Today’s highly interesting read (07/05/20): For God’s sake, stop demonizing the NYPD: Cardinal Dolan

Today’s read is from Timothy Cardinal Dolan, the archbishop of New York, formerly the archbishop of Milwaukee. Here’s an excerpt, followed by a link to Dolan’s complete column.

Our valiant police officers have one of the most perilous, stressful duties around, and from what I have seen in my nearly dozen years here, they do it with care, compassion and competence.

Now we have added to their load with continual, at times exaggerated, rash and inaccurate criticism, combined with rocks, Molotov cocktails, and taunts. But we know that while bad apples there indeed may be, they are very rare. As I mentioned to Police Commissioner Dermot Shea during a recent meeting, this point particularly resonates with me, as I have seen the overwhelming majority of good, faithful priests tarred by the heinous actions of a very few.

Read Dolan’s complete piece here.
