Diocese Courting Asians While Shunning Latinos

November 30, 2003

Re "Santa Ana Priest Is Fighting the Good Fight," Oct. 19:

I'm surprised by how shocked everyone is in Santa Ana over the Diocese of Orange attempting to tear down Our Lady of Lourdes Church and turn it into a Vietnamese congregation. The powers that be in the Catholic faith now treat their religion like a business, and that's why the predominantly Hispanic parishioners are being phased out and replaced with a more financially appealing demographic of professional Asian worshipers. Sadly, money is God nowadays.
