Whoop-dee-do: A Catholic Bishop on MTV

Traditional Catholics were happy when Bishop Thomas J. Tobin replaced Bishop Robert E. Mulvee last year in the Diocese of Providence, R.I.

As noted in a Guest Column by Michael S. Rose, “MTV: A Recruiting Ground for Priests?” (Feb. 2002), the Diocese of Providence was trying to recruit seminarians with commercials on MTV, a crass and salacious TV rock music network that has nothing to do with Catholic values.

It is our understanding that Bishop Mulvee never appeared in a commercial, but Bishop Tobin (presumably “more orthodox”) does appear in the commercials. What desperation!
