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.

Re: Joe Guzzardi's Column: On Good Friday: Looking Back At America's Past—And A Prayer For America's Future

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.
