Jeremy Lott’s article, “Crisis Management” (9/27/04) contains some errors. Besides referring to an organization that doesn’t exist (“Catholics for Choice”) he engages in some curious speculation.
Referring to Catholic League president Bill Donohue’s press release on Deal Hudson, Lott writes, “Responding to complaints, the Catholic League has removed the press release from its website….” How does he know this? In fact, the release was removed because Deal Hudson requested that we remove it. We acceded to his request because he wanted to put this issue behind him. As for Lott’s remark that we “attempted a joke at the Virgin Mary’s expense,” we have files that he can look at to see real jokes at Her expense.p>Finally, the characterization of Fr. Benedict Groeschel as a “ringer” is unfair. To say that his reaction to the sex-abuse crisis in the Church amounts to “blaming journalists” shows an ignorance of what Fr. Groeschel has actually written and spoken about on this topic. br> — Louis J. Giovino br> Director of Communications br> Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights br> New York, New York /p>
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
