A modern Catholic Worker group loses it
Like many/most have lost the saintly Dorothy Day’s orthodoxy (most people forget that traditional Catholicism includes her*) so this group has traded in her personal pacifism for the hawkish interventionism of the conventional left. Makes about as much sense as an Earth First! spotted-owl shoot as P.J. O’Rourke said but that’s political correctness for you. If Mr Bush’s minders took the peace movement seriously they’d shut them up by doing something like this. From Joshua Snyder.

Update/correction: Reader Brian M says this is not a CW house.

*Like Fr Feeney on Nagasaki and that Tridentine Mass defender Alfredo Cardinal Ottaviani wanted Vatican II to condemn nuclear weapons.
