04/10/09 - Saturday Forum: A Catholic Reader In Ohio Says Church Wrong On Immigration, But Offers Easter Prayer That Joe Guzzardi Returns To The Flock; etc.

Roger Cardinal Mahony may have spent Easter with his beloved illegal alien friends on Olvera Street blessing the animals. But in general, he`s been subdued in his advocacy of comprehensive immigration reform, at least compared to past years.

Just a week before Easter, Mahony was on trial in Fresno where two brothers George and Howard Santillan had brought a $20 million lawsuit claiming that they were molested by Monsignor Anthony Herdegen nearly thirty years ago.[Jury: Fresno Diocese Not Liable for Molestation by Priest, by Pablo Lopez, Fresno Bee, April 3, 2009]

Mahony was a high level administrator in the Diocese of Fresno during the period when the alleged molestations occurred.

While the court dismissed the charges, the trial must have been a painful reminder to Mahony of his complicity in multiple cases throughout the San Joaquin Valley that involved priest pedophilia.

Chukchansi lives in Fresno.
