Boston Globe launches 'Crux' site, dedicated to Catholicism

Catholic World News - September 03, 2014

Crux, a new web site sponsored by the Boston Globe and dedicated to Catholic affairs, was launched on September 2.

As the service made its debut, John Allen, the former National Catholic Reporter columnist whose hiring gave credibility to the Globe initiative, offered a column listing four challenging questions that could be-- but have not been-- asked of Pope Francis.

    The Globe surrounds its Catholic interest by way of its Crux column with the likes of a notable reporter from a dissident bi-weekly, a former priest who never hesitates to express his anti-Catholicism and a former Boston Herald columnist whose "Catholicism" credentials consist of nothing but shrill diatribes against the faith she supposedly embraces. The crux of the Globe's Crux column is that it is a joke. Perfect fodder for the harpies who have long since left the faith.

    It's a start but its mission statement uses "safe" language and is not really Catholic in tone.
