Phoenix follies, cont.
Bouncing around the Net one finds a predictable spectrum of opinion regarding the clash between the Phoenix DA and Bishop O'Brien over the import of O'Briens confession. For my money, Rod Dreher gets the call (this is taken from a message thread on Amy Welborn's blog):
Bishop O'Brien, having signed a pretty straightforward statement, is now saying that the statement doesn't say what it pretty clearly says. I don't see any true contrition here. I see a venal creature who put his name to a document to save himself from the possibility of going to jail, and who, now that the danger of jailtime seems to have passed, wishes to disavow any responsibility for having done that.
