Joyous Christian Greetings!

In your issue of 24 June, in the “Lecture Notes” column [Calendar], Imani Nyah made accusations that the Catholic Church supported the Fascist genocide against the Ethiopians. Specifically, the accusation was that the Pope blessed the planes used to bomb and gas civilians.

These charges are nothing short of fantastic. It is irresponsible of the Reader to print cheap potshots against the Catholic Church without offering some sort of authenticated documentation.

Printing the slanderous calumnies of Imani Nyah against the Pope is about on par with printing Louis Farrakhan’s anti-Semitic mendacities.

Yours for a Better World,
