Since when is family life and the well-being of our teen-agers a purely secular matter? Whether the editorial board of The Times agrees or disagrees with the position of Archbishop Mahony, it is an unwarranted assault upon the right of free speech to accuse the archbishop of intrusion when he is speaking not only as a religious leader of one-fourth of the children who attend public school but also as a leading citizen of Los Angeles. There is no dimension of the human condition without a moral component.
