America magazine blogger Michael Sean Winters warns his fellow Catholic liberals that they ought to think twice about advocating lay leadership in the Catholic Church. He writes that “liberals should be especially aware that if there were elections for lay leaders, it is more likely than not that Bill Donohue and George Weigel and Raymond Arroyo would win at the Catholic polls.” But Winters isn’t too happy with such a prospect. “I will take my chances with the clericalist patriarchy, thank you very much.”
Bill thanks Michael for thinking of him, even if his comment is not exactly a vote of confidence. He adds that voting is for wimps, which is why he prefers a coup.
