New York Archbishop’s “60 Minutes” Interview: “When it comes to baseball, I think I can be pro-choice.”


The interview with New York’s Catholic Archbishop Timothy Dolan, speaks for itself.

Not a hatchet job. Not a softball, p.r. exercise, either.  The same is true for the other “bonus” interviews on various, high profile church issues of the day. The main interview runs slightly more than 11 minutes.

Well worth watching.

For example:

He lives in a small mansion connected by a tunnel to St. Patrick’s, where each day he must pass his own final resting place – the crypt – a constant reminder that his path to glory leads but to the grave.

“I’m supposed to go here,” he told Safer, looking at a small “available space” in the crypt. “Now although Cardinal Egan teases me that he wonders if one is gonna be enough, so I don’t know what we’re gonna have to, I might have to rent a space and a half.”
