Tributes to the late Father Richard John Neuhaus

January 09, 2009

Numerous publications and commentators-- including a congressman-- paid tribute to Father Richard John Neuhaus, who died yesterday at the age of 72. John Podhoertz of Commentary called him “perhaps the most important and influential religious intellectual in the United States since the passing of Reinhold Niebuhr.” Tom Minnery, senior vice president of government and public policy at Focus on the Family Action, said, “Richard Neuhaus was to moral principle what William Buckley was to conservative politics: a leader who brought intellectual heft, urbane wit and a gentle spirit to the great debates about truth.”
