NY Catholic Gov. Cuomo Publicly Denounces His Own Church

According to Breitbart News: 
"On Friday, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D), who has been widely discussed as a possible 2016 presidential candidate, told Susan Arbetter of The Capitol Pressroom that “extreme conservatives” should leave the state. He said that “extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay” have “no place in the state of New York.”

In one fell swoop the "Catholic" N.Y. Governor has publicly denounced the Church of which he is a member - and effectively alienated every conservative living in the state.

Let's break it down, beginning with "conservatives who are right to life." Abortion is an intrinsic evil, a non-negotiable truth of the Catholic Faith - which he himself was baptized into (and continues to attend and receive the Holy Eucharist.)

"Pro assault weapon."  Regarding the NYS letter which was sent to law abiding citizens to confiscate guns "holding more than five rounds" of ammo. Question for Mr. Cuomo: Do the criminals - you know - the ones who  buy their weapons on the street and don't register them - do they provide you with an address where they can be reached??

"Anti-gay." 
Really? Antagonistic much? The Catholic Church supports Traditional marriage. The church does not support homosexual "acts" or "unions." The church does provide support and counsel for individuals who experience same sex attraction (link provided below.) Here the devisive Mr Cuomo both misrepresents AND again - denounces the church.

How DARE this man tell N.Y. Catholics - that there is no place for them in their own towns, their own homes! That there there is no place in NYS for the Catholic Church! The divisive governor's words are nothing less than outrageous - even diabolical. If this situation were reversed the liberals would be pounding on Governor Cuomo's door until an apology was issued. My question is this: When will HIS apology be forthcoming to the Catholic church?

Courage, an apostolate of the Catholic Church, ministers to persons with same-sex attractions and their loved ones.
