- The Washington Times - Tuesday, March 2, 2010

The Washington Times made a big brouhaha about Opus Dei and was outraged it would host Cokie Roberts, a “notorious dissenter against Catholic moral teachings on abortion, birth control and homosexuality” (“Opus Dei sells out,” Editorial, Feb. 17). I was with you on the whole story, and pleased to hear that Opus Dei cancelled the book signing event.

However, I could not help but be distracted by your recent practice of placing huge advertisements about sexual enhancement medications. The pictures that accompany the ads are outrageous. I am embarrassed and hope that my 16-year-old daughter doesn’t see them. I encourage her to read the paper and stay informed about world and local events, but these ads are not something I want her to see, especially when she is at an age when I am constantly fighting to keep her dressed appropriately.
