Caricature is hardly ever a way of resolving thorny ethical issues and the reason is that it remains on the surface and despite its shock effects it merely manages to trivializes them; to wit the famous or perhaps infamous Danish cartoons lampasting Mahomed... But then again judging from today’s general theme as expressed on the very cover of today’s issue, this may be an only too familiar expression of a near dogmatic principle among the left leaning intelligentsia. As I stated in an article of only six months ago (6 May 2001) titled “Anti-Catholicism: The Last Acceptable Bias?” this intriguing phenomenon still alive in the 21st century “ sometimes takes the form of a dogmatic principle, practically a profession of faith, of the extreme ideological left. It is as if one needs the espousal of anti-Catholicism to have one’s credentials as a politically correct enlightened modern person ratified. There is a book out which thoroughly describes this phenomenon in the United States. It is by Mark Massa, a Fordham University Theology professor, and is titled Anti-Catholicism in America: The Last Acceptable Prejudice.” The book ought to be a must for any-one that suspects that there may be another side to the issue and it cannot be provided by a caricaturizing cartoons.
