Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Who Cares About the Children, Apparently Cared Even More About the Catholic Church’s Money

This is Cardinal Timothy Dolan speaking immediately after last week’s Supreme Court rulings on gay marriage:

The common good of all, especially our children, depends upon a society that strives to uphold the truth of marriage. Now is the time to redouble our efforts in witness to this truth. These decisions are part of a public debate of great consequence. The future of marriage and the well-being of our society hang in the balance.

This is what we learned about Dolan today, after the release of thousands of pages of documents regarding the Catholic Church’s sexual abuse scandal:

Files released by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Milwaukee on Monday reveal that in 2007, Cardinal Timothy F. Dolan, then the archbishop there, requested permission from the Vatican to move nearly $57 million into a cemetery trust fund to protect the assets from victims of clergy sexual abuse who were demanding compensation.

So Dolan’s all about the children… unless they want compensation for the abuse they suffered at the hands of Catholic priests.
