Op-ed on Boston Catholic Charities from NCR

Extremists drive church agenda

"We can become the absolutists, the literalists who keep cutting off limbs and poking out eyes to fend off that which we find disagreeable. Or we can rediscover the robustness of true Catholicism. We can recognize that politics is not religion. We can rejoin the fray, making our points by persuasion and example, not by ultimatums, sulking and walking away."

This from the National Cath. Reporter Editor--He talks as if his faith were a CAN OF BEER!
I am surprised Hitler and the terrorist comparison is not made in this piece. I have heard it so many times before now. It's just very sad.
