The teflon cardinal
For months reporters in Los Angeles have been looking for clear evidence that Cardinal Mahony was guilty of misfeasance of malfeasance of the sort that drove Cardinal Law into premature retirement. So far they haven't found the proverbial smoking gun. But as this op-ed in the LA Times shows, they're still looking, and they're getting close.

Los Angeles is really the most dreadful diocese. Between having to endure Richard McBrien's snippy, effete pronouncements in "The Tidings" every week and the annual Religious Education Congress, you've got modernist Catholicism at its worst. But what's really awful is the fact that there are no seminarians. I mean none. Better we should have a rundown dump of a cathedral and have men to serve God's people than what we have now. It's a corrupt system that's got to go. Where is Rome in all this?

His Eminence, Roger Dodger, the Teflon king of Los Angeles won't escape justice on this earth much longer -- for those that suspect that the prosecutors are closing in, some extra prayers to St Michael the Archangel will surely speed things along. Vae Victus. Woe to the conquered.
