Talk about shocked! I, too, was shocked to read the reply by Joseph O’Connell (“Writer should ‘judge not’,” Nov. 6) concerning Paul Rosenthal’s right-on essay (“Voting your faith in 2012: Social justice, abortion and apples,” Nov. 4).
Hateful? Confessional? Where does Mr. O’Connell get “judgment” in any part of the essay? Facts are facts. Mr. Rosenthal draws his conclusions from the mouths of “Catholics” Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi and Kathleen Sebelius, just to name a few. They consistently twist and bend Catholic teaching to suit their liberal, anti-Catholic philosophies.
Sorry, Mr. O’Connell, but your criticism does not apply here. And the Thomas Becket quote goes both ways.
