Oliver Semmes says,
The subject is a cartoon appearing in the July 12, 2012, issue of the Pensacola News Journal. (See below) This religious prejudice comes as no surprise to me. The News-Journal is a strong voice supporting President Obama. He has found the Catholic Church to be a strong voice opposed to his attack on religious freedom. As a matter of fact most enemies of freedom; Nazi Germany, USSR, Poland, and others; found that the greatest obstacle to their plans remains the Catholic Church.
Were the News Journal editor grounded in world history even he would find the cartoon grossly unjust. On the other hand it appears that his regard for his Catholic readers is reflected in the words of Virgil, “It never worries the wolf how many sheep there be.”
By the way have not subscribed to the Pensacola News Journal for years, because of an earlier PNJ criticism of the Catholic Church. At 82 I do miss the obituary, and must get that by alternate means.
I do not mean to be coy or flip about this serious breach of good journalism, truth, and fairness…stewardship of social communications. The current state of much of our print media is a grave threat to our freedom. The silence of all our citizens, in response to President Obama’s attack on religious freedom, is equally alarming. There is no Good in this cartoon.
I hope that Virgil’s words do not apply to America.
