This year’s Al Smith Dinner, under the auspices of the NY Archdiocese, will include President Obama, despite Obama’s disregard or disrespect for the Catholic church as evidenced by its requirements under Obamacare in direct conflict with teachings and practices of the Church, and lack of a conscience clause. Mike Long, State Chair told the New York Post, he will instead attend a dinner, sponsored by a pro-life organization, honoring former U.S. Senator Jim Buckley.
The invitation of Obama has cased a stir, given previous omissions of President Clinton, John Kerry and President George W. Bush. See the NY Post story click below:
