In his closing benediction, Timothy Cardinal Dolan gave the kind of benediction that the Obama re-election campaign probably feared he would give when Dolan was initially rejected, and later approved, to give the closing prayer.
â€œGrant us the courage to defend lifeâ€¦waiting to be born, welcomed & protected,â€ he said, excoriating Democrats to support religious liberty as well in light of the controversial Obama HHS mandate that Catholics and pro-life advocates oppose. Dolan prays for â€œlife, without which no other rights are secured.â€
â€œGod grants us the right to life so we can choose liberty and happiness,â€ he said, adding that unborn children should â€œbe welcomed and protected.â€ He referred to the right to life, without which no other right has meaning, saying, â€œWe praise You for the gift of life, grant us the courage to defend it.â€
â€œRenew in all our people a profound respect for religious liberty, the first, most cherished freedom,â€ he said.
The prayer went over well with people on Twitter.
â€œCardinal Dolanâ€™s prayer included religious liberty, & respect for human life, including unborn. Hope those @ the DNC were listening,â€ said Matt Hanafin.
â€œCardinal Dolan is praising God for the gift of life at the convention of a party who spews hate about LIFE,â€ added TamiNantz.
