Like talking to 5-year olds
How to give the most shallow possible interpretation of the Pope's proposal about education and Christian identity: reduce it to a problem of discipline. The amazing thing is that both "liberal" and "conservatives" share exactly the same mentality, and both seem totally unaware of (and uninterested in) what Benedict XVI has been talking about. Regensburg, the speech at La Sapienza etc: they are just irrelevant to the official U.S. Catholic intellighentsia. All they want to know is if the Pope is going to intervene in their squabbles.
