A crushing rejoinder
When a dean from Notre Dame has an op-ed piece published in the New York Times, you can be confident that he's attacking, not defending, Church teaching.
If you used that rule of thumb to make a bet about Mark Roche's essay in the Monday Times, you made some money. In this case, Roche is arguing that good Catholics should vote for Kerry.
Fortunately there are some solid Catholic professors on campus who have the capacity to set things straight-- even if they can't get their work into the Times. Law professor Gerry Bradley combines with Princeton's Robert George in a devastating critique of Roche's argument, available through National Review Online. Don't miss it; their demolition of the pro-Kerry argument is complete.
