Mahony couldn’t find the measly $6 million to restore beautiful St. Vibiana’s, but he had no trouble finding a helluva lot more money than that to construct his Aztec temple up the street, and yet millions more in hush money for the altar boys he allowed his gay priests to molest.
He is a bad shepherd.

Aztec temple up the street
Bah ... Aztec temples were a whole lot better looking than the Taj Mahony. That miserable abhomination should be imploded.

(Western Civilisation is aborting, buggering, and contracepting itself out of existence.)
In 1999, Media Mogul Rupert Murdoch made a $10 million contribution toward the construction of the new Los Angeles cathedral. But the fact that his TV stations and movie productions are some of the sleaziest, did not stop Los Angeles Cardinal Roger Mahony from anointing him and his wife as members of the Pontifical Order of St. Gregory the Great in January, 1998. This knighthood, bestowed on behalf of the pope, is given to persons of "unblemished character" who have "promoted the interests of society, the [Catholic] Church and the Holy See [Vatican]."
It is also curious that since Murdoch was knighted for his "unblemished character", he abandoned his wife of 31 years and married one of his "dynamic, tall and gorgeous" female employees who is half his age. When Cardinal Mahony's office was asked if the knighthood honor would be revoked, a spokesman replied, "As far as I know, once you've got it, you've got it for good."
In 2002, Rupert Murdoch purchased a burial space in the cathedral's crypt.

Plus that disaster of a building, the new cathredral in LA will stand as a reminder of the disaster of what is known as Cardinal Mahony. Will rejoice when he calls it quits in a few years. I bet the Pope will rejoice too.

Argus, that is EXACTLY what the new ‘cathedral’ is — an Aztec Temple. I do NOT like that cathedral, starting with the ‘Mary’ (and I use that name loosely) above the doors. And aren’t the doors covered with the icons of many religions? UCK. And UCK to Mahoney, too. Bad Shepherd indeed.
