Cardinal Tobin sends his love to baby — whomever baby is

“NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey archbishop raised a few eyebrows when he tweeted "Nighty-night, baby. I love you," but his spokesman says it was an errant message intended for his sister.
Cardinal Joseph Tobin's spokesman says the leader of the Newark Roman Catholic archdiocese later deleted Wednesday's tweet because it was being misinterpreted.
Spokesman Jim Goodness says Tobin has eight younger sisters and "they're all his baby sisters." Goodness said he doesn't know how the siblings were communicating before the message was tweeted out. Tobin's Twitter account shows he tweets infrequently.”

Cardinal Tobin, who Steven D. Greydanus recently had the pleasure of sitting next to, has said of women in the church, “Maybe my theology isn’t sophisticated enough, but I don’t believe that there’s a compelling theological reason why the Pope couldn’t name a woman cardinal.”

Tobin’s endorsement on Fr. James Martin’s book, Building A Bridge.

Which is why the tweet was addressed to no one right?

  1. Cause, you know, we'll believe anything....

  2. Byzantine Catholic Patriarch excommunicates Francis, RadTrad Thomist. Wonder if that will get any press in the Opus Dei controlled "catholic" media.

    1. It doesn't deserve any press.

      The reason for this is that the video (see below) made by Patriarch Elijah and his clown show the 'Byzantine Catholic Church' are a joke. The 'Byzantine Catholic Church was created in 2009. Originally they accepted the primacy of the papacy and Benedict XVI. Within a year they began their excommunication spree with 265 theologians of the Gregorian University. Further they declared all Novus Ordo catholic bishops anathema except for one. Patriarch Elijah Anthony Dohnal is pro-Putin and surprise, a KGB agent by the code name of TONEK. A circus that that puts the Novus Ordo to shame.


      creation and acceptance of Benedict XVI

      excommunications begin

      all bishop anathema

      background of self-styled Patriarch Elijah

  3. I promise to be more careful with future use of media? Meaning, I will make sure to use my other twitter account to tweet my “sister” �� like I have always done up till now. Yuck.

  4. Great story..
    Heres another for you on DRUDGE
    JEWs are taxing the Holiest Churches in Christendom and stealing lands.

  5. He was born in 1952, eldest of 13 children. He is 66 this year. So, give and take, if his youngest sibling happens to be a girl, she should be at least 40 years old. Baby?? I can understand if he calls his niece baby. Come off it, cardinal. Who's that girl? Lol
