CATHOLIC BLOGGERS! ACTION ITEM! POLL ALERT! Time Magazine on Card. Dolan via @FatherZ

ACBlog Editor’s Note: Let’s Go Readers….Let’s show Time Magazine how much we support our Faith!

 

Bloggers! Please pick this up.  You don’t have to link to me. Just DO IT. Solidarity!The dreadful TIME Magazine(dreadful when it comes to anything about the Catholic Church) is having a poll and you should participate.From their site:

The 2012 TIME 100 Poll

Cast your votes for the leaders, artists, innovators, icons and heroes that you think are the most influential people in the world. Official voting ends on Friday, April 6, and the poll winner will be included in the TIME 100 issue. The complete TIME 100 list will be chosen by our editors and revealed on TIME.com on Tuesday, April 17.

Note well the language: “influential”.

It does NOT say “whom you like” or “whom you agree with”.  

It says “influential”.

Given what is going on in the USA right now, Timothy Card. 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”.

Card. 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 this our battle in the news, they could say, “Hey! Keep in mind that Card. Dolan is considered in the top 100 by TIME…”, or, if you are an enemy, “Why should the White House listen to Card. 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.  You know that what I am saying is true.

Here is what it looks like on the page (with my easy arrows):

See those social media sharing buttons?  Use them.  Let’s get some sizzle going here … on our side.

Here is how the voting stands as I write:

I will guarantee … guarantee… that the “No Way” votes are coming from liberals (TIME’s readership is nothing if not liberal… okay, they are obtuse, too…) NOT because they think Card. Dolan is NOT “influential” but because they hate what he stands for, or they want free contraception, or they simply hate the Catholic Church.

If I am wrong about that, if they are voting “No” because they really think he isn’t “influential”, I’ll buy TIME’s editor a whiskey sour.

So…CLICK HERE and vote… VOTE… VOTE!

UPDATE 2324 GMT:

I think this is moving well, because people are using the Twitter button.  Use those social network buttons.
