BALANCING BIGOTRY

On February 8, the Richmond Times-Dispatch raised the following question: “What explains the Catholic church

[sic] being so desperate for priests that it is trying to recruit them through billboard ads?” What caught our eye is that this wise-crack was placed as a box insert in a favorable editorial on Israel. The curious juxtaposition caused us to ask, “For the sake of balance, will you now take a stab at Jews and place it inside an editorial favorable to the Holy See?”

Items like this, while hardly of great magnitude, are nonetheless important: they prove to us that anti-Catholicism is a bigotry that can strike at any time.
