On Ash Wednesday, radio talk show host Howard Stern continued his assault on Catholicism, this time by doing a mock blessing with cigar ashes. The league complained once again to his producers but has no confidence that anything will be done about him. Those who think that Catholics should just accept Stern for what he is should think again: he once issued an apology to Hispanics for making anti-Latin remarks. This shows that Stern a) has a conscience b) is capable of extending apologies and c) hates Catholicism so much he just doesn’t care what Catholics think of him.
League members can write to Infinity Broadcasting, 600 Madison Avenue, New York, New York 10022 to register their outrage.
