Pete's Paper-cy


The Echo has always printed a sufficient religion section. So why is Pete Abler, a self-professed Crosslake Catholic, continually allowed adjunct space to publish his superfluous Catholic-agenda column?

Pete’s recent anti-abortion ramblings spin mostly red-herring logic and draws attention away from the fact that, since the dark ages, his church has supported unrestrained human reproduction no matter what damage it inflicts on society!
