Local blogger, "Cathy of Alex", who vigorously makes her points regularly at The Recovering Dissident Catholic, also sends them to the subjects of her scorn at times. Using her real name, Janice LaDuke questioned why the Spirit would profile a pro-choice Catholic legislator who voted against the Church's "non-negotiable" life issues, HERE.
Joe Towalski, the Spirit's editor, replied unconvincingly in an editorial defending himself.
The casual reader, which most newspapers could be described as, might think that the legislator's pro-choice positions were acceptable, as written up in the original article last week. Here is Janice's original post. (Articles from previous issues of the Spirit cannot be accessed with a computer).
