I hardly dug up dirt, the NY Times and Dolan are the ones who made this fornt page news about Dorothy Day.
I understand your point about conversion and so forth but the woman was a communist, a journalist who wrote far left articles, had at least one abortion, it appears she also had a daughter, no husband or father is named, so it becomes presumptive her daughter was born outside of wedlock. Day is also a hero of the marxist left. the very people who did their best to eradicate Catholicism and Christians wherever they held power.
In your opinion Dread, none of this disqualifies her from being named a saint of the Catholic church. Dolan already passes out Dorothy day prayer cards.
