Radio talk show guru Howard Stern is infamous for many reasons, not the least for his Catholic bashing. For example, on many occasions, Stern has libeled priests by making sweeping generalizations on the basis of a few wayward members of the clergy. He has a particular fondness for branding all priests as pedophiles.

It was with some interest, then, that we noted the umbrage that Stern took when he was made the victim of an anti-Semitic remark. It was reported to Stern that a media executive said that the reason Stern wears dark sunglasses is because “he wants to hide his beady Jew eyes cause they’re a window into his insecurity.”

Stern complained publicly that no one investigated this incident further, other than the TV show, Hard Copy.

It’s too bad Stern isn’t as sensitive to priests as he is about himself. A little more reflection on what he says about others might convince him “to do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
