MUST READ!!! CATHOLIC LEAGUE PUSH BACK AGAINST FORMER KANSAS CITY DEAD TREE MEDIA NEWSIE BILL TAMMEUS!!!
Earlier this week we noted that Former Kansas City Star faith writer Bill Tammeus called for the Pope to fire Bishop Finn.
And now . . .
CHECK OUT THE CATHOLIC LEAGUE SMACKDOWN OF TAMMEUS AND CALLING OUT HIS HYPOCRISY!!!
Opening setup . . .
"Yesterday, another open letter was sent to the Vatican seeking the ouster of a bishop; Pope Francis is being asked to remove Kansas City-St. Joseph Bishop Robert Finn from office. The request is coming from another person who is not in communion with the Church—he never was—Presbyterian journalist Bill Tammeus. His letter is being featured by the National Catholic Reporter, a left-wing dissident weekly."
Money line . . .
"The irony is complete: Tammeus, a non-Catholic, is writing to the pope to get a bishop removed; this same man has no record of seeking to keep children safe from molesters in a state known for its enfeebled response; and he (used to) write(s) for a newspaper that championed Anthony Kosnik’s book, Human Sexuality, a work that gave cover to child molesters."
That first line in the section passage is a reference to a tragic situation that's mostly unnoticed among mainstream media . . .
Sex Abuse Scandal Rocks Public Schools
Basically, that's Catholic league leader Bill Donohue noting an EPIDEMIC of sex abuse in public schools that hasn't received much attention. Let's not forget there have been multiple rape and sex abuse accusations among the KCPS this year with virtually no media follow-up.
And so . . . While Mr. Tammeus cuts off comments on his blog it's clear that he can't avoid push back on some rather controversial statements that are now being called into question.
