what it is and isn’t, is being discussed over at the Register.
Speaking of the Register, I am so tired of Pat Archbold’s blog posts. I don’t mean to be a hardass about the guy, but it just feels at best paranoid, and at worst horrendously critical of the Roman Pontiff. I see a lot of the same stuff at Fr. Longenecker’s combox (though Father is better at being more level-headed) I don’t see this stuff even at Father Z’s, he has no patience for it, and his traditionalists commenters seem for the most part sane.
Then again it’s my fault for clicking on them.
I agree, come Catholic writers can be annoying, as much as some http://www.catholicregister.org/non-Catholic ones, I guess. That is one reason I almost never read “your” Register, except when Mark has a link to it. On the other hand, when I mentioned something along these line to my parish priest, he suggested, rightly I think, that I should pay more attention to “our” Catholic Register… (which I had never thought about) To find more, please go to http://www.catholicregister.org/ and take a look at the Canadian Catholic Register. There is hardly any politics in it…Of course, some of the local stuff will not be very interesting to you, but it does have some good coverage.
Sorry, some of the hazards of “cut & paste”. The second line should begin with “non-Catholic one, I guess.” My cursor had moved without my knowledge.
America is a nation obsessed with politics in the way that Argentines are obsessed with soccer. A wag once said that here, even the illiterate know how to conduct a local election campaign.
