America’s Honest Archbishop–Charles Chaput

On a recent trip to Philadelphia, I was privileged to attend Mass celebrated by the Archbishop of their diocese.

My sons read his book…(Render Unto Caesar).

As we spoke after Mass he said something I found inspiring…”I believe Catholics should get involved in politics.”

Did he read my mind…because I’m pretty sure he never read this blog?

Here’s the best thing I read by the Bishop from his Wikipedia page…(my Democrat Catholic friends won’t like it, but since he’s an Archbishop, they’re not allowed to call him a bigot…but don’t worry, the rest of the liberals in the country will):

As reported by EWTN Chaput has criticized what he views as a “spirit of adulation bordering on servility” that exists towards Barack Obama, remarking, “in democracies, we elect public servants, not messiahs.” The archbishop states that Obama tries to mask his record on abortion and other issues with “rosy marketing about unity, hope, and change.” Chaput also dismissed the notion that Obama was given a broad mandate, reasoning he was elected to “fix an economic crisis” and not to “retool American culture on the issues of marriage and the family, sexuality, bioethics, religion in public life, and abortion.”
