BREAKING NEWS!! Catholic Archbishop Has Backbone...
Film at 11

I ran across this rather terse article just a few minutes ago. Take a gander, then read my open letter to the good Archbishop.

Archbishop questions Clinton rally at Catholic university
San Antonio, Feb. 14, 2008 (
CWNews.com) - Archbishop José Gomez of San Antonio, Texas, has criticized the scheduling of a political rally for Senator Hillary Clinton at a local Catholic university.

The archbishop issued a public statement indicating that he was "neither advised nor consulted" before the Clinton rally was hosted by St. Mary's University on February 13. While emphasizing that he did not intend to instruct his people on how they should vote, Archbishop Gomez questioned the wisdom of holding a political event for Clinton or other candidates "who act in defiance of our fundamental moral principles."

St. Mary's University responded to the criticism by saying that the school did not mean to imply an endorsement of Senator Clinton, and recognized that some political candidates take public stands that are not in accord with Catholic teaching.
To wit, I respond with the following open letter to H.E. Abp Gomez;

You Excellency,
Two things I would like to say to you;

1. Congratulations for having the 'nads to point out the obvious to the baby-butchery enablers at St. Mary's University. I can only hope that in the not too distant future, you will issue something stronger than a few truthful words spoken to the local media.

2. As per your public statement, you were "neither advised nor consulted" by the powers-to-be at SMU prior to the arrival of the Wicked Witch of the North. And? Your Excellency... do you think they give a Tinker's Damn about your authority to re-emphasize and defend authentic Catholic teaching?

Archbishop Gomez, I'll break it down into caveman terms... the "Catholic" so-called leadership at SMU just told you to go screw yourself. Not many others will tell you that, but I will.
Faithfully yours,
Vir Speluncae Catholicus
