Will conservative Catholics celebrate? My celebration amounts to a mere sigh of relief.
Carr’s retirement was announced in yesterday’s Washington Post. As you read through this announcement, keep in mind the leftward tilt of the Post in general as it heavily influences the language you see in Boorstein’s piece. She opines that we Catholics are worried – worried sick I tell you – about who will replace him. Why? Because Carr is a “dying breed: a Catholic moderate with a foot firmly in both camps”. Got that? I on the other hand have no worries at all. How could any replacement for Carr be any worse, unless he were Karl Marx himself?
