  1. Interesting, very interesting. This is the kind of article that I love to read. It tells not only what happen, but why. But, why are all of Peter Freeman’s paragraphs only one or two sentences? Seems like most writers have never learned to put their thoughts together in a coherent manner.

  2. We have to remember there is always political and religious turmoil. The article on John Henry Newman over at News for Catholics had a great quote:
    As a Cardinal, Newman’s motto was Cor Ad Cor Loquitur (“Heart speaks to heart”). Today he still speaks to a Church dealing with scandal. Regarding this issue, he wrote:

    The whole course of Christianity from the first … is but one series of troubles and disorders. Every century is like every other, and to those who live in it seems worse than all times before it. The Church is ever ailing … Religion seems ever expiring, schisms dominant, the light of truth dim, its adherents scattered. The cause of Christ is ever in its last agony.

    But the Church was like Noah’s ark, “which did not hinder or destroy the flood but rode upon it, preserving the hopes of the human family within its fragile planks.”

  3. I’ve checked the DT and from what I gather the FABC is already re-thinking his position on gay marriage. If, no matter how holy a man he maybe, he comes down hard on either side, schism results. It’s going to be the same deal different day, He, like the present one, will end up being another mugwump.
