If, as a Christian (never mind Catholic) you do something that the NY Times praises you for, I think an examination of conscience is in order. I will say, however, regressive laws on immigration need to be reviewed. SEVERE penalties for exploiting any worker, but illegal particularly, should be enacted AND enforced. This will help to stem the tide as well as improve the quality of life for everyone. As Catholics, we must be concerned for them as well. Remember, charity for all.

Remarkable! Exactly the same thing is true of The Los Angeles Times -- though it usually takes a day or so for the LAT to follow the path blazed by NYT editorial opinion. What can it mean? Mind-melding?

Does the NY times need a "religion correspondant" ? Maybe the Vatican can be persuaded to relinquish the good Cardinal's current job for one in which he can do less damage to the Faithful, and the Cardinal can have a lovefest at the office every afternoon with the rest of the NY Time's staff (no insinuation intended there)
