Go, Lithuania!

Catholic News Agency reports that the Lithuanian Radio and Television Commission has fined MTV 3000 litas ($1435) for airing an anti-Catholic program, "Popetown". The Inspector for Journalistic Ethics in Lithuania, Romas Gudaitis, had said previously that the show should be banned because it incites religious discrimination.

Well, apparently, journalists in Lithuania still *have* ethics. Here in the U.S., inciting religious discrimination is perfectly ok, especially if its against Christians.

Bravo to Lithuania!

I applaud Lithuania for standing up for Christ.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
