Not surprisingly, Andrew Sullivan confuses partisanship and principle.
As I say on Vatican Radio and elsewhere when asked to comment, Catholic does not equal Republican or Democrat. Catholic does mean taking seriously the Church’s teaching on innocent human life, however. And Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton should therefore both make Catholics pause for grave reasons. And Catholic sisters who are presumably teaching the faith through word and deed should know that.
But whatever. I’m a “theocon” Republican-party hack. That’s why I try to give honest assessments of John McCain, pluses and minuses, warts and all, ticking people on all sides off.
