Cardinal Mahony: Casting Stones From a Glass Facade

By John Lillpop

Cardinal Roger Mahony, Archbishop of Los Angeles, is "blessed" with an insufferable ability to triangulate moral decadence, spiritual fraud and craven greed into anti-American political activism.

Even more distressing is the cardinal's unmitigated gall in anointing himself as a moral and spiritual beacon while working non-stop to protect pedophiles and perverts who serve at the will and pleasure of Beelzebub.

Hypocrisy is seldom as blatant as is the case with this meddling old man who touts himself as spiritually and morally superior, yet who has nothing but affection for 12-30 million criminals who have invaded America and who are squatting here illegally.

Being the out-of-touch elitist that he is, Mahony has little time or regard for those who believe in homeland security, fortified borders, rule of law and preservation of American sovereignty, language and culture.

Given his druthers, Mahony would legalize each and every one of the criminal invaders, and would place all of them on a fast-track path to citizenship as well.

And what is the root cause behind Cardinal Mahony's blatant disregard for America, and Americans, while demonstrating benevolent deference to invading criminals from the third world?

Spiritual concern for the poor and downtrodden? Compassion for newcomers simply looking for a better life? Healing and unity through forgiveness and assimilation?

Actually, his hollowness and the church he represents are motivated by an unholy obsession with green-- as in cold, hard cash.

That obsession intensified dramatically with the recent disclosure that the Archdiocese of Los Angeles has agreed to pay the tidy sum of $660 million dollars in order to settle sex abuse law suits filed by victims/parishioners.

It turns out that hundreds of innocent people were allegedly abused by priests whose crimes were then covered up by powerful church officials.

This means that Cardinal Mahony and his minions will write a check for nearly two thirds of a billion dollars in order to drive away the scandals wrought by corrupt "Fathers" acting in the name of God, and their gutless and immoral leaders.

The total amount paid by the U.S. church since 1950 is more than $2 billion, with about a quarter of that coming from the Los Angeles archdiocese.

With increasing regularity, intelligent American parishioners are leaving the church to escape the clutches of pedophiles and perverts who prey on the young and defenseless despicably using the guise of being "men of the cloth."

As the number of American parishioners decline, illegal aliens are desperately needed to replace those departing parishioners, and to bolster the church's dwindling cash flow.

Cardinal Mahony's bleeding-heart foolishness in support of illegal aliens is much more about cash debits and credits, than right and wrong.

Bottom Line: Given the contemptible record of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, Cardinal Mahony would be well advised to keep his own counsel when it comes to decency and morality.
