[there are obviously very sincere catholic journalists out there. i'm referring to the very vocal ones that are obvious dissenters who claim to be the oxymoronic "moderate" or "progressive" catholics but who are in truth nothing more exiting than your everyday run-of-the-mill heretics.]
one has to be a true moron not to see that the Catholic Church is persecuted by the mainstream media. the irony of course is that so many mainstream journalists claim to be catholic. i sometimes wonder whether or not they embrace the title of the very church they so rabidly persecute just for cheap shock value. at least it seems twisted and, oh let's just be honest, perverse; but at worst, it's scandalous. truly scandalous.
