It is not exactly difficult to point out liberal bias in the L.A. Times, but Bill Donahue uncovers a perfect case of it. Cardinal Mahoney spoke out forcibly during Mass about Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez, a Catholic, for supporting a bill to allow doctor-assisted suicide in the state of California
Los Angeles Times writer George Skelton criticized the Cardinal in his April 5 column. In it, he referred to the Catholic Church as “looking like an ugly old political attack dog.” He also accused the Cardinal of violating the American separation of church and state and called for “a bill to reexamine the tax-exempt status of church property.”
Now to rewind just over a year ago the same writer praised the Cardinal.
He noted how an editorial in the Los Angeles Times on March 2, 2006, commended Cardinal Mahony for “reinforcing the right of religious leaders to speak out on the moral ramifications of political issues.” The issue that Cardinal Mahony addressed then was immigration.
I read the same article and this shows the inherint hypocrisy of the media.
During the ’04 campaign, Kerry would invoke the separation of Church and state when questioning his stance on abortion. But doesn’t hesitate to declare how his Catholic upbringing made it his moral duty to help the homeless and poor.
Ah the hypocrisy of the La la Times.
Just goes to show you, people do not hate the Church for her inconsistencies as much as they hate her for doggedly organic consistency.
