Cardinal Dolan Says The White House is "Strangling" The Church

Money quotes:
"They tell us if you're really going be considered a church, if you're going to be really exempt from these demands of the government, well, you have to propagate your Catholic faith and everything you do, you can serve only Catholics and employ only Catholics"
"When did the government get in the business of defining for us the extent of our ministry? It is almost like we are being punished for the fact that we serve a lot of people and don't ask for baptismal certificates at the door."
"For the first time we can remember a bureau of the federal government seems to be radically intruding into the internal definition of what the Church is. We can't seem to get that across."
