One of the Many Reasons I Like the Imaginative Conservative…

(apart from their snappy new design) is that, unlike so many conservatives confronted with a Pope who says things that are not in accord with the normal playbook, the folks at Imaginative Conservative attempt the astounding spectacle of trying to listen to him, understand him, and even apply his teaching to their lives instead of panicking, patting him on the head as a simpleton, or babbling about how we need to resist his heretical liberalism. It’s a refreshing and hope-filled break from the infallible anti-charism of discernment one so often meets in conservative circles as it anoints Obviously Wrong Folk Heroes while ginning up the mob to protect the Church of Truly True Catholics from its greatest threat: Pope Francis.

Thank you Imaginative Conservative! More like you please!
