I like a Prairie Home Companion and all…

…but why on earth somebody who hosts a pleasant variety show needs to be a keynote speaker at a National Catholic Education Conference is utterly beyond me. I’d much rather hear from the priest at Our Lady of Perpetual Responsibility than from Keillor. When I want Catholic education I like to get it from educated Catholics, not old blue dog Democrats who neither understand nor care about the Church’s teaching. This is just conference organizers latching on to somebody famous outside the Catholic Church who happens to share the social agenda of the Kennedy/Kerry/Pelosi axis of dissent within the Catholic Church.

Me: I think serious Catholics should create an alternative organization to this clearly shark-jumped bunch.
