By Phil Lawler ( bio - articles - email ) | Jul 20, 2017
Marcelo Figueroa—the co-author, with Father Antonio Spadaro, of that astonishing Civilta Cattolica essay—is not dismayed the critique offered by Archbishop Charles Chaput. On the contrary, he tweets: “Esto me confirma que escribimos lo correcto.”
If you say he’s right, that confirms he’s right.
If you say he’s wrong, that confirms he’s right, too, because if you disagree with him, that confirms you’re wrong.
This is called dialogue.
