A New Type of Terror Approaches

There are terrorists among us.

Not terrorists like those who attacked us on Sept. 11, but ones just as dangerous.
Terrorists who destroy lives, skirt the law and prey on the innocent. These terrorists aren’t just among us here in America either. They are a multi-national force that has been around for thousands of years.
These terrorists are the Catholic Church – and they need to be stopped
We’re all familiar with the scandal; so much so, in fact, that all one has to do is mention “Catholic priest,” and people instantly know to what scandal you refer.

"I am a student at Texas Wesleyan University. This is the student-run (but school-sponsored and faculty-supervised) school newspaper to which I'm linking. I picked up a copy of The Rambler today while getting my morning coffee and nearly spewed coffee across the shop when I came to this headline. The author, while this column is listed on the "Opinion" page, is a newspaper staff member (the Opinion Editor, to be precise) of The Rambler. 

I don't post on here very often at all anymore, but I admit that once I stopped grinding my teeth my first thought was that this is a situation in which I could use a good FReep.

So, FReepers, your assistance would be most welcome. Do you find this article irritating? Ill-informed? (The letter referenced a few paragraphs into the article was written by Cardinal Castrillon Hoyos, not then-Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger.) An example of ludicrous journalistic (if this article can be dignified as such) bias? Even, perhaps, bigoted? Let your opinions be heard!

Chuck Fain (Author of the article, Opinion Editor of The Rambler):

Dr. Harold Jeffcoat, President, Texas Wesleyan University:

Dr. Steven Daniells, Dean of the School of Arts and Letters:

Dr. Kay Colley, Student Media Director (Dr. Colley interviews and hires the student editors):

Kelli Lamers, Faculty Advisor to The Rambler:

Prefer to let your disgust be "heard" via pen? 1201 Wesleyan Street, Fort Worth, TX 76105

Perhaps you communicate best via telephone? In that case, dial 817-531-4444 and ask to speak to whichever administrator you'd prefer. The Rambler's number--answered Monday and Wednesday 10-5 and Friday 10-3--is 817-531-7552.

Your assistance is most gratefully received. Should anything occur publicly about this (a statement in The Rambler, perhaps?) I will, of course, put up a link to it here on an update post.
Thank you all for your assistance.
