One More Thing on That HuffPo Post

I got a kick out of one passage in it:

“These are the usual suspects,” said Chris Korzen, Executive Director of the liberal Catholics United and co-author of the forthcoming book, A Nation for All: How the Catholic Vision of the Common Good Can Save America from the Politics of Division. “In general terms, these are folks who have a history of putting partisan politics ahead of the teachings of their faith. It is more of the same, and if they were serious about being engaged Catholics they would be challenging McCain on the war and torture where McCain is not on the side of Catholic theology.”

It’s that “in general terms” I loved. Because for Korzen to single out his opponents as bad Catholics would be divisive.
