TH favors Catholics?

As I went through the TH March 9, I found humor in the letter to the editor from Dan Avenarius. Mr. Avenarius wants equal rights about religion from the TH.

For an entire week, the Catholic Church is being burned at the stake on the front page—much like the sensational tabloids in the grocery stores that try to reel you in. Like a freak show—just buy the tabloid as you wait in line to purchase groceries. It is like the persecutions from centuries ago. I'm sure it is selling many newspapers.

Hey, Mr. Editor, how many people have canceled their subscriptions and asked for their money back?

Just like teachers, doctors or any other profession—one bad person doesn't mean the whole institution needs throwing out. Freedom of speech is what we are witnessing, but it also reeks of sensationalism.
