Who's in charge?

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles ) | Jun 18, 2004

Who's really giving the Kerry campaign its best advice on dealing with Catholic bishops?

Is it the Unitarian who helped disrupt services at St. Patrick's cathedral?

Or is it the Jesuit who defied the Pope?

Let's see: Father Drinan violated his vow of obedience by running for Congress repeatedly is spite of the Pope's clear orders; he flouted Catholic teaching by supporting Clinton's veto of the partial-birth abortion ban; now he tells the world that Holy Communion is a "nonissue" for a Catholic politician. Yup, that sounds like the Kerry campaign line, all right.

I think I liked the Unitarian better.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Fr. Drinan needs to be definitively disciplined. Who is allowing this fellow to do as he pleases? It is an embarrassing scandal that someone like this can keep spouting off such nonsense.

    I'm just impressed you were able to distinguish the Unitarians from the Jesuits. That takes some practice...
