For John, BLUF: What is that line about let he who is without sin cast the first stone? Nothing to see here; just move along.
This is from the blog of John C Wright, Author.
Here is how it starts:
A question for my fellow Catholics: when is the last time, on a nationally syndicated program of any kind, you heard a popular voice praising the Catholic Church, or saying she is right about everything?Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
I can answer for myself: it was Milo, on Bill Maher, and in his speeches in colleges, freely available on the internet.
And before that? I can name no one. I am not old enough to remember Fulton Sheen.
Is he a shameful and terrible spokesman for our beautiful Church? Yes, indeed, I fear he is. When I get to heaven, I will certainly chide Saint Mary Magdalene the whore and St. Matthew the tax-gathering collaborator, wag my finger under their noses, and demand to know why persons of doubtful morals speak up for Christ, embarrassing the righteous and the just.
Or maybe I will certainly not. I am too acutely conscious of my own sins and shortcomings to cast the first stone.
