Archdiocese paper fires photographer over Scalia photo

Just when you thought Ratzi’s army couldn’t find another way to be more damnable, they pull a satanic monkey out of their morally bankrupt asses. (

A freelance photographer has been fired by the Archdiocese of Boston’s newspaper for releasing a picture of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia making a controversial gesture in the Cathedral of the Holy Cross on Sunday.

Peter Smith, who had freelanced for The Pilot newspaper for a decade, lost the job yesterday after the Herald ran his photo on its front page. Smith said he has no regrets about releasing it.

“I did the right thing. I did the ethical thing,” said Smith, 51, an assistant photojournalism professor at Boston University.

…Smith wouldn’t give up the photo earlier this week but chose to release it when he learned Scalia said his gesture had been incorrectly characterized by the Herald. Smith, who was standing in front of the judge, said the Herald “got the story right.”

An archdiocese spokesman said it was a “journalistic decision” to can Smith, that it was a breach of ethics for the photographer to release the photo.

Yes, ethics…morality…from the very folks responsible for the rape and molestation of thousands. The ass-monkeys fly skyward.
