5:00 – Janet Smith Responds to Criticism From Last Week’s Interview on “Cardinal Dolan, the HHS Mandate and Hypocrisy?”
Last week we discussed with moral theologian Dr. Janet Smith a New York Times article regarding Cardinal Dolan, his fight against the HHS mandate, and what the NYT portrayed as hypocrisy on the part of the Cardinal. The issue centers on Union 1199 – including those union employees at Catholic facilities in New York City – which includes abortion and contraceptives in its healthcare plans. We focused on the moral theology of the situation. Much public debate ensued regarding Janet’s interview, largely focused on areas outside moral theology, and she is back with us to address these other areas, re-state the clear moral theology and take calls.
