WATCH: Archbishop Timothy Dolan's Anti-Gay Sermon (Saunders Cartoon)

| Tue Oct. 4, 2011 3:14 PM EDT

Editors' note: Mother Jones illustrator Zina Saunders creates editorial animations riffing on the political news and current events of the week. In this week's animation, the nation's most powerful Catholic bishop, Archbishop Timothy Dolan, sends Obama a stern message in opposition to gay marriage. This comes on the heels of a letter from the bishop that threatens "a national conflict between church and state of enormous proportions" if the administration takes steps to repeal DOMA. As always, that's Zina Saunders doing her own voice work.
