The New York Times Insincere Outrage - The Catholic Church and The ACLU

During Holy Week the Catholic Church was put under attack by The New York Times. The timing of the reporting seems more than a little dubious to me. Now, I am not Catholic, so I have no dog in this fight.

I will concede that the church was unwilling to deal with pedophiles priests that they had in their midst. There needs to be a price to pay for that unwillingness. In many ways that price has been paid in very large settlements with victims. Another price was the bad press and the difficulty of making up the ground they lost with some of the faithful.

My question is where is the Times' outrage at the ACLU. Obviously they rightly feel that people who molest young children should be called out and pay a price; they also feel anyone who helps cover it up should also pay a price. The ACLU has been very vigorous in their protection of North American Man Boy Love Association (NAMBLA). NAMBLA gives advice on how to lure children to older men who are looking to have sex with young boys. They also give advice on vacation spots around the world where Man/Boy sex is easy to find and very little chance of getting arrested. Shouldn't the Times' be just as outraged at this? The ACLU also has done work with people who appear on registered sex offenders lists, saying that their civil rights are being violated with all the rules about where they can live. Doesn't this help those offenders to continue with their sick obsession with having sex with unwilling underage participants?

So why is the Times outraged at the church but not the ACLU? One could easily conclude that it is because they are Christians.

I am Catholic and so I'd like to throw in my two cents worth about the ultimate reason for the witch hunt being conducted by the media. While it is demonstrably true that sexual abuse is occurring in many different places, whether schools, other faiths, in pornography or the home I don't see any real effort by the media to attack anything but the Church. This tells me these stories of sexual abuse are not directed towards ending the abuse but destroying the Church. The question is, why?

I believe it transcends any specific teaching. Sure, the left doesn't like the consistent stand the Church has taken against abortion or homosexual marriage. But I don't think this is the core reason for this campaign of subversion. The reason is authority. The Church stands as the last vestige of Christian moral authority on earth with the power to stand in the way of the Satanic goal of the "New World Order". Everything those that follow Marxism have worked for is on the cusp of fruition; central control, redistribution of wealth, the state as the final arbiter of human rights and the enslavement of all mankind. Only the Roman Catholic Church stands as a bulwark against this tide of Satanic subjugation.

This is the reason for the campaign of lies and hate. This is the reason that the Church must fall. Satan cannot get to the center of the Church, her teachings and doctrine, but he can attack the weaknesses of those selected by God to lead us. He can undercut their moral authority and by doing so he can marginalize the truth that is so desperately needed today.

This is the reason for the attack.

Don't forget--We Mormons are standing with ya! And we're not so popular, either. "Progressives" don't like moral absolutes. They don't want to be told that there is absolute right, or absolute wrong, and they certainly don't want to be reminded of the consequences. Well, they can try to silence our voices, but they can never escape the laws of Heaven, and the inescapable consequences of defying the God of Heaven and earth. Sooner or later, everyone pays the piper.
