From some of the comments I see lately, I find it worthwhile to recall the words of Father Gillis: Whom the gods would make bigots, they first deprive of humor.
E.g., no, I am not really going to pay people a dollar to read something other than Abp Chaput's new book. That is a joke, not a lie nor a mean-spirited remark, albeit I confess it is a little snarky. Abp Chaput's views on church-state matters are well known and my disagreement with those views is also well known. I am told that the Abp himself has a good sense of humor and I hope that his acolytes will try to develop one too.
