Amen. I saw the NY Times article & wondered about it as well knowing too many Catholics who've abandoned their church because of doctrine they feel is the antithesis of Jesus' model. I sometimes also wonder if Senator Obama's model of empathy & inclusiveness stands obscured in people's judgment of a society with leaders who thoroughly evaluate before acting. Are we a world of reality TV that cheers for the one like us who is voted off the island or can we be a world that values kindness? We cannot, must not, be afraid to voice that hope for a kinder world.
