Words of Fr. John Zuhlsdorf from his blog:
Given what is going on in the USA right now, Timothy Cardinal Dolan, as President of the USCCB, engaged on our behalf in a battle with the White House over the religious liberty and civil rights of all Americans… and making headway… is nothing if not “influential”.
Cardinal Dolan should be on that list. If he is on that list, he’ll get some “street kred”, though the newsies will ignore it. Will it make huge difference? Perhaps not. But when pundits and talking heads prattle about our battle in the news, they could say, “Hey! Keep in mind that Cardinal Dolan is considered in the top 100 by TIME…”, or, if you are an enemy, “Why should the White House listen to Cardinal Dolan? Nancy Pelosi, Lady Gaga and Kathleen Sebelius are on the TIME list and Dolan isn’t! Theeeyyyy support the PREZ-i-dent!” Yes, newsies and talking heads can be that shallow. But this is the world we live in.It would be so good for the Catholic Church (as a way of sharing our faith and credibility) if Cardinal Dolan ended up on this list in TIME Magazine!
