Earlier today, I posted a letter from a reader who reported that the Bishop of El Paso had attacked US troops in his Sunday sermon, and that the mother of a soldier let him have it. A few minutes ago, The Corner heard from a reader who contacted the El Paso chancery to complain, and was told that the Bishop hadn’t made the offensive sermon, that a religious order priest had done so. The bishop, the second reader was told, has always supported the troops.
I owe the bishop an apology. This was a stupid mistake on my part. I should have checked with the chancery before posting. I am sorry.
