A judge has finally cornered Cardinal Roger Mahony of Los Angeles and ordered him to provide a deposition by November. It will be one of the first depositions Mahony has give, since he’s been avoiding them like the plague. Apparently, resolving the lawsuits and getting to the truth is not something the cardinal is eager to do.
And remember that it was Cardinal Mahony who said in early 2002 that if he had done what Cardinal Bernard Law had done, he would have a hard time holding his head up as he walked down the aisle of his cathedral. He was also allegedly quoted anonymously as saying that Cardinal Law should resign. You don’t hear anything like that from him anymore.
