Could somebody fax a copy of this to Cardinal George of Chicago?
Mercy Home spokesman Mark Schmeltzer told LifeSiteNews.com that Fr. Donohue was approached by Chicago Cardinal Francis George about the upcoming Clinton fundraiser. "The Cardinal had some very understandable misgivings but he just wanted to be assured this was not a political stop," Schmeltzer told LifeSiteNews.com.
Nah, it's not a "political stop."
Just ask the Illinois Democratic Network.
