Does this relate his Fonzie moment? And maybe his bending over to be too fair to the fringes? Does this kind of stuff happen when one goes over to
the dark side big media?
about this site
Catholic Sensibility is a personal blog by a Catholic layperson with comments and occasional other writings by Catholics and non-Catholics. We make no particular claims to have the completeness of a Roman Catholic expression of Christianity. It contains opinion, interpretation, and personal musings. That’s it. Nothing official or authoritatively connected to the Magisterium.

Maybe the Boston Globe has been taking flak from the big $$ subscribers and JA has been cautioned to throw them bones the bend to the right from time to time.
I went over and read the link; I guess I am getting a different take on it than a lot of other people. John Allen has been getting raked over the coals for this piece. A lot of people apparently think he shouldn’t give it the time of day. But he isn’t endorsing this particular point of view (I’m speaking mainly of the environmental issues). He is reporting on it. There are a significant number of people who hold a similar outlook or attitude. One can disagree, even disagree strongly, with the point of view, but it is problematic to be dismissive of people. As they say, even a stopped clock is right twice a day. Mostly there seems to be a lot of paranoia and fear. But one of the things that they fear is that governments could use abusive and coercive tactics in service of an agenda. If one studies the history of the past 100 years, one can’t dismiss that fear as groundless. I’m sure that the Holy Father’s encyclical will affirm Christian principals in taking care of Creation; and this is badly needed in a field often dominated by secular viewpoints. But we need not to shoot a messenger who points out that everyone isn’t necessarily going to be on board.
