In yet another example of stunning self-absorption by a Catholic official, Cardinal Roger Mahony blogged today about how “difficult” it is for him to “never rationalize. . . never protest misunderstandings, and never get angry because of false accusations.”
The irony here is that no Catholic official in the US has worked harder or spent more money to rationalize decades of irresponsible actions than Mahony. Even now, in retirement, he repeatedly uses his blog to defend the indefensible and posture as a victim, heaping more pain on the thousands who have been sexually victimized by 280 LA predator priests and several more from his first diocese in Stockton.
