At least this one is out to pasture.
"Though dozens of his brother bishops have said they were "scandalized'' or "in shock and deep distress'' that our pro-choice president will speak and be honored at the University of Notre Dame this weekend, retired Archbishop John R. Quinn of San Francisco has let President Obama know that not all pro-life Catholics -- or even all strongly pro-life Catholic prelates – see things that way.
"I am writing as a Catholic Bishop to offer a different voice from the often strident outcries over your forthcoming visit to Notre Dame,'' Quinn said in the April 22 letter. Today, he provided a copy of it to PoliticsDaily.com. Quinn, a former president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, went on to praise Obama as a history-making role model, an inspiring family man and a thoughtful person. Between the lines, his message was, Don't let those guys waving signs get you down.
In a phone interview on Thursday, I asked Quinn why he had written to the president – especially since at age 80, he so rarely speaks out these days: "No, I really don't,'' he said, "but I just thought there needed to be a positive note in this whole discourse.''
Though he does not agree with Obama on abortion rights, "it's not that the only issue involved is the life issue, though certain people have spoken very vociferously and focused only on that one point.''"

History making? Well, he's the first "president" who isn't actually a citizen. Other than that I'm at a loss. Oh. Wait. he's half-black. But then Bill Clinton said he was the 1st black president.
Waytago, Archbishop Quinn. Use that "seamless blanket" garbage to cover your own rear and suck up to your liberal friends so you look "with it." Same guy that let the "you must pay for domestic partners health care" people walk all over him. Move along. Nothing to see here. Certainly not a real pastor guarding the flock from the wolves. Another "hireling."
