Speaking of Ross Douthat
The man is a joy to read. One of the most careful, thoughtful, and intelligent commentators from an authentic Catholic perspective that hasn't sold itself to the Leftist devil, or the worst elements of the secular Right. He's not always easy, especially if you want to ignore wrong doing in favor of one side or another winning. But he's almost always close to right. If not spot on. Here he gives a much better take on Ted Cruz's now infamous encounter at an ecumenical event a couple weeks ago. Sadly, Mr. Douthat is a piccolo in a chorus of blaring trumpets. As wisdom and rational thought often are.
