A Catholic Viewpoint: Survival Requires Orthodoxy
http://www.npr.org/2013/03/16/174481609/...-orthodoxy

Quote:Host Scott Simon talks with Catholic Mary Eberstadt, senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, about what she hopes to see from Pope Francis. She argues that in an increasingly secular world, orthodoxy is what will keep the church vital.

Their reports on Catholicism are very hit or miss, but this time they actually found and interviewed an actual Catholic  :grin:
That was actually pretty good.  It's the most observant who are most orthodox, and the orthodox are the ones who receive scorn for their observance.
What kind of orthodoxy is Mr. Hahn talking about.... the orthodoxy of Vatican II?  :LOL:

Scott Hahn wasn't interviewed. It was Mary Eberstadt: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mary_Eberstadt. Scott Simon is one of NPR's very liberal journalists.

She was saying that observant Catholics are the ones having the children and handing down the faith.  Also, she was saying that there is a place for liberal Catholics, and that place is within the liberal mainline protestant churches.  :LOL:

Anyhow, it was a breath of fresh air, since their "catholic" interviewees are usually talking about women priests and married priests.
