pot, meet kettle

By Diogenes (articles ) | Aug 11, 2009

Anthony Stevens-Arroyo-- who for obscure reasons is employed by the Washington Post as a regular Catholic contributor to an "On Faith" blog-- asks the question:

Is It a Sin to Listen to Rush?

He concludes, generously, that it is not necessarily sinful to listen to Limbaugh; it's only sinful to agree with him. Along the way, Stevens-Arroyo says that Rush Limbaugh is a racist, a sexist, a homophobe, and a liar. (In passing he also refers to former Vice President Cheney is "torturer-in-chief" and to opponents of Obamacare as "right-wing nuts.") The trouble with Rush Limbaugh, this intrepid blogger tells us, is that he "engages in ridicule of persons and principles he dislikes and in exaggeration of what he likes." Oh, and you don't, Anthony?

Stevens-Arroyo concludes his diatribe with a pious sentiment:

I thank God that in Catholic America there are a growing number of us who tune out hate speech.

For purposes of comparison, check Luke 18:11.
