Letter: Cartoon was offensive to Roman Catholics

Published: Saturday, July 27, 2013 5:30 a.m. CST

To the Editor:

I take extreme umbrage at the “sketch view” on page A7 of the July 23 edition of the Daily Chronicle. It is an infantile attempt to ridicule the Roman Catholic Church and is an insult to all Roman Catholics. It does nothing but betray the perverse, tired ignorance of the “cartoonist” and those responsible for its publication.

The Chronicle should have the decency to publish an apology for such an egregious display of religious prejudice.
