I could not document all the occasions I have read errors and misreports in the EP Times.

We are not talking about errors or misreports from other times and other stories. Just "document" the error here with hard evidence. So far, you haven't done so

Look, your quarrel is NOT with me. What you are guilty of (and this happens regularly on this forum) is the logical fallacy called "shooting the messenger."

If what you claim is true than Fr. Rodriquez has been slandered, libeled and can sue for defamation. If it were, in fact, true I would have expected legal action to have already begun in this case.

However, I am not aware of any lawsuits pending. Therefore, I will simply quote what was written in the El Paso Times until you or anyone else can show hard evidence that it is false.

So far, you haven't done so and Fr. Rodriquez's letters are not relevant to what the Times published.

Fr. Rodriquez is a good priest. That is not the issure here. He's getting a raw deal. That is not the issue here. I wish he were in my parish. That is not the issue here.

The ONLY issue is did Fr. do or did he not do what the El Paso Times has written that he did.

A local priest who became involved in a recall effort of the mayor and two City Council members was reassigned to a church somewhere in West Texas because of his activities. www.elpasotimes.com/newupdated/ci_18945278

Furthermore, if you are to beleived than we must also discount what
Fr. Rodriquez's Bishop has said in his own news release. Are we to distrust the news release from his bishop as well?

"(Father) Rodriguez has recently challenged certain city officials to participate with him in a partisan debate on issues related to an upcoming election," said Ochoa. "This type of intervention in the political in the political process by religious organizations such as the Diocese of El Paso and San Juan Bautista Church is not permitted under Section 501 of the Internal Revenue Code."

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.

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.) Those letters can be read at sanjuan.webhop.org - just click on the larger button near the top for "Articles by Fr. Rodriguez." The proof is there. Sadly, this minimal research is something the El Paso Times journalist did not even do (although they had these articles since they printed them in their paper).

Holy Cannoli stated an error.

Holy Cannoli simply stated what is written in the El Paso Times.

If you have evidence that proves the El Paso Times is mistaken, please post it. If not, you are merely engaging in wishful thinking which has no evidentiary value.

Holy Cannoli stated an error. Fr. Rodriguez never participated in the political recall effort. People have slandered and misrepresented the situation by saying that. Anyone can verify this by reading the public statements he made. He simply taught the teaching of the Church, quoting the Catechism, the USCCB's documents, Our Lord Himself, and reputable professionals. He insisted on the moral …More

Anyone can verify this by reading the public statements he made. He simply taught the teaching of the Church, quoting the Catechism, the USCCB's documents, Our Lord Himself, and reputable professionals. He insisted on the moral teaching and always remarked, once you know the Church's teaching, the actions a faithful Catholic must take should be obvious. But he himself DID NOT participate in the recall effort or political process. Unfortunately, many other priests in El Paso are in fact actively involved in political processes and reamin uncensored or checked.

Bishop Ochoais who sent Fr. Rodriguez away is a former auxiliary bishop of Los Angeles consecrated by Cardinal Roger Mahoney.

A good priest is always where he ought to be.

Totally illogical statement. Whether or not it is true depends on many factors including the dispostion of the priest's bishop.

Bishop Ochoa said the teaching of the Church on homosexuality must be taught in season and out, but clergy "cannot be involved in partisan efforts aimed at supporting or opposing candidates for political office and efforts …More

Fr. Rodriguez was participating in a recall effort against the mayor and two city council members. It's the political/electoral involvement and very likely the bishop caving to pressure from politicains in El Paso that, in my opinion, sent this solid preist to some out of the way town where he couldn't ruffle local political feathers.

From several weeks earlier, there was also this that started the cowards in the diocese to plot against this priest.

Good afternoon and thanks for the news, Doina

Trinitas
The only isolated parish I know of is the one found in hell.

Our Lord commenced His ministry from a lonely place.

A good priest is always where he ought to be.

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. If this "bishop" left the comfort of his chancery and saw that his church was full of devout parisheners maybe he would have defended him. And for all those …More
In regards to Father Rodriquez...

If this "bishop" left the comfort of his chancery and saw that his church was full of devout parisheners maybe he would have defended him. And for all those who have this view that clergy and hierarchy cannot be criticized or challenged in terms of promoting heresey or conflicting with Church teaching, I'll leave you with this: "A bishop is to have a special concern for priests, listening to them, using them as counsellors, ensuring that they are adequately provided for in every way, and defending their rights set forth in the Code of Canon Law."

Pray for the priests. Thanks, Doina, and God bless you.
