Too Late For Us

(in Canada) but still useful. Amy Welborn begins a discussion of the intersection of Catholicism and politics. Note, in the comments Steven Greydanus mentions his on-going analysis also:

Is Catholic politico-talk too idealistic? « Charlotte was Both: Here’s my first question for you guys to discuss. Let me try to unpack the probably poorly-articulated question.

I don’t mean, “Is it too unrealistically oriented toward a greater good that can never be achieved?”  No. I mean - is Catholic politico-talk, particularly in the present moment, as most of us are engaging in it, taking place essentially on the level of vague assertions, associations and concepts? And - are we avoiding and ignoring the way that government and political processes actually work?

Read the rest...

(Via Charlotte was Both.)
