Dear Holy Cannoli. Clearly you are not from El Paso. I could not document all the occasions I have read errors and misreports in the EP Times. Be that as it may, please read the articles written by Fr. Rodriguez for yourself. You can then see that he was promoting Catholic teaching (and not favoring a paritcular candidate over another, as is prohibited by IRS code, and not involved in the recall process.)

Fr. Rodriguez was participating in a recall effort against the mayor and two city … [More]
In regards to Father Rodriquez... This is what happens when a devout priest, who is in full accord with ALL the doctrines of Holy Mother Church, and who fearlessly defends the sacredness of marriage is removed and sent to an isolated parish.

And for all those who have this view that clergy and hierarchy cannot be criticized or challenged in terms of … [More]
