Why I Don't Read the Boston Globe

Diogenes wrote about today's editorial in the Boston Globe regarding Mel Gibson's drunken tirade...

"Anti-Semitism comes easily to those who believe that their faith or political system is the final answer," the Globe informs us. "The very existence of Jews serves as an affront to claims of absoluteness." Huh? That facile statement might apply to totalitarian ideologies. It obviously doesn't apply to religious Jews who see their own faith as the final answer. Nor does it apply to Christians who recognize Jews as our spiritual elder brothers.

Diogenes then summarizes,

To review: If you're a Catholic you're under suspicion of being an anti-Semite. But you still might be OK if you declare independence of Church teaching. The Globe has found a new way to make its favorite argument: that the only good Catholic is a bad Catholic.
This is why I don't read the Globe.  I don't understand why any Catholic who loves their faith does.
