Well, at least we can agree on this much.

It seems strange two Archbishops on opposite ends of the planet would come up with similar complaints. I suspect the hand of the Vatican is pushing the dirt under the carpet and needs help to get the press to back off. They are offended when the press writes about the inquisition, condoms, oppression of women, pedophile priest, obsession with sex, and the fact that the press donít attach other groups such as African Americans, Hebrews, or Islam. (how is that for a good neighbor)
I never have liked the Times, but I think I might go buy a copy to show my support for freedom of the press.
Perhaps the 2 different bishops have access to the same internet like you and are able to read what the media is saying?

Just a thought.

It is possible they know how to use the internet, and I would hope they could read, but seeing who Dolan is attacking makes me wonder. The Times Columnist Archbishop Dolan is attaching is Maureen Dowd. It has to be hard to make points for the Church when the person you are questioning is first a Catholic, and than the Winner of a Pulitzer Prize for distinguished commentary.

I'd be willing to buy into the idea that there is a newsletter that was circulated that mentioned Dowd....that could happen.

Or, on the other hand, she's well-known for being quite liberal. Perhaps in this big world, a big denomination like the catholic church had 2 guys that actually read her commentary.

Possible, but with one attacking the Melbourne paper, and the other attacking the Times, I suspect it is the Vatican calling the punches not the Archbishops. The real test will be to see if other high level Catholics managers attack the press in the next weeks.

Maureen Dolan may be liberal, but she is known for telling it like it is. (Something new for the Times.). I would have thought Dolan would have gone after someone without a history of telling the truth regardless of who it hurt, but than again he may be taking his orders from someone who had a grudge against her. Seems she did mention the Popeís membership in Hitlerís youth movement. That might have P___ him off.
