Getting a raw deal from the Star Tribune

A Sept. 19 article about the acclaimed Jeremiah Program mentioned only in passing that the program, which assists single mothers, “opened its doors near the Basilica of Saint Mary’s.” No mention in that article that the Jeremiah Program was founded by the basilica’s Rev. Michael O’Connor and was funded and supported by the basilica and the archdiocese. So it did not surprise me to see the headline “The shame of the Catholic workplace” in the Sept. 30 Opinion Exchange page. The Star Tribune dismisses and hides the Catholic Church’s involvement in the positive but is eager to sensationalize the negative.
