Anti-Catholic Oliphant Cartoon
Accusations of pedophilia against pop-star Michael Jackson prompted several cartoons with Catholic clergy tie-ins, most notably this widely published Oliphant effort. Dr. John Dillon of Gaithersburg, Maryland sent along a copy he saw in the St. Petersburg Times (Florida). What made his submission stand out was a copy of several good “letters to the editor” which appeared several days after the cartoon’s publication together with (will wonders never cease?) a published note of apology from the editor!
