US Catholic Bishops in the Culture Wars

Well, this week the United States Council of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) elected the Archbishop of New York, Timothy Dolan, to be their president, passing over the previous vice-president, Bishop Gerald Kicanas of Tucson. It’s virtually unheard of for the sitting vice-president not to move up to the presidency. I reflect on Archbishop Dolan and the meaning of this development in an article on Religion Dispatches, “US Catholic Bishops Elect a Culture Warrior.”

I am somewhat emabarrassed to add that WordPress, which hosts my blogpage, has recently changed the mechanism whereby one inserts a link to another webpage into a post. Until I locate someone under thirty to teach me how to work the new mechanism, I’m afraid I just have to paste the link to the Religion Dispatches  article below. Hoping things on my end will improve soon!
