A daily newspaper in a smaller community carries a greater responsibility.
The Thursday "political cartoon" implies the Catholic Church condones pedophile actions. This malicious statement is obviously inaccurate and is a direct insult to all the Catholics of this lakes community. The Church has constantly condemned this terrible activity no matter the segment of the community which it appears.
The Editorial Board's decision to run such a flagrantly false "cartoon" is more than just bad judgment.
The Dispatch owes the Catholic Community and all its readers an apology for that decision.

I was saddened and dismayed by the blatantly anti-Catholic cartoon on the editorial page Thursday.
How ironic that it should appear on Valentine's Day -- a day of love.
