan denounces Paris attacks, says satirists not to blame


Cardinal Timothy Dolan on Tuesday denounced the Paris terror attacks by Islamic extremists as "an abomination" and "a nauseating perversion of religion," and he stressed that no matter what cartoons were published by the satirical weekly targeted by the killers, they did not justify violence.

In finding no justification for the deaths on the Charlie Hebdo editorial staff, Dolan seemed to part ways with another prominent New York Catholic, Bill Donohue of the Catholic League, who essentially said the newspaper editors had brought on their own slaughter.
