The writers and editors of the National catholic Fishwrap owe Bishop Robert Finn an apology.
Testosterone is in the news again from coast to coast. The new reality TV follows the misadventures of over-sexed men, their victims, and their defenders. It looks like a cartoon about a dysfunctional high school.
Reading from the left, in California Arnold Schwarzenegger (football coach), gets a housekeeper pregnant and lies about it for 15 years or so while his wife raises their son, born a few days earlier.
In the Mid West, Kansas City-St. Joseph Bishop Robert W. Finn (chaplain) earnestly defends not reading a year-old, four-and-a-half-page Catholic school principal’s memo detailing weird behavior by one of his priests, even after finding pornography on the priest’s computer.
In the nation’s capitol, Congressman Anthony D. Weiner (assistant principal) weepingly admits he is so enamored of his physical endowments that he Tweets photographs of them to total strangers.
And, in New York, Dominique Strauss-Kahn and Mahmoud Abdel-Salam Omar (language department) strenuously defend against sex abuse claims by hotel maids.
As we watch the stories unfold, we are left sitting in the school cafeteria wondering how these stereotypes got in charge in the first place.
This is disgusting and unworthy even of the Fishwrap.
Schwarzenegger, Wiener, Strauss-Kahn, Omar and FINN?
National catholic Fishwrap owes Bishop Robert Finn an apology for this insult.
The rest of her column, obvious condoned by the editors, is also an insulting personal attack.
They should not run Zagano’s stuff and nonsense again until she apologizes for drawing a moral equivalence between Bp. Finn and those other three figures.
Stuff and nonsense is one thing, and in stuff and nonsense Zagano’s and NCFishwrap‘s columns will surely abound. We can differ and even bicker about stuff and nonsense.
This was a vile smear.
