What a novel idea...
Rhode Island Catholic newspaper is in the secular news:
Bishop Tobin hopes that the Rhode Island Catholic will reflect the diocese’s willingness to participate in the public discourse. But as publisher, one of many hats he wears, he has no intention of moving the paper away from what he describes as its core responsibility: to the teachings of Jesus and the Roman Catholic Church. “The essential mission of a Catholic newspaper is found in the words of Jesus Christ who commissioned his apostles to ‘go forth and teach,’ ” Bishop Tobin said.
An editorial in today’s paper states: “We will not print opinions that are in contradiction of church teaching — any more than a newspaper for, say, Greenpeace would print a letter in support of the slaughter of whales.”
Our Archdiocese DOES have a very fine Catholic diocesan newspaper... not the official one. The monthly "Catholic Servant" can be found at many fine orthodox parishes across the Twin Cities area, including the (very-official) Cathedral of St. Paul!
