From LRC
  • Fr Z: wrong tone about bin Laden? Most clergy can be safely ignored when opining on political matters, and this case is no different. I agree with combox regular Jim C.: approving marque and reprisal, a literal police action. I understand why they did it (payback for Palestine and other things) but if you attack us at home, murdering nearly 3,000 people, you deserve to have Navy SEALs pick you off. That said, no whooping here and Lord, have mercy. The likewise orthodox AFAIK Fr Emmanuel Charles McCarthy is the error of the other end of the spectrum.
  • Reminder: Blessed JPII angrily opposed the Iraq war. The neocons ignored clergy on foreign policy too. But they happened to be wrong.
