Cardinal Dolan not questioning Governor’s Catholic Standing, spokesman says


When questioned on a radio broadcast as to whether the governor’s support for legal abortion and same-sex marriage had endangered Cuomo’s status as a Catholic, Cardinal Dolan said: “That’s something that I talk turkey with him about.” The cardinal declined to elaborate.

But Joseph Zwillin, the spokesman for the New York archdiocese, assured reporters that the cardinal “would not, and did not, suggest the governor might not be a Catholic in good standing going forward.”
