Hearing from all sides

By Diogenes (articles ) | Nov 11, 2003

Now that Boston's Archbishop O'Malley has found time to meet with Voice of the Faithful, do you suppose his schedule has opened up enough to allow for a meeting with loyal Catholic parents who oppose the "Talking about Touching" curriculum? Or with one of his own pastors, who has said that the curriculum is a form of child abuse?

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    His Excellency, incidentally, hasn't found the time to move into the South End Rectory...you remember, the move that got him such favorable ink a while back? I mean...how long does it take to pack a suitcase?

    The Archbishop has been prone to the weaknesses of his predecessor. He has stated that he will NOT deny the pro-abort "catholic" politician communion, and the only action he has taken is to silence{in a polite way} a good and faithful priest. Don't be suprised if he opens up the church doors to the dissenters.

    This is not a comment on this item but on the e-mail with the link to this site. I beg to differ with the editor. Diogenes may be a little more prolific than usual today, but he emphatically has not gone crazy. He is dead on target---as usual. (I chuckled off an on for half an hour at the final line of his Last Word column in this month's Catholic World Report. ("If Anglicans could accept Henry VIII as the head of their church, they can accept Gene Robinson as a bishop.")
