CW Nevius – columnist for the San Francisco Chronicle – has an integrity problem
August 18, 2012 § 7 Comments
TWO TIMES this week SF Chronicle columnist CW Nevius has published information that is either in conflict with facts or with statements he previously made.
On Thursday, August 16, 2012 Mr. NevANUS wrote a column about a growing controversy in the tightly knit Catholic LGBT community residing in the Castro neighborhood – the predominantly gay district of San Francisco.
In that column Nevius cites an event that never occurred as an example of outrageous queer behavior happening inside a Catholic Church:
It should also be said that some of the gay groups that have been using the hall have gone way over the top. Several years ago the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence featured a drag queen known as Peaches Christ, who waved a crucifix shaped like a dildo. Even longtime gay parishioners thought that was too much.
Mr. Nevius –
How do you explain the sentiment expressed in your column dated Saturday, August 18:
“There was a time, when this started, when Mirkarimi could have stood up, taken complete responsibility for a serious lapse and announced he was getting help. He might have kept his job. Instead, he’s done all he could to dodge the charges and avoid responsibility. If he loses his job, it is because he brought it on himself.”
with the sentiment expressed in your column from Thursday, March 15:
“And come on, do you really think Mirkarimi’s former colleagues want to grill him at the Board of Supervisors? That’s a no-win. He’s already said he is guilty; the rest is just piling on.”
Which is it – has he dodged charges and responsibility or has he already admitted guilt and is being exploited?
Has his admission of guilt faded from your memory?
Perhaps you heard from many anonymous (and fictional) LGBT Catholics living in the Castro neighborhood that Mr. Mirkarimi performed at the Moist Hole Redeemer Church waving a dildo/crucifix around and declaring his innocence.
Are you capable of discerning fact from fiction? http://www.sfgate.com/default/article/Corrections-Aug-16-3794876.php
