Not That He's Telling Us Anything We Don't Already Know...

But it carries so much more authority coming from him: Archbishop Timothy Doyle lays waste to perpetual adolescent and embittered former Catholic, Maureen Dowd.
She digs deep into the nativist handbook to use every anti-Catholic caricature possible, from the Inquisition to the Holocaust, condoms, obsession with sex, pedophile priests, and oppression of women, all the while slashing Pope Benedict XVI for his shoes, his forced conscription -- along with every other German teenage boy -- into the German army, his outreach to former Catholics, and his recent welcome to Anglicans.
His Grace was reacting to MoDo's New York Times column containing a laundry list of feminist complaint directed at the Holy Father and Catholic traditionalists (one of her darts is aimed at those who consider it inappropriate to perform that shrill hoary paean to radical feminism,"The Vagina Monologues," on the campuses of Catholic colleges and Universities).

New York Times readers will not see the Archbishop's response, it was rejected for publication. His Grace should take solace, however, knowing that at least 98 percent of Times readers, when seeing his byline, would have skipped over it anyway.
