Pope Benedict XVI blasts pornography, but is porn-capital L.A.'s cardinal listening?
What with L.A. being the pornography-production capital of the world, we have to wonder if His Holiness was directing that remark toward L.A.'s Cardinal Roger Mahony, who certainly could fight pornography if he only would.
Will Cardinal Mahony take the Vicar of Christ's comment to heart and now head up a difference-making anti-pornography campaign? Will His Eminence write a pastoral letter about the demonic evil of pornography and about every Catholic's duty to avoid it and to fight it?
We have to wonder, given the Cardinal's 23-year record of virtual silence and inaction when it comes to Hollywood mainstream filth and the overt pornography kingpins.
How can it be that the world's entertainment media capital has a Cardinal who is not an outspoken champion of decency and a fearless crusader against the filth that wounds and kills so many souls?
