Ross Douthat, of all people, fancies himself a Catholic intellectual, and the New York Times is enabling his delusion. First of all, there's no such thing as a Catholic intellectual anymore. The contradictions in the institutional Church have consumed its doctrine. Add to that the fact that Douthat is probably the second stupidest man on the NYTimes OpEd, and probably right behind Maureen Dowd for overall runner-up status and you can understand why I basically read the NYTimes for the box scores.
