GUEST OPINION: Once Again the New York Times Lies about Saint Serra

August 6, 2020 Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on a New York Times column attacking St. Serra: On September 23, 2015, Pope Francis canonized Junípero Serra, the 18th century Spanish priest who courageously defended the human rights of Indians in North America. A week later the New York Times maligned St. Serra in a front-page story by Laura M. Holson, "Sainthood of Serra Reopens Wounds in Colonialism in California." She said that "Historians agree that he [Serra] forced Native Americans to abandon their tribal culture and convert to Christianity, and that he had them whipped and imprisoned and sometimes worked or tortured to death." This was a bald-face lie. As I will show, the newspaper's response to my criticism was astoundingly unconvincing. Now this... Read more →
