USA    ARCHBISHOP SAYS MEDIA PICK ON PRIESTS
The recent Kansas City Star series on AIDS in the priesthood is part of a wider effort by some media to "put the priesthood in an unfavorable light," according to Archbishop Michael J. Sheehan of Santa Fe.
   Writing in the March issue of his archdiocesan newspaper, The People of God, Archbishop Sheehan said that when the media 'picks on priests' and subjects them to more study than other groups, the primary motivation is a failure to understand priests' commitment to celibacy.
   "The secular humanist culture has a difficult time understanding a priestly vocation and I believe the Evil One is working hard to tear away at the dignity of priestly life and ministry," he said.
