Defending the … faith?

The Archdiocese of Los Angeles leapt to action this week when a priest of the archdiocese denied an immemorial teaching held and cherished by generations of people around the world. Unfortunately, it’s not what you would have hoped.

A priest at a parochial school told students that there is no Santa Claus. Granted it doesn’t seem like a smart thing to do, but is it really the end of the word? To put it another way, when Catholic politicians are keeping abortion legal and creating gay marriage and your bishop is being sued for hundreds of millions for shuffling pervert priests around so they can abuse more kids, is this really something the archdiocese needs to be dealing with?

“There’s a time and place for everything, and this was not the time or the place or the age group to be talking about the true meaning of Christmas, at least in terms that young children cannot understand,’ Tamberg said.

So, according to the official spokesman of the archdiocese, a Catholic grade school is not the place to talk about the true meaning of Christmas? When and where exactly is it?
