Bipartisan Meddling

Apparently bringing religion in both party conventions is supposed to be good for America than Cardinal Dolan going to only one party convention! New York Cardinal Dolan is planning to bless the Democratic Nominee next week. Expectation is with this even handedness, the controversy will go away. In a way it will go away, but the spectacle of a religious leader of only one (probably the richest one) denomination blessing America's Politics is not very comfortable. Founders wanted to keep religion separate from the business of 'conducting peoples will for governance' and here we are crossing that line very much visibly. 

But let us say, if Cardinal Dolan's prayers indeed bring 'badly needed peace' in American Politics; all will be worth and we can forget any misgivings there.
