Priest sacked by MIT for thinking precisely

The thought police raised a small ruckus and got the Archdiocese of Boston to instruct a priest to resign from his job as a chaplain at MIT.

Father Daniel Moloney had written an e-mail that succinctly reviewed Catholic thinking on sin, justice and mercy.   He remarked on some allegations, including that Officer Chauvin acted from racist motivation, that are going around in common parlance but that are not known facts.   Father Moloney’s note got circulated, misquoted, mischaracterized and distorted, including by MIT officials.  The Archdiocese immediately adopted some of the mischaracterizations and promptly caved....

Of course, the GOP Convention is only partially moving.  The Floor Committees and the preliminary business sessions are still going to happen in Charlotte.   But the big show is headed to sunny Florida.... [Read More]
