ROUGH AND READY?
Catalyst July/August Issue 1998
Out west, there is a place called Rough and Ready. There is even a English professor who lives there. We know this because Timothy May listed his home town in a piece he wrote for The Union, a newspaper from Grass Valley-Nevada City, California. He also listed his prejudice, namely anti-Catholicism.
May was given great room to bash the Church that he used to belong to, the trigger being the Church’s reconsideration of meatless Fridays. Instead of describing his hate-filled commentary, we simply want to note two things: one, only an anti-Catholic bigot would be given the right to vent on an op-ed page and two, only an self-hating ex-Catholic would be capable of writing such a screed. We conveyed our sentiments to The Union.
