From the Washington Post. My earlier post included a link to praise for Wuerl by National Catholic Reporter editor Tom Roberts. I'm cruising the 'net looking for a positive quotation from Margaret-what's-her-name of Commonweal. Then Wuerl will have the lefty dissenter hat-trick, won't he?
The Rev. Thomas Reese, a senior fellow at Georgetown University's Woodstock Theological Center and former editor of the liberal Jesuit magazine America, called Wuerl's appointment "a vote for continuity."
"He and McCarrick are pretty much in the same place on issues, especially the one that's of most concern to Catholic Democrats on the Hill -- that they'll still be able to go to Communion," Reese said. "He's totally in line with the pope on Church teaching, but he's not going to be heavy-handed. And he's just a nice guy."
I suggested on Gerald Augustinus's nice little blog, The Cafeteria is Closed, that in fact the cafeteria has reopened.
