Fr. Wilson speaks the Truth

Talking about “the media” indiscriminately in discussing this scandal is dumb. Rod Dreher =/= Bill Keller. The former has done the noble work of a good Catholic journalist who seeks reform and tries to obey the injunction of St. Paul to “Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them.” (Eph 5:11). The latter is, not to put to fine a point on it, a nitwit who seeks to exploit the sins of the Church’s members to foist on the Church an agenda little different in its essential from that of Paul Shanley. There’s a difference between speaking the truth and telling lies. Many honorable journalists have tried to do the former, many other sleazeballs have done the latter. Don’t moosh them all together.
