Meanwhile, outside the rallies…

From the looks of our Metblogs coverage of the rallies, it appears as though they were very successful. For us wage slaves who couldn’t get out early enough to attend and who cross the state lines to commute (and thus avoid downtown DC), traffic was unbelievably light during the rush hour. The trip that usually takes me over 1 hour took about 35 minutes. Of course, the congressional break is also a contributing factor to the easing of traffic, but I’ll have to say that overall, the commute was about as good as it could get.

I did note that Cardinal McCarrick spoke at the rallies tonight, but for some odd reason, I don’t ever recall the rally being mentioned… hmm, so the Cardinal speaks and yet there is little mention of the rally at Mass? Strange.

    Perhaps the Cardinal chose to not mix religion and politics, and was speaking purely for himself? Just a thought.

    That’s the trade that religious organizations are supposed to make – but often flout – in exchange for tax-free status: no political lobbying. Kudos to the Cardinal for honoring the social contract and rendering unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s.
