Giving politics a faith lift

Bishop Thomas Olmstead of Phoenix has published online a new booklet entitled Catholics in the Public Square, the first of a series on various hot Catholic topics to be published by major American prelates. Here's the first line of the Zenit story where I learned about this: "All Catholics have a duty to bring faith to the forefront of political debates..." While the booklet is really about the role of the laity generally, the political angle will gain the most attention. That's needed.

I dig this guy. He's got the cojones so desperately needed in bishops today. He even stood up to the lavender mafia in his own diocese, prompting several resignations of openly gay priests and their sympathizers!

More, more, more!
