The Ted In Full

So the Canadian episcopal conference has done us the favour of posting the complete text of Cardinal McCarrick's remarks to the CCCB plenary the other day on dialogue with politicians.

Notably, as scripted, the remarks given by the retired DC prelate -- pictured here with Cardinal Marc Ouellet of Quebec, the Canadian primate (and B16 "kitchen cabinet" member) -- are missing some of the zingers featured in first-cycle reports from the gathering... extemporaneous adds, you say?

Anyways, give it a full read. With all the Deus caritas est quoting, it makes for quite the au courant voter guide.
