I have not heard from the 2 NY geniuses, Chris Matthews and Mayor Bloomberg. Chris an ex-Catholic who can't stop talking once his mouth opens to breath, usually has some very unsound advice for Catholic leaders and I am sure that he will pontificate and advise the Church absolute free of charge.
To get to the rank of Cardinal one does not preach or believe in concepts in direct opposition of Church Dogma and History.
For those who can't tell when Chris Matthews is pontificating outside his influential capacity, look at his face. The first sign is that his eyes are open and the second is that his lips and tongue are moving.
Anything he says without moving his lips can be believed. All else is inappropriate.
