Catholic Cardinal Dolan On Obama & Catholic Support

Great segment but I struggled with Cardinal Dolan's final statement about him staying out of the "personal" life of his congregation--as relating to endorsing or speaking out against a candidate like Obama. He got off the right foot by expressing that it was "crazy" to think there was a "Berlin Wall" between politics and faith and then made that remark at the end. If a candidate is completely at odds with Scripture why would he choose not to voice his opposition using the it's too "personal" excuse as a defense? He seems like a gutsy guy but I think he may fear backlash from his congregation more than totally committing to destroying the unbiblical "Berlin Wall."
