The New York Times reports that “Catholic bishops and priests from major dioceses across the country will preach a coordinated message” on Sept. 8 to urge Congress to pass immigration reform that includes a “path to citizenship” for illegal aliens. Rest assured, if the homily were to be about Second Amendment rights, Attorney General Eric Holder would be threatening to revoke the church's tax-exempt status. ... The Toledo, Ohio, Block Bugler editorializes that Al Jazeera America — the mouthpiece of the radical cop-killing and Coptic Christian church-burning Muslim Brotherhood, once described as the “go-to network for al-Qaida propaganda” and now available on U.S. cable — is a “fresh voice” that “Americans should welcome.” Sure, Al Jazeera has an “image problem,” The Bugler opines, but it's just “another point of view.” Insanity comes in many forms. ... Al Gore, who profited handsomely paving the way for Al Jazeera's U.S. entree, likens climate change skeptics to racists, homophobes and those who enable an alcoholic's denial. Oh, this just in — the United States recorded 2,899 record cold temperatures versus 667 record warm temperatures between July 24 and Aug. 19. ... Thursday last, the Corbett administration sent to this newspaper a proposed commentary by Lt. Gov. Jim Cawley detailing all the positive things surrounding Marcellus shale natural gas extraction. Indeed, the positives abound. But the commentary read more like a piece of campaign literature in support of Gov. Tom Corbett's re-election. The public paid for it. And that's wrong.
