Scranton’s Clumsy Uninvite

One of the problems with the invite-then-uninvite mentality in conservative Catholic circles is that they can’t quite manage consistency. Al Gore no, but Arlen Specter yes. Curious, for both are pro-choice. But this is the Scranton diocese, and maybe they can be forgiven for mixing up their policy with the episcopal unheaval and all.

I think we’ll see more blunders along these lines in the future, and there will be Catholic activists and media folk ready to pounce on hypocrisy from the bishops. Archbishop Chaput has already been dusted up for a certain fuzzy policy he pulled out of somewhere.
