The on-going scandal of Mgr Basil Loftus’ columns in both the Catholic Times and Scottish Catholic Observer is worsening. He is increasingly blatant in his attacks on Catholic Faith and Morals and is personally nasty in his remarks about orthodox prelates – Cardinal Burke is one victim. In response to readers’ concerns, we have composed an Open Letter to the two Bishops with responsibility for this priest, since they have ignored our private letters. Please click here to read this letter, and to sign.
Whether or not you disapprove of the work of Catholic Truth is irrelevant. Take this opportunity to join us in publicly defending the Faith against the increasingly ferocious attacks by Mgr Loftus in the Catholic print media. Thank you – God bless.
Please send the link to our Open Letter far and wide. We must do our best to gather as many signatures as possible.
Monsignor Loftus has been allowed free rein in the so called Catholic newspapers, where, if a letter of concern or criticism is published at all, he is given the right to reply, often right there on the same page, same edition, so that, instead of correcting his errors, the editor is allowing him to reinforce them by responding (with baloney) to his critics. He uses bullying tactics (two priests threatened with legal action for their temerity in daring to criticise his writings) so it’s time the bishops – who have ignored all concerns expressed to date – were brought to account for their negligence and forced to take action without any further delay. We will send our letter with signatures appended in due course. Let’s make sure that there are just too many signatures for them to ignore. Over to you!
