This blog started out as a companion piece to my book, Musings from the Christian Left (excerpts of which can be found in the July 2004 link) and to support a planned radio show. Now, its simply a long term writing project from a Christian Left Libertarian perspective (meaning I often argue for liberty within the (Catholic) Church, rather than liberty because the church takes care of a conservative view of morality.

Letter From B'more: Monday Review | National Catholic Reporter

Letter From B'more: Monday Review | National Catholic Reporter by MSW.  MGB: If the American Bishops use the New Evangelization as an excuse to beat the faithful over the head with political issues that they barely understand (it is not there area and they are badly staffed) we will simply tune them out all the more and may cut off their funds.  We are promised that the Church will never fail, but the Church is more than the bishops.  I see this as a temporary problem.  When the majority of bishops were teens during the spirit of Vatican II days, you will see the Church lurch to the Left and even conservative young priests will follow them, since when you scratch a conservative you get a 50-50 chance of finding someone liberal at heart who is just being careful (if you doubt that, look at the history of Supreme Court nominees appointed by Republicans).
