Dear God, please make your servant Roger stop talking.
It's funny what kicks you over the edge into returning to the blog.
Say with with me: "$660 million!"
Considering his own role in the perpetration of crimes by homosexual predators in the Los Angeles Archdiocese (do the names of priestly predators Father Michael Wempe and Michael Baker ring a bell?) the above "oops" speech from the Teflon Cardinal is vexing in the extreme. One need not ask why he didn't step down; that's obvious. The real question is, Why didn't the Holy See put some teeth into a "suggestion" that he do so?
Few people argue that Cardinal Law did worse than his more leftist brother Cardinal of the West. Yet the mainstream media treatment has been noticeably irenic, if occasionally scolding, toward Cardinal Mahoney.
I suspect our betters in the MSM admires the Cardinal's penchant for making "fall-over-yourself-with-compassion-understood-as-okaying-federal-crimes" statements like the one Mahoney made last week on illegal aliens -- in which, as always he avoids using the words illegal and aliens.
To quote another movie involving sheep, they wish they knew how to quit him.
