New York Times editorial blasts Pope
July 09, 2010
Claiming that Pope Benedict has handled “the pedophilia scandal with no great distinction,” The New York Times blasted the Pontiff in a July 9 editorial, calling upon him to apply the norms of the US bishops’ Dallas charter to the universal Church. The Times editorial fails to note, among other things, that in the judgment of some canonists, the Vatican norms applied by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger since 2001 are tougher than the US bishops’ Dallas charter.

I sometimes get solicitations to subscribe to the NYT. I take the postage free envelope, and put a 3X5 card in it, telling them that they are anti-Catholic. No big impact to be sure, but I like the thought that they are paying the postage for me to tell them the truth.

What in the world do you suppose makes the editors of the NYT think they are qualified to run the Catholic Church? Other than hubris.

The attacks upon our Holy Father, Benedict XVI, are backfiring on the NYT , which is quickly losing all credibility in this matter as it appears to be simply a bigoted anti-Catholic publication with a not so hidden agenda.
