Critical of Remarks


Your report on the call of 600 Catholic leaders with President Trump mischaracterizes the objections of many Catholics like me to Cardinal Dolan’s participation (CNY, May 7). I take no issue with the cardinal’s participation. I take issue with his remarks to the president, perhaps appropriate in personal conversation but not in a public Catholic lobbying forum.

In addition, your reporting clearly and significantly repeats several of the president’s statements by which he represents himself as a defender of the Faith. I do not subscribe to his personal opinions. Neither do I subscribe to and support this newspaper to serve as a voice for unremarked political campaign opinions by the president. Haven’t we had enough with political powers as defenders of the Faith?
