Letters to the editor: Too much Catholic bashing in media

I never wrote a letter to a newspaper before but after seeing the anti-Catholic cartoon Dec. 22, this is a first.
With newspaper membership falling, I find it hard to believe you would intentionally antagonize Catholics by attacking their faith and beliefs so blatantly.
You never demean the Jewish faith or Muslims but Catholics seem to be the “whipping boy” locally and nationally. We have to rethink our forgiving nature and start objecting to this anti-Catholic bias.
My friends and relatives also noticed this and if one more instance of Catholic bashing occurs in future issues. I will not renew my subscription but stay with my local paper which so far has respected our faith and feelings.
Barbara Biel,
