Angry at criticism of Pontiff, archbishop cancels newspaper subscription

Catholic World News - April 05, 2010

Archbishop John Vlazny of Portland, Oregon, has cancelled his subscription to the local newspaper, The Oregonian, and recommended that pastors do the same, to protest an editorial cartoon mocking Pope Benedict XVI. The archbishop said that the cartoon had been "a portrayal dripping with hostility, an attack against our high priest." The newspaper issued a public response denying the charge of anti-Catholicism.

    Come, now. They're clearly not exhibiting anti-Catholicism. They're on the record denying it, so they're clear to print any bigoted dreck they please.
