Mr. Reid's animus toward the archbishop has unhinged his better judgment. Read the whole Allen interview, deleting Mr. Reid's exegetical notes ("Speaking on behalf of his conservative followers . . . " Uh, no.)

As for the "pagan" remark, read the actual Chaput talk in Malta, which was keyed to Junipero Serra. The context is obvious and not at all uncharitable, much as Mr. Reid would like to imply otherwise. It's fascinating to watch how self-described progressives seem to develop rage virus over this Capuchin.

In defense of Archbishop Chaput, whom I know on a personal basis, he like many of the John Paul ll appointees are locked into a rigid, "by a church in fear" mode. They have had to deal with a wide spread sexual scandal that has rocked the church and has left them heading for the trenches. By retreating to a what they consider a safe place, where there is no room for new ideas, but a "paint by the old numbers" they, like those politicians on the far right are going back where there is no room for freedom of conscience, but those in authority have all the answers. Hopefully, Pope Francis will take a different approach to governing.

As a "right-wing" Catholic who absolutely loves pope Francis, I find your reporting of Bp. Chaput's comments very selective. I urge your readers to read the entire Allen/Chaput interview for themselves.
