Made in China

Larry Stammer of THE LOS ANGELES TIMES reports ...

Honoring the Catholic heritage of Latinos, a shrine to Mary, the mother of Jesus, at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels will be expanded at a cost of $250,000 and with thousands of pieces of broken china donated by Southern Californians.

On Friday, Cardinal Roger M. Mahony donated a red-trimmed china plate, which Kostelnik ceremonially broke with a hammer before depositing it in a bin.

Full story HERE.

Note that the author of the above "puff piece" is veteran L.A. Times reporter, Larry Stammer. Read about the relationship between Stammer and Mahony HERE.

I certainly don't consider Cardinal Mahony to be one of my china plates.

Mary and her Son would be honored better if Cardinal Mahony invested his time acting like a cardinal should act instead of promoting this useless exercise of vanity.

You can't buy off God with phony works, Rog. Just ask the Pharisees of Jesus' day, with whom you should be well acquainted.
