    Under the leadership of the ultraliberal Cardinal Robert Mahoney, the Archdiocese of Los Angeles’ annual Religious Education Congress  – billed as the biggest annual gathering of Catholics in the country – gained a reputation for functioning as a platform for dissidents who seek to undermine Catholic doctrine on life and family issues.  When Mahoney left office in 2011 in disgrace following revelations of his protection of priests accused of child sex abuse, he was replaced by Archbishop José Gomez, a former Opus Dei priest perceived as a conservative. Expectations were high that Gomez’s administration would lead to a reversal of...

    Editors Note: On January 13, Pope Francis appointed three consultors to the Congregation for the Causes of Saints and named Cardinal Roger Mahony as his special envoy to the celebration of the 150th anniversary of the Diocese of Scranton. Cardinal Mahony’s appointment as pontifical legate comes five years after his successor in Los Angeles, Archbishop José Gomez, relieved the cardinal of all public and administrative duties amid the release of files related to the clerical abuse scandal.

    DISGUSTING: PARDON of FORMER SHERIFF ARPAIO STATEMENT by CARDINAL ROGER MAHONY PARDON OF FORMER SHERIFF ARPAIO I am deeply troubled and disgusted by President Trump's pardon of Joe Arapaio, former sheriff of Maricopa County in Arizona. The former sheriff's tenure was marked by racial profiling, harassment of our Latino brothers and sisters, and the disruption of immigrant communities. He created fear and terror among so many immigrants, and not just in Arizona. Children here in California were afraid to go to school because of what they heard from Phoenix. He defied a court order to discontinue to round up immigrants...

    No, he’s not praying that Barack Obama will overturn Obamacare and no, he’s not praying that he will occupy the presidency one day. Instead, he’s alongside Rev. Rob Schenck (from Faith and Action) and Rev. Frazier White (a Democrat and Obama supporter) praying for Saeed Abedini, who has been in an Iranian prison for one year. He is being persecuted for his faith to Jesus Christ. Who says Ted Cruz isn’t bipartisan? I have not only interviewed Ted Cruz many times, but I have spent time with him and his family. He is true Bible-believing Christian who is not ashamed...

    A retired Los Angeles cardinal accused of mismanaging a child sex abuse crisis has been stripped of all administrative and public duties by his successor. Retired Cardinal Roger Mahony, 76, has apologised for his "failure", Archbishop Jose Gomez said on Thursday. The Los Angeles archdiocese, the largest in the US, has released thousands of pages of files on priests accused of child molestation. Cardinal Mahony retired in 2011, having run the archdiocese for 25 years. In 2007 Los Angeles paid $660m (Ł415m) to alleged victims of abuse, the largest sex abuse payout on record. Cardinal Mahony has publicly apologised for...
  • L.A. Archdiocese's reaction too little, too late

    02/02/2013 7:40:34 PM PST · by Alex Murphy · 54 replies
    The horror, the sordidness of the awful abuse of children by figures of spiritual authority is not much assuaged by current Archbishop Jose Gomez relieving Cardinal Mahony of "all public duties" after mounting evidence showed he shielded pedophile priests from law enforcement. So Mahony won't be overseeing the Sacrament of Confirmation at Our Lady of the Angels anytime soon. But he is not only still a priest who can perform Mass - he is still one of the 120 cardinals who form the leadership of a church with more than 1.1 billion adherents worldwide, in a line going back to...

    Syracuse -- Onondaga County Executive Joanie Mahoney sailed unopposed into a second term on Tuesday, a popular politician with a growing state and national profile. That doesn’t give her much in common with President Barack Obama, who is languishing in the polls as he heads into what will be a tough re-election battle. But there is one area where Mahoney identifies with the president: They are both facing what she says is reflexive opposition from Republicans whose main goal is to hold them back. “It’s just been, since he’s been elected, all eyes on 2012 — how can we defeat...

    LOS ANGELES -- A legal deposition released on Tuesday explains for the first time why Los Angeles Cardinal Roger Mahony didn't warn anyone after a priest admitted to molesting two young children 24 years ago. According to court papers, Cardinal Mahony says he didn't warn parishoners in1986 about Reverend Michael Baker because the now-defrocked priest said the two boys were illegal immigrants who had returned to Mexico. Mahony says he didn't take stronger action because he didn't know the victims' identities and because Baker told him the abuse happened outside the parish. The cardinal also said he was misled by...

Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, director of the Christian Defense Coalition, said the department is banning the event because of its message. "For over 16 years, law enforcement officials have given permission to the Christian Defense Coalition to use public 'sidewalk chalking' as a part of their demonstrations and vigils in the nation's capitol. The City of Washington, D.C., has also allowed numerous public 'chalk art displays'...
