    Cardinal Mahony Steps Up Attack on Arizona Immigration Crackdown May 2, 2010 Cardinal Roger Mahony, an outspoken critic of the Arizona crackdown on illegal immigrants, had a message for Arizona officials. "Thank you, Arizona," he said Saturday during a May Day rally in downtown Los Angeles. "Thank you, Arizona." Mahony has emerged as one of the leading voices against the new law. Two weeks ago, he compared Arizona with Nazi Germany after the state passed a strict new law that allowed police to check the legal status of anyone suspected of being an illegal immigrant. But Mahony said the Arizona...

    Arizona's Proposed Illegal Immigration Crackdown Akin To Nazi Tactics, Cardinal Roger Mahony Says April 19, 2010 Cardinal Roger Mahony blasted Arizona's proposed crackdown on illegal immigration, calling it "the country's most retrogressive, mean-spirited and useless anti-immigrant law." "American people are fair-minded and respectful. I can't imagine Arizonans now reverting to German Nazi and Russian Communist techniques whereby people are required to turn one another in to the authorities on any suspicion of documentation," Mahony wrote on his blog. The Arizona measure, which has yet to be signed by Republican Gov. Jan Brewer, would require police, if they suspect someone is...

    Coverage Without Borders By ROGER MAHONY Published: December 7, 2009 LOS ANGELES AS the leaders of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops noted last month, the current health care reform bills in Congress are fundamentally flawed because they fall short in three critical areas: the prohibition of federal financing for abortions and the protection of current conscience laws; the inclusion of meaningful provisions to ensure affordability; and the defense of immigrants’ rights to health care. Although all three areas are critical for this proposed legislation to be acceptable to the Catholic Church in our country, I would like to...

    September 23, 2009 ( - In a recent interview with, Cardinal Roger Mahoney declined to answer a question about whether or not he agreed with Cardinal Justin Rigali that the Obama health care bill should include language explicitly excluding any public funding of abortion. "This is way beyond my field," the cardinal responded."My field is immigration," said Mahoney, who is the archbishop of Los Angeles. "I really haven't kept up on that, and I spend all my time on this other. You have to get somebody who spends time on that."When asked whether he believed abortion should be funded under...

    Pope Benedict XVI came as our Pastor and as our Shepherd, and he spoke to us of our most human joys and sorrows, our hopes and our failures. He came in the name of Jesus Christ and he reminded us "to keep our eyes fixed on Jesus" [Hebrews 12:2]. Our Holy Father did not hesitate to lift up for us challenges and difficulties which our Church was facing here in the United States, but he never left us alone with our failures and problems. He stood with us, acknowledged the shame of sinful behavior, and urged us forward in...

    From an online interview with Cardinal Mahony: Joe: Hello Cardinal. With the growing interest in traditional worship of the Catholic Church are we going to see a more generous use of the Traditional Latin Mass?CardinalMahony: It is not correct to say "traditional worship" in our Church. For a small slice of Church history, Latin was the language of Mass. But the Council moved us beyond that to a new Roman Missal. We must continue forward with the Church. However, it is important to bring with us our Latin hymns and other treasures from the past ages.

    The American Catholic bishops are waging an intense, sophisticated campaign to promote their version of immigration reform, which happens also to be big business's version of immigration reform. The campaign comes complete with brochures, a well-designed website, prayer cards, bracelets, and phony arguments. In Wednesday's New York Times, Roger Cardinal Mahony of Los Angeles made his case. He not only opposes the House Republicans' immigration bill, which emphasizes enforcing the laws against illegal immigration, but has directed the priests of his archdiocese to disobey it if it becomes law. The bill, he writes, "would subject [priests], as well as other...

    In his most forceful comments to date, Mahony said he would instruct his priests to defy legislation — if approved by Congress — that would require churches and other social organizations to ask immigrants for legal documentation before providing assistance and penalize them if they refuse to do so. That provision was included in the immigration bill recently passed by the House of Representatives; a similar proposal is in the version that the Senate Judiciary Committee plans to begin debating this week.[snip] He [Mahony] said he also planned to step up his personal political advocacy, starting with a letter to...

    There are five of them --- three born in Vietnam, one in England and one honest-to-goodness Valley boy. Two are over age 60 --- one a widower inspired by a vocations talk at church, the other about to realize a dream that began in a Vietnamese seminary academy nearly half a century ago. One is mid-40s, a former actor and standup comic. The two youngest are (like the ex-actor) graduates of St. John's Seminary College in Camarillo.....

    Sinful or Certainly Sinful Vatican Curial Priests on Cardinal Mahony's "Rebellion" BY FARLEY CLINTON Naturally, the claim by Cardinal Mahony that he can authorize priests to ignore the liturgical rules the pope imposes on the Church has provoked comment and a fair amount of indignation among some of the clergy in Rome. I asked more than half a dozen American priests what they thought about it -- and a few non-American priests too. Of course there are American priests in Rome besides those who work for the Holy See; for instance, those who are teaching or studying theology here. But,...
