Domenico Bettinelli makes a good point about Cardinal Mahoney's recent sycretistic Democrat pow-wow over at Our Lady of the Angles Mausoleum and Gift Shop. (Blogger is not letting me post a picture, or else I'm screwing up). Turn the incident around. Make it Bishop Fabian Bruskewitz (without the "interfaith" cohorts) and make the politician, say, Rick Santorum. An conservative bishop publically, er, praying over a..a..a...pro-life Republican mayor-elect?
Can't you hear the sound of a thousand ACLU lawyers having apoplectic fits over the destructon of the Thrice Holy Wall separating Church and State? But His Eminence not only gets a pass from his media enablers, but is praised as broadminded and tolerant. Talk about two sets of rules.
Is it just me or is there momentum building across the LA pews of St. Blog's and elsewhere to organize a petition to have Mahoney removed from his post? Every orthodox Catholic in Los Angeles can tell you a dozen horror stories. One doesn't take pleasure in saying it, but the rot starts at the top. The Archdiocese of Los Angeles will never, ever, ever prosper spiritually or morally under Mahoney, a prelate who may well follow the Law: Cardinal Law.
But, since the belfry tower at the Cathedral is made of both ivory and teflon, forget writing complaint letters to him. Archdiocesan spokeshole Tod Tamberg will only reply that the Cardinal is doing a wunnnnderful job (see the post below about the vice of effeminacy).
This looks like a job for B 16.
