Gosh, it’s so hard to choose! I think I’ll have to go for both Monty. Favorite quote: “The company’s clients have included troubled energy company Dynegy Inc., Global Crossing during its bankruptcy, actress Halle Berry following a traffic accident and comedian Paula Poundstone after her child-endangerment case.”
Memo to the Cardinal of Los Angeles: It’s not about the skin-deep “image”. It’s about the soul-deep corruption. But our Lord said it best: “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you cleanse the outside of the cup and of the plate, but inside they are full of extortion and rapacity. You blind Pharisee! first cleanse the inside of the cup and of the plate, that the outside also may be clean.
“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you are like whitewashed tombs, which outwardly appear beautiful, but within they are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness. So you also outwardly appear righteous to men, but within you are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.” Matthew 23:25-28
Translation: forget your “image” Cardinal. Cleanse the inside of the cup and stop trying to look good. Do you not fear God?
