AEI held a fantastic conference two weeks ago on the intersection of Roman Catholic thought and U.S. public policy and culture. (I wanted to blog this earlier, but deadlines got in the way.)
The conference featured keynote addresses from Cardinal Wuerl — who discussed the importance of Catholic social teaching in the world today, the vocation of the laity to participate in public life and to renew and sanctify the temporal order, and much more — and from Bishop Robert Barron, whose keynote criticized what his excellency termed a “beige Catholicism” (I love that) that is too culturally accommodating, proposed a new model for dialogue between the Church and the broader culture, and contained many fascinating observations about American public life.
