C’mon Caps! Another loss in Pittsburg. Now we have fallen to 2-2 in the series, after a 2-0 start.
Quick turnaround for the next game: tomorrow night. Yanni rules the roost in Pittsburgh.
Forgive me for saying that overall I find his speech rather turgid.
I agree with everything he said, of course. But I do not think this speech advanced the pro-life, pro-family argument very much.
I wish he had given a speech focused exclusively on what he said in paragraph 24. In my opinion, this is the territory that needs to be covered: the relationship between morality, law, individual freedom, and disputed metaphysical questions.
When the Holy Father visited the U.N. last spring, he tried to address this problem. Unfortunately, I think few people paid attention and/or understood what he was talking about.
What we are up against is: What is obvious to God-fearing people is NOT obvious to everyone else. In fact, many people think that we are obviously wrong to insist that human law must harmonize with God’s law. This Pulitzer-prize winner is one of those people.
Archbishop Burke rallied the troops. But he did not say anything that we troops–and everyone else–have not already heard.
