Cardinal Dolan Blasts Hillary Clinton’s Catholic Bashing: It is “Patronizing and Insulting to Catholics”

After CBS and ABC ignored the WikiLeaks revelation that top Hillary Clinton staffers exchanged anti-Catholic rhetoric via e-mail and NBC only offered mere seconds to controversy, one would expect a major U.S. Catholic leader denouncing the comments would draw at least some media attention.
