Truth and Leadership

Jack Connors, the chairman of Hill, Holliday, Boston's leading advertising agency, was interviewed recently for the NBC Nightly News regarding the scandals that have plagued the Catholic Church. Mr. Connors has long been extraordinarily generous to Catholic charities and has been supportive of the Church in countless other ways.

Mr. Connors said that Boston Catholics look to the Archdiocese for two things; "leadership and truth." What they've found is the antithesis of both. Cardinal Law's disgrace is now complete. That he hasn't resigned is yet more evidence that he is incapable of leadership.
