The Tidings is at it again

Cardinal Roger Mahony's The Tidings is at it again -- attacking religious conservatives.

Does this Prince of the Church use his newspaper to attack the obvious targets right in his own back yard, targets that many another bishop in his place would attack? For instance, does he attack Hollywood, that great corrupter of souls, that damnation-making fountain of filth? No, he takes money from Hollywood, lots of it. Does he attack the brazen pornographers in the Valley who make thousands of incredibly evil productions every year? No.

Does The Tidings attack L.A.'s dozens of abortion mills that kill tens of thousands of babies a year and exploit and injure so many women and girls? No. Does The Tidings attack the heretics in this Archdiocese who promote abortion, priestesses and the homosexual agenda? No. Does The Tidings attack the sects, who seduce countless Catholics away from the Faith? No.

You see, the Cardinal sees a far greater danger to the people of this Archdiocese: Religious conservatives. So he uses The Tidings to attack us, and in a particularly underhanded way. The article he selects, "Author examines religious right's 'hijacking' of Jesus" (click on this post's title), in the July 14 issue, creates a straw man, a caricature, by attributing to religious conservatives various attitudes and positions that most of us do not share.

Don't look now, your Eminence, but The Tidings is bearing false witness. I do not know anyone who supports Jerry Falwell or Pat Robertson. And of the many pro-lifers I know, their opinions are all over the map about the war in Iraq. Nor do they support "the rich" over the poor; some of us ARE the poor, the powerless, simple good souls, those without influence in the world.

The Tidings will not stop us by lying about us and calling us names. Not ever. We will keep on voting pro-life and anti-the homosexual agenda, not because of being "for the rich" or "for the war." And The Tidings can be sure we know that the irreligious Left does NOT help the poor but oppresses them; for just one example, witness the Left supporting abortion and NEVER lifting a finger to save preborn babies and their moms.

We see through The Tidings. So do many people, which is why its circulation is microscopic.

Yes, it is true. People who actually believe in Jesus are the problem.

The name of the Archdiocesan rag is so ironic, taken, I presume, from the Gospel of St. Luke, Chapter 2:

"And the angel said to them: Fear not; for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, that shall be to all the people:

For, this day, is born to you a Saviour, who is Christ the Lord, in the city of David. 12 And this shall be a sign unto you. You shall find the infant wrapped in swaddling clothes, and laid in a manger."

Whatever one's opinion is of President G.W. Bush, he is not a born again Christian. His encounter with an evangelical person in his life brought him back to religion, but he did not remain in that particular section of Christianity. He was raised Episcopalian and is now a practicing Methodist (his wife's religion as in she was raised in it). He is certainly influenced to some degree by his Episcopalian parents and Roman Catholic brother (Gov. Jeb who is also a Knight of Columbus).

Just FYI...

Anonymous,

Many receive the Tidings because Mahony, in violation of Canon Law, forces Parishes to take a quota he determines of Tidngs Subscriptions. I know one Pastor who files them in his round file!

Anyone with any intelligence at all can answer your question.

Barbara,

The name "Tidings" is because at one time it pretty much fit that description, Mahony changed all of that.

Mathew,

Thanks for letting us know that Jeb Bush is a Knight. We will make sure he is aware of that pro-abort Knights protected by Supreme and in most cases State. Unfortunately this year the Supreme Convention has been planned at a Hotel in Florida that is virtually inaccessible to demonstrators, or we would be there!

Instead we will soon have posted on our Website "Knights of Columbus Dishonor Roll of Pro-Abortion, Pro-Sodomite Knights" Anyone wishing to help on this project is encourage to contact us or call me at 714-491-2284.

God bless, yours in Their Hearts,
Kenneth M. Fisher

Hi, Matthew,

Thanks for all the info on President Bush. Let us hope and pray that he does veto the baby-killing embryonic stem cell bill.
