Fr. DEAR’S PROBLEM

There is an article written by Father John Dear, SJ, in the National Catholic Reporter that is a must read for Catholics who think they’ve heard it all. Just click here.

We can’t quite figure out how Father Dear’s professed commitment to feeding the world’s poor squares with his decision to dine at pricey restaurants like the former “Windows on the World.” Does he realize all the soup kitchens he could have contributed to if he just elected to go to McDonald’s instead?

More important, those who can’t tell the difference between fighting for evil, and fighting against it, are not speaking the language of Catholicism. Furthermore, they owe their very existence to those of us—we are called veterans—who know better.
